The Arms of Richard B.B. Miller, Baron of Jedburgh Forest

On the shield, the wolves' heads represent the Anglo-Scottish family of Miller. The double-headed eagles represent the armiger's descent in the maternal line from the continental families of d'Alvarez de Asturias, Borcherds and Wiber. The tree trunk in the crest indicates descent from the Borcherds family.

The cornucopia in the crest alludes to the grantee's marriage to Mary Magdalene Bernadotte Miller, Baroness of Jedburgh Forest; in art the Magdalene is often represented pouring ointment from a horn. It is imagined that some of the petals that lie on the ground have fallen from the horn of plenty, whereof the three colours (white pink and blue) are significant to the three children of the family

The baron's ancestors were originally from the Midlothian area near Edinburgh and later settled in the Scottish Borders, near Jedburgh. The baron's great-grandfather was James Wilkie Morris of Kelso. James' daughter, Eleanore Waugh Morris (then aged 18) married the baron's grandfather, William Bernadotte Miller (aged 42) in Margate, Kent. William took his new bride to the Cape of Good Hope, South Africa, where the Millers had settled in 1824. The baron's father was George Bruce Bernadotte Miller, JP, a WWI survivor of the Battle of Dellville Wood. His mother was Sonia Diana d'Alvarez de Asturias Borcherds Wiber.
