The arms of William Aiken of Providence, Rhode Island.
William Aiken came to the United States in 1799 from London, England. The shield is emblazoned below:
The Coat of Arms Blazoned: Gules, a cross crosslet or, cantoned with four bezants.
Crested: A fountain throwing up water propper.
Motto: [Not Recorded]
The arms were most likely awarded in England by the College of Arms of Great Britain.
As cited in the 1904 Edition of Crozier’s General Armory; William Armstrong Crozier, Fox Duffield & Company, New York.
The coat of arms above is a very low resolution example used for illustration of the basic design of the arms. If you need a bigger and prettier version of this coat of arms or that of one of your ancestors, please contact me. Just leave a comment stating what you need and I’ll send you an email.
