The armiger, who is a
Freemason, chose the arms to represent the search for light and
wisdom with the shield itself a protection from evil enforced by the
armigerís belief in goodness. The crest represents both the past and
the present but also the desire to pursue a way of life without
having to turn back.
The motto, a
fructibus eorum cognoscetis eos, is found in Mathew 7:16 and
translates to by their fruits ye shall know them. This represents a
wish, by the armiger, to be judged by his own example.
