Arms granted to Archibald Rae Gaylor, Public Register of All Arms and Bearings in Scotland, Volume 61, page 90, 16 Nov 1978. The current armiger was born in 1938 and inherited the arms upon the death of his father in 1996. Having received a BScEng. from the Univ. of East Africa and as a sometime Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, he became a land surveyor in Kenya, Tanganyika, Bahrain, Trinidad and the Cayman Islands and from 1994 to retirement a cartographer in the United Kingdom. As a heraldist since c. 1954, and especially as a friend, he has been responsible for all the art produced for this armorial. It is to be noted, his heir, William Hamilton bears the arms with an Azure label, his daughter Katherine Amphlett with a crescent Gules in chief and by his
daughter Elizabeth Ann with a star Gules in chief. The daughters arms have been matriculated, Lyon Register, Volume 66, pages 5 and 6, 1981.

The artwork is a rendering by John Hamilton Gaylor.
