The Arms of Paul Andrew Sutherland, FSA

The Letters Patent recite the Grantee's ancestry in the male line through his grandfather and great-grandfather, each Andrew Guthrie Sutherland, to his great-great-great-grandfather, George Sutherland (1789-1867), a farmer, of Burray, Orkney, for and in memory of whom a Grant, without of course the cadet marks of the Matriculation (a bordure etc.), was made on even date. The marks refer to the Grantee's being his armigerous ancestor's first son's, third son's (white bordure), fourth son's (indented edge), second son's (crescent), only son.

The design of the arms follows the pattern for those of the Earldom of Sutherland (Gules, three mullets Or), distinguished by the inclusion of a battleaxe in chief which, with the distinctive crest, alludes to the Orcadian connection of several generations of this line. The motto is in response to that, Sans Peur, of the clan chief.

The achievements on the Letters Patent show the Grant in the left margin and the Matriculation in the right. Along the base of the document is an illuminated border combining the Scottish thistle with the Sutherland badge plant, the cotton-sedge.

The Achievement illustrated here is that of the shield granted by Lyon Court with the addition of a Maltese cross Argent (indicating a Knight of Justice in the Sovereign Military Order of Malta). The arms are interlaced with a rosary (denoting the profession of solemn, i.e: perpetual, vows), depending from which is another Maltese cross Argent. Knights of Justice in the Order of Malta use neither crest nor motto.

The rendering of the arms shown here are by David Waterton-Anderson.
