Re: Hamilton Vs Lyon

This strikes me as a useful public position for Dr Morrow's to take. It avoids any significant issue re: the ambiguous language in the Act, and narrows the issue to whether or not (and if so, how) the LP PR matriculation is worded.

Re: Jack Wayne Carter No.0510

While the arms were grants or certfied etc. in Spain, the good Doctor IIRC is an American, where supporters and barred helmets are generally frowned on, as in any English-speaking country, they are seen generally seen as indicators of noblesse, and therefore inconsistent with American norms. I'm not...

Re: Herbert Leo Buffenbarger No.0511

Nice arms! They are based on the assumed arms of John Buffenbarger, a relative, which are red and white rather than blue and white, John registered his with the International Society of Commoners Heraldry (a Heraldry forum on Facebook). IIRC John's crest was different.

Re: Husain Hanif Roussel No.0508

Nice design & interesting family history!

Minor nit-pick - the bull in the crest is drawn in profile with the head guardant, but the blazon doesn't reflect that.

Re: Matthew Pajares Yngson No.0505

An interesting, if busy, design.

The flag of Dominica - mostly black, yellow, and green - doesn't have the black & green adjacent to each other. Curious why the arms don't have the yellow between the black & green, similar to the white between the red & blue on the dexter side.

Re: My new heraldic artwork

But which of the two ancient Dock arms? ;) Plausible arguments could be made for (or against) either choice, with your own arms in a canton - easy with Dock St, but would obscure most of the demi-ragle of Dock Jr. or for (or against) quartering the two Dock arms with your own arms as an inescutcheon...

Re: My new heraldic artwork

Quartering old & new is one approach - in this case, maybe 1&4 Nelson (since that's your branch's legal surname in America), 2 Dock, 3 the other Dock? Or quarterly of enough to include thebmaternsl arms of your Docks. And for motto, below the shield maybe "What's Up, Docks?" And above the crest of a...

Re: My new heraldic artwork

Seb - how long ago did you assume your current arms?
And have them certified by the Spanish Cronist?
And then matriculated by Lyon? Etc.

Why not just add them to an expanded version of your Swedish armorisl pedigree?
