The Arms of James Russell Alger III

The Coat of Arms of James Russell Alger III alludes to the present generation’s involvement in politics (encapsulated in the crest by the antique crown crest from which rises a stag’s head Proper).

The colour of the eagle’s coronet is included to represent the historical tradition of the Alger family’s pursuit of justice most obviously by James Russell Alger Jr whom served in the Justice Department of the United States for the majority of his life. Familial involvement with Freemasonry is represented by Or (gold), representing generosity and elevation of the mind. Familial history with the military is represented by Gules (red). Argent (white or silver) is included to represent peace and sincerity.

The eagle, which is displayed Sable legged and beaked Gules antiquely crowned Purpure and holding in each claw a sword point upwards proper, represents the duality of British and American ancestry and the constant preparedness for conflict to defend either. The family moved their home to colonial America represented by the embattlement of the chief. The trait of fiercely defending ones family is represented by the inclusion of two bears' heads erased and respecting each other .

The marriage of James Russell Alger III to Dawn Michelle Johnston is represented by the chief Gules and the inclusion of one cushions Or.


The family motto translates To the honour of our ancestors, In defence of justice.
