Any light to be shed on this 1834 coat of arms?
« on: Wednesday 17 September 14 06:34 BST (UK) »
I found this online as having come up for auction about a decade ago and cannot find a better resolution photo. It's a coat of arms produced for Samuel Dick of the East India Company - the thing is there were two Samuel Dicks at this time, one based in Dublin and one in England. I am hoping to determine, if possible, which Samuel Dick this could have been created for. Is there any way of deciphering anything from it that would provide any clues? Pic is attached and description from the auction catalogue is thus:
Description: BIGLAND, RALPH, GARTER HERALD AND WILLIAM WOODS, CLARENCEUX HERALD
Manuscript grant of arms to Samuel Dick, member of a family prominent in the East India Company, signed by both heralds and illustrated with watercolors of the Dick coat of arms and those of the heralds including a full depiction of the Garter. Vellum document, 22 x 18 inches. Framed. Slight wrinkling of vellum.
London, 31 January 1834
