David Brand Watt 1881 - father David Brand Watt born 11 August 1849 Dunfermline Scotland. Mother Janet.

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XY86-D5H

1891 Census Muiravonside School House Muiravonside Stirlingshire.

David B Watt 41 Born Scotland. School Master.
Janet Watt   37
James Watt 14 Maggie Watt 12 William Watt 10
D Brand Watt 9 Jeanie Watt 8 Nettie Watt 6
John Watt   4 Isabel Watt 1
George Watt 2 months.

David Brand Watt Snr born 11 August 1849 to James Watt and Jane Brand passed away 5 March 1936 - Polmont, Stirlingshire, Scotland  So this would be David Brand Watt I - the son born 1881 was David Brand Watt II - the son David B Watt born 1920 (shown on Canadian Census)  would be David Brand Watt III (passed away in 1997) - possible he had a son David Brand Watt IV born in 1955  ;)

George Cuthill WATT
West Vancouver, British Columbia
Grant of a Crest and Badge
January 25, 1991
Vol. II, p. 72


The Arms are shown in the link below - These Canadian arms are based on a Scottish grant of 1987 to one of Mr. Watt’s first cousins, David Brand Watt III. They feature an oak tree on a green mount, a symbol long associated in Scottish heraldry with people having the surname Watt. In the chief, the book between the wheat sheaves represents Mr. Watt’s grandfather, David Brand Watt I, a schoolmaster, who was the son and grandson of James and John Watt, bakers in Dunfermline, Fife. The border differences these arms from those of David Brand Watt III.
