The Arms of Gerardus Wilhelmus Theodorus Cornielje

The armiger descends from Pierre Corneille d’Anville who, in the year 1637, was knighted by King Louis XIII in Paris. The knighthood was awarded to d’Anville because his son, the writer Pierre Corneille d’Anville, had published in that same year his famous ‘Le Cid’. By giving letters of nobility to Pierre Corneille the Elder, the son hence forward was regarded as born noble. The title of Chevalier was carried by both Pierre and his brother Thomas Corneille de L’Isle a famed playwright in his own right. With the knighthood also came a grant of armorial bearings [Azure, on a fess Or between three mullets Argent three lions’ heads erased Gules] however, it was felt that the arms in the original grant were not sufficiently close to the armiger’s family as so a new design was thought to be more appropriate.

In 2012, after a long discussion between the armiger and his siblings and taking into account the direct family of children and grand-children numbering thirty six in total it was decided to create their own coat of arms dating back to, and honouring their parents, but hinting back to their ancestors by incorporating elements of the original coat of arms. The armiger and his family received design assistance from Pro Heraldica in Stuttgart.

The arms are borne by the armiger, Gerardus Wilhelmus Theodorus Cornielje, author and musician (saxophone and vocals) born ’s-Heerenberg - The Netherlands June 1962; his wife Rachel Naomi Cornielje - Ben-Dror, dolphin-trainer and office manager, born Eilat/Israel August 1981;
