who wish to use the pictured arms in any particular sense must petition
for a Grant of Arms and they can trace their ancestry back to a
direct or, in some cases collateral, ancestor -- a "cadet matriculation"
showing their place with the family. Forms of Petition and sample
proof-sheets relative to such application can be supplied if required.
a grant, or matriculation, of arms is successfully obtained, an
illuminated parchment, narrating the pedigree as proved, is supplied
to the Petitioner, and a duplicate is recorded in the Public Register
of All Arms and Bearings in Scotland and/or the Public Register
of Genealogies and Birthbrieves.
for such a Confirmation, by Letters Patent or Matriculation, from
the Lord Lyon King of Arms is the only way to obtain a genune coat
no such thing as a "Clan coat of arms". The arms are those
of the Chief, and clansmen have only the privilege of wearing the
strap-and-buckle crested badge to show they are such Chief's clansmen.
