Recorded Arms for Joass

After quite a hiatus, I have now added a single entry armorial for the name Joass to my main Heraldry Online website.

My recent gift of the third edition of George Way of Plean and the late Romilly Squire’s Scottish Clan and Family Encyclopaedia has prompted me to look again at various Names and Arms – time permitting of course.

Matriculation of Arms: Stephen J F Plowman 2017

I have just received my Letters Patent of the Matriculation of my English Arms from the Court of Lord Lyon.  The Arms were originally granted by the College of Arms to my father in May 1994.  I first started the process of recording my Arms for use in Scotland in 2006 but had to put my petition into abeyance for a while.  One house move and a few years later I started it again in September 2016 with Lord Lyon issuing his Interlocutor:

Interlocutor of

the Lord Lyon King of Arms

in the Petition of

STEPHEN JAMES FITZHERBERT PLOWMAN

of date 4 September 2006

Edinburgh, 28 September 2016; The Lord Lyon King of Arms, having considered the foregoing Petition, GRANTS WARRANT to the Lyon Clerk to matriculate in the Public Register of All Arms and Bearings in Scotland in the name of the Petitioner the following Ensigns Armorial, videlicet:- Argent, three anchors Sable each entwined by a serpent Gules on a chief enarched nebuly Azure three martlets rising Or.

Plowman, Stephen James Fitzherbert Vol 92 Fol 19 Arms

Plowman, Stephen James Fitzherbert Vol 92 Fol 19 Small2

Matriculated this 7th day of August 2017. Extracted furth of the 19th page of the 92nd Volume of the Public Register of All Arms and Bearings in Scotland this 8th day of August 2017.

I was particularly impressed that the Lyon Court not only supplied a digital scan of my LP – thus saving me trying to photograph it – but also were keen to post details of newly granted or matriculated Arms on social media @LyonCourt.  They also included a leaflet about the Heraldry Society of Scotland.
