The Arms of David Alexander Richard Waterton-Anderson KSG

The Armiger is a Knight of the Equestrian Order of Saint Gregory the Great (Vatican State Knighthood, 2006); Order ‘Pro Merito Melitensi’ (Order of Malta -Silver Medal, 2012); The Military & Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem (Officer, 2015), Heraldic Artist, Genealogist, Associate Fellow of the International Association of Amateur Heralds. Founder & Chairman of the "Anderson Association," Highland Piper (1st Battalion Scots Guards, 2013-15)

On 2nd April 1526, James Anderson was appointed Carrick Pursuivant of Arms at the Court of the Lord Lyon. This James is claimed as ancestor of the Andersons of Arbrake and Kinneddar. In the 1566 Workman MS of Lord Lyon Forman, arms are recorded for Anderson of that Ilk (Argent a saltire engrailed Gules between a mullet in chief and three crescents in the flanks and base Sable) and it is claimed that James Anderson was recognised as representer of the race and clan.

The earliest sculptured arms used by the armiger’s Anderson forebears (Argent a saltire between three stars in chief & flanks and a crescent in base Gules) was used by the Andersons of Bruntstane and Dumbennan by Huntly from around 1600. This formed the pattern of many coats used by Andersons in the north-east of Scotland.

Through Gordon intermarriages, descendants of this family adapted their arms, in allusion to these connections (Argent a saltire engrailed between two stars in chief and base Gules and two boars heads erased in the flanks Azure), which were recorded in Lyon Register in 1673 - Vol. 1, fol. 239 for Anderson of Ardbrake & Westerton, co. Banff. The current representer now lives in South Africa.

The Andersons of Kinneddar, co. Elgin (settled there in 1691), were a junior scion of the Ardbrake line and later recorded a differenced version of these arms (Argent a saltire Azure between three molets in chief & flanks and a crescent in base Sable) at the Lyon Court in 1992 - Vol. 73, fol. 78.archives.

The Quartered Arms of David Alexander Richard Waterton-Anderson KSG

The Armigers quartered coat stems from a testamentary injunction in his mothers will (who was heir general to the English Barony of Everingham of Laxton, created in 1309) to take her name and arms in addition to his paternal name and arms. The three principal coats of Waterton, Fleming and Everingham were chosen as arms of affection for simplicity.

Arms: Quarterly; (1st) Argent a saltire engrailed Azure between three molets in chief & flanks and a crescent in base Sable [ANDERSON of KINNEDDAR]; (2nd) Barry of six Ermine & Gules overall three crescents Sable [WATERTON of WATERTON]; (3rd) Barry of six Argent & Azure, in chief three lozenges Gules, in fess point a rowel of five points Sable for difference [FLEMING of WOODHALL]; (4th) Gules a lion rampant Vair, armed, langued & crowned Or [BARON EVERINGHAM of LAXTON].

Authority for the three extra quarters: Early 13th century English Rolls of Arms.

Waterton Crest: (sometimes depicted) In front of a panache of feathers Argent, Sable & Gules, a crescent of the second.

Waterton Motto: (sometimes shown below the achievement) "BETTER KYNDE FREMBD THAN FREMBD KYEN" (Better a friendly stranger than estranged kin).

(The artwork is by the Armiger).
