Arms as interpreted by Lee Lumbley


Arms:  Argent on a Fess engrailed Gules between three Popinjays proper gorged Gules three Bezants.

Crest:  Out of a Ducal Coronet Or a Griffin rampant coward per Fess Argent and Azure langued Gules grasping in the sinister fore-claw the base limb and in the dexter fore-claw the sinister limb of a jewelled Cross of Saint Cuthbert composed of garnets set in gold all proper.

Motto:  Deus et meum ius (God and my right)

Badge:  A white Rose seeded and barbed all proper crowned with a ducal Coronet Or.

Flag:  A banner of the arms

Design Rationale:

Arms:  The Popinjays appear in the blazon of at least three other Lumley families. The Fess engrailed represent the crossing of the Atlantic. The three Bezants refer to the origin of the Arms, my father, my brother, and me.

Crest:  The Griffin is half-Lion (English heritage) and half Eagle (American heritage) in the colors of the Union Jack, the American Flag, and the Texas Flag. The Cross of St Cuthbert symbolize the origins of the family name--Co Durham in England. The coronet is borrowed from Crest of George Washington, who was the commanding general from the state of my ancestor who served under him during the American War for Independence.

Motto:  "Deus et meum ius" literally translates as "God and my right" but here the civil right addressed is to bear Arms. It is a pun on the family's British origins.
