Those who bear the name may wish to claim the following:
Arms: Azure three quartrefoils
chevron wise between as many doves d'or.
Crest: The trunk of a tree
eradicated lesswise and sprouting to the dexter
proper, surmounted by a dove volant, holding in the beak a sprig of olive
also proper and gorged with a collar gemel d'or.
Motto: Virture mine honour
"It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom -- for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself."
