Brief Clan History

Settled by Scottish colonists in 1621. Nova Scotia or New Scotland, is the Canadian maritime province renowned for its fertile valley and rich uplands.

The vibrant tartan has a truly aristocratic background, since it was the Scots monarch James VI who in 1624 created the hereditary baronage of Nova Scotia.

The arms were originally granted in 1625 by King Charles I as part of a Scottish settlement attempt in Nova Scotia led by Sir William Alexander. The arms of Nova Scotia were in use until the mid 19th century.

The old arms having been overlooked by Confederation in 1867, a new coat of arms was prepared the following year. This had a salmon on a blue band between three thistles, on a gold field.

When the old coat of arms was rediscovered, pressure to restore it grew, and it was re assumed in 1929, with the newer coat being abandoned.

The original coat of arms was augmented with a compartment upon the issue of the new Warrant in 1929.

The 1867-1929 shield may be blazoned Or, on a fess wavy azure a salmon between three thistles slipped and leaved proper.
