Henry Pelham Burn – Grant of Arms 1906

The 1906 Grant of Arms from the Lyon Court to Major Henry Pelham Burn is on sale at eBay with a “Buy it Now” price of £1,500.

Burn Grant

The Grant is listed in the Lyon Register as 19/9, 25th October 1906.

Arms: Or a chevron between two spur revels in chief and a hunting horn in base Sable garnished Argent.

Crest: A dexter hand proper holding a hunting horn as in the Arms.

Motto: Ever Ready

Major Burn also has an entry in the 1929 edition of Armorial Families:

Burn-ARFrom the excellent set of photographs supplied by the vendor, diggerlee, it seems that Major Burn had the Grant made to an ancestor – I cannot make out the actual relationship.  Also included within the sale is a bookplate of Charles Maitland Burn who bears the same Arms but with the chevron engrailed and impaled with the Arms of Russel.  They are listed in the Lyon Register as 19/10, 31st October 1906.
