The Arms of Dwyer Quentin Wedvick KCN, FSA Scot.

The arms are canting. The family is of Norwegian origin going back to Viking times with the name having various spellings with the most common perhaps being Wedvik or Vedvik. In Norwegian “ved” could mean wood as in woods or woodlot and “vik” as the source of a fjord. Thus the fir tree stands for the woods and the shaped the barry wavy Az. & Ar. for the source of the fjord’s waters and waves.

The armiger, Dwyer Quentin Wedvick, born in 1940 is a graduate of Darrow School, New Lebanon, NY and the University of Nebraska at Omaha, Omaha, NB, with a Bachelor’s degree (BGS). He is the head of his family and holds the lands of Jarlsby in the Orkney Isles of Scotland. A sometime Captain in the US Army he served with and commanded units in Korea and Vietnam. Currently, he is a Lieutenant Colonel in the Veteran Corps of Artillery, State of New York (an Historic Military Command est. in 1790) and with the same rank is on the New York State Retired List. The Armiger is the first holder of armorial bearings in the name of Wedvick and as such bears the undifferenced arms as the head of family. The heritor to the arms is currently an heiress, his daughter, Jessica Fairlamb Wedvick.

Conferral: S. A. R. Don Carlos de Borbón-Dos Sicilias y de Borbón-Parma, Duque de Calabria, Conde de Caserta, Infante de España and first cousin to the King of Spain, conferred the Honour of Knighthood upon the armiger as a Knight Jure Sanguinis of the Sacred and Military Constantinian Order of St. George, on 22 May 2009, this event being recorded in Book 2, Folio 160, under Number 1267 of the Constantinian archives.
