It is a variation of the Scottish Archibald "coat of arms".

Ditat servata fides.

Your original post had me looking at the early 17th century,as I surmised it was associated with the Prayer Book Rebellion.

Edit. Oops,early 16th century.

Hi DJA,

That is spooky.

I am currently researching a book about the 1549 Prayer Book Rebellion.

Regards,

Simon

Hi All,

I finally identified this symbol.

It was in Fairbairns Book of Family Crests [2 vols].

Name:  ARCHIBALD CREST.JPG

It is the crest of the Archibald family, who were movers and shakers in Canada.

Palma non sine pulvere is the family motto. No reward without effort.

Regards,

Simon

yeah but what the hell is it? a palm, frond, quill, plume?
does the star mean royalty? and is the hairy thing at the bottom represent an island?

Coat of arms can be pretty wacky. My brother in law is Scottish and their coat of arms is a pelican ripping its own flesh off to feed its chicks. the motto is something like "from pain comes strength". weird.

Hi Abby,

It's a crest rather than a coat of arms, but how one arrives at 'No reward without effort' from a palm tree, a few rocks and what looks like a starfish is beyond me.

Good luck if you're thinking of trying to work it out.

Regards,

Simon
