The field, per pale erminois and pean was chosen, both being furs. The armiger has spent his life in sporting pursuits; hunting, trapping, and fishing. As a landowner and steward of the land, managing the resources, including game, is of great interest to the armiger.
Erminois and Pean were also chosen as they involve the tinctures of or and sable, prominent colors in Campbell arms. The armiger is a member of the Clan Campbell Society of North America and a descendent of numerous Campbells.
The fess azure wavy is symbolic of the creek that runs through the valley and land of the armiger and for which the valley is named. It is in this creek that the armiger often fishes and traps.
The beaver symbolizes the armiger’s land and work on the land. Beaver frequent the valley and creek and are often a nuisance to other landowners as well as the Department of Natural Resources. Many local landowners seek out the armiger’s assistance in removing the beaver and helping manage the creek, the trout population and their land. Additionally, the beaver symbolizes the historic fur trade. This is one of the armiger’s foci in his history MA. He has lectured around the U.S. and Canada on this topic.
