The latest newsletter of the White Lion Society contained the College of Arm’s Schedule of Fees for 2017.  I thought I would reproduced them here along with those from the Lyon Court.

It must be remembered, when comparing the two, that the Lyon Court is department of the Scottish Government and as such the buildings and salaries are paid for by the taxpayer.  That is not the case for the College of Arms which is effectively self supporting.

At the weekend we made use of our National Trust membership for a quick visit to Mottisfont Priory.  The one bit of heraldry that caught my eye were the gates:

Burke’s General Armory gives the Arms of the Mill Baronets, who once owned the estate, as:

Arms: Per fesse Argent and Sable a pale counterchanged three bears salient of the second muzzled and chained Or.

Crest: A demi bear salient Sable muzzled and chained Or.

Motto: Aides Dieu
