Armorial Bearings of Margaret Hamilton of Rockhall, Baroness of Lag

The arms depict much of what is important in the armiger’s life. The silver tailor’s shears in memory of her father, a tailor, and alluding to the maternal family name of Silver; the two cinquefoils for the family name of Hamilton, one each for her son and daughter; the helm to mark her Scottish feudal barony.

The crest is an allusion to the tale of the Grierson of Lag who kept a monkey with a silver whistle and every time the monkey blew on the whistle the servants were expected to attend on the monkey, when Grierson died it was reported that the servants cut the monkey’s throat and thus Rockhall is reputed to be haunted by the ghost of the monkey.

The motto ‘Family Secure’ answers the Grierson motto of ‘Hoc Securior’ (All Secure). The armiger is the first to receive baronial recognition from the Lord Lyon since the abolition of feudalism in Scotland.
