Robin Orr Blair was born in 1940 and served as Lord Lyon and as Secretary to the Order of the Thistle 2001-2007

Importantly he oversaw the installation of the records of the "Public Register of All Arms and Bearings in Scotland" onto a computer database in a format designed for ease of information extraction at Lyon Office. He was also kind enough to consider and allow us arms and happily allowed the design we submitted unchanged.

He was preceded as Lord Lyon by Sir Malcolm Rognvald Innes of Edingight, KCVO, WS, FSA Scot, Lord Lyon 1981-2001 and was succeeded as Lord Lyon by William David Hamilton Sellar, FSA Scot, FR Hist, Lord Lyon 2008 to date.
