The Arms of David Ayre of Kilmarnoch,  Baron of Kilmarnock

Granted: Court of the Lord Lyon, 83rd page of the 85th Volume of the Public Register of All Arms and Bearings in Scotland.

Academic Qualifications: BA, BSc, BSc (Hons), MSc, DMS.

The armigerís forebears are Ulster-Scots (Hindman, Gordon, Reid, McMath, McKeag, Alexander). His paternal family - many of whom are registered Ayr - are formerly 'de Ayr' and of Ayrshire territorial origin. The Baron of Kilmarnock is the first of the Ayre name to be graciously granted Armorials in Scotland by the Lord Lyon, King of Arms.

The Arms were devised to associate the Ayre family with the feudal Lordship & Barony of Kilmarnock for all time. The Vert and Or chequy is taken from the shield of the old Burgh of Kilmarnock and is a reference to the Arms of Thomas Boyd of Kilmarnock, the original owner of the Barony. The antique crowns emphasise its great historical importance.

The hind's head (from Hindman) is a reference to the armigerís maternal family. The four gouttes represent crude oil and the owner's career (over a quarter of a century) in the Scottish oil & gas industry.

Greylag geese are residents and visitors to Scotland. The armiger and his wife watch their great flight formations as they migrate every year. They symbolise the adventure and benefits of travel, and the spending of winter months abroad. A greylag goose shown rising to complement the motto 'I rise to greater things' was chosen by the Baroness for the Crest.
