Re: Display by one's spouse

As you are residents of the United States, there is nothing to prevent your wife from assuming arms of her own. There may be some who scoff at that since tradition might dictate otherwise, but as Chris said, heraldry is a living, changing science.

Re: Label of 2 and Label of 4

Technically, it was still innovative, since you developed it unaware of its previous use (somewhat similar to not violating a patent if you independently developed the technology unaware it already existed). Be proud that you created something, even if it already existed. :)

Outside an incorporated area, such as a village, town, or city. For example, Mount Vernon (the estate of President George Washington) is not located within an incorporated area of Fairfax County, so is located "out with a burgh."

Re: Arms of various Cities and Counties in Virginia

I went to college in Virginia and could never really make sense out of their whole "independent city" thing. Especially considering the counties usually have one of these cities as their seat. The seat of Augusta County is Staunton, which isn't technically in Augusta County - and the seat of Rockbr...

Re: Arms of various Cities and Counties in Virginia

Staunton is an independent city within the confines of Augusta County. Within the Commonwealth of Virginia, any city, e.g. Staunton or Virginia Beach, is completely fiscally and politically independent of any county, while towns and villages, e.g. Bowling Green or Herndon, rely in part on county ser...
