The Arms of Tracy Edward Tucker

The armiger was born in El Paso, Texas, USA and descends from the Tuckers of the Charles City County area of Virginia who migrated to North Carolina. He is a clan genealogist of Éile O'Carroll and Clan Cián, the Irish clan headed by the O'Carroll/Carroll family. He is a Member of the Genealogical Society of Ireland, a member of Clergy and a participant in the Tucker Surname Project at Family Tree DNA. He holds both Associate and Bachelor level college degrees.

The escutcheon is divided per chevron Sable and Argent, and on the chevron appear three trefoils Vert; these are intended to represent the many Irish lines in the armiger’s ancestry (O’Carroll, Purcell, Coleman, Malone, Magill, McCarty, Adams, and others).

The two lions Argent and the sword Or are representative of the heraldic charges of The O’Carroll, Ard Tiarna (High Prince) of Eile O’Carroll and Clan Cian, and Chief of the Name who has honoured the armiger by giving permission for the charges to be used on his own heraldic achievement acknowledging a familial relationship to him, and to the O’Carroll family, and to acknowledge the armiger’s service to Clan Cian.

The chevron itself is Argent, and the base of the escutcheon is Azure with a seahorse Argent. These elements are found on many of the Tucker arms as well as variants such as O’Tuachair (which originated in the Ely-O’Carroll region of Mid-Ireland), Tooker and others.

The crest is a variation of the crest found on some Tucker arms. In those cases, the arm is typically straight and holding an arrow proper. The armiger chose a more peaceful posture and replaced the arrow with a Celtic long cross to represent his being a member of the Clergy, and his other Celtic family lines (Johnstone, MacBean, Pugh, Murray, and others).

The bordure Argent is a feature to add uniqueness. It is the same metal colour as most Tucker arms, and most O’Carroll/Carroll arms, however bordures are not common in those designs, thus the uniqueness.

The mottos above the Crest reads: Cumimhnigh O Tuathchair (Irish Gaelic for remember O’Tuachair) and below the escutcheon Gloria Deo (Latin for Glory to God).
