Dear Guye, Although I am far from the best person to answer these questions, I will give them a shot. Has the Lord Lyon rendered a final verdict on the Baroness of Lag case? Not yet. Also, I had a good friend whom I trust mention that arms granted by the Lord Lyon qualify as an untitled nobility or ...

Very nice, John. I am sure what you say is true about the computer image not doing justice to the artwork. My Scottish patent is that way--the paint looks almost luminous in real life. There is much to like about your painting. I like the more exaggerated waves sitting below the ship and on the helm...

Congratulations to John and Martin! Well-deserved honours. I have a few questions, if they are not amiss. First, does the category of "jure sanguinis" require any nobiliary or heraldic proofs in this order for UK subjects? I'm not immediately aware if this is equivalent to "grace" in the SMOM or to ...

Boxell entries

I'm not sure if this is the right category for this post. If not, feel free to move it. I note the new entry for Clive A. Boxell after receiving a Scottish grant. However, the armiger has a prior grant from the COA, also entered in the Register. I wonder if the armiger would care to tell the story? ...

In the case I'm talking about, you have 9 eldest sons, then a 2nd son, 3 more eldest or eldest surviving sons, another 2nd son, and then again to the eldest son. So within those 15 generations, there are two second sons. I have trouble with the short charts figuring out what automatic cadence mark ...

Re: Scottish Cadence Marking

I have always seen the cadence chart used in Scotland. I was recently told that the Lord Lyon also has other ways of showing cadence. What does he use as a guide? 2. By looking at the chart, how does one decide a cadence if there are a large number of generations? ie: 2nd son of the 10th eldest son...
