The Arms of Dr. George Manuel Burden, Baron of Seabegs

Painted by Margaret Spalding Court of The Lord Lyon

The three pilgrim's staves in the shield are often seen in arms of other families named Burden or Burdon. The schooner represents the Robert J. Dale, built in 1914 in Liverpool, Nova Scotia, and once captained by Dr Burden's grandfather, Captain George Thomas Burden. It also alludes to his great-uncle, Captain Eugene Burden, who surveyed Antarctica in 1947 and for whom the Burden Passage at the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula was named.

The estate of Easter Feddal, Braco, Scotland was in the hands of the Burden family for over 200 years, the family seat being Feddal Castle, now a ruin. Around 1720, James Burden, the Laird of Feddal had a famous duel with his neighbor Alexander MacGregor, Laird of Balhaldie and Chief of the Clan MacGregor on the banks of the Allan below Greenloaning. A standoff with the outlaw, Rob Roy MacGregor ensued.

The red spruce tree of the crest is the provincial tree of Nova Scotia, where the Dr Burden resides.

The Latin phrase of the motto, meaning "Health of the family", alludes to the family medical practice of Dr Burden.
