"Bien Faire et ne Bien Craindre" (Theodore Truax's copy)
|Philip E. Truex
of Escondito, California --
son of the late actor, Earnest--provides information
on a coat-of-arms for the du Trieux family.
Since there are many du Trieux's
there would be no way to establish
a relationship with Sir Dennis du Trieux,
knighted by King George nearly
a century after our line had arrived in America. Phillip says this:
|The Truex coat-of-arms I had made up is the one in the College of arms, London, which was used by Sir Dennis du Trieux, Bart., (knighted by George I in 1716, died 1728). The arms were based chiefly on the version known as Dutry van Haeftln, with elements of du Trieux Brabant. The former employed the motto "Bien faire et ne bien craindre" (Do well and fear nothing)
while Sir Dennis used "Bien faire, c'est bien penser" (To do well is to think well).
The colors of the London version are azure and gold, with the helmet in black.
The little man at the top wears and ermine trimmed suit and "Albainian cap", and carries a stirrup.
