 Heraldry
Heraldry is an ancient and exact science, a straightforward method of identifying individual people and the communities they live and work in.
Heraldry is positively flaunted by the cities of Glasgow and Aberdeen, each exuberantly parading their arms on signs, stationery, street furniture, buildings, badges, banners, bollards, books, buttons, vehicles, insignia, uniforms, furnishing, theatre tickets and even litter bins.
A practical function of heraldry was the identification of friend or foe on the battlefield.

The purpose of this document is to record our family history, genealogy and heraldry, and at the same time to provide some historical context for the lives of our ancestors.
