It is important to know that coats of arms are awarded to individuals, not to families per se. This is the reason there are no family crests which broadly apply to all members of a given family. This coat of arms would apply only to direct male-line descendants of Nicholas Barber. This is not to say though that it isn’t nice to discover the coat of arms of all your ancestors and heraldry is great as a form of family-oriented folk art.

Notes about the Barber arms
The charges (symbols) used on a coat of arms usually have links to the name of the bearer or the place they were from, often in the form of puns (called canting in heraldry): John Ashman, would likely have an Ash tree on his arms, Robert Bakerridge might have a loaf of bread on top mountain, while Joshua Talbot, would likely have a type of dog, called a Talbot, figuring prominently on either the shield or crest. Other times, the charge might have to do with some accomplishment of the armiger, perhaps the man who lent the King a horse may be granted arms with a mighty steed. Sometimes less specific symbolism was used. Over the years, some generic meanings for many charges were developed which could add some flair to describing the merit of less illustrious charges.
The Chevronel found in these arms can represent military merit, while a Fleur-de-lis traditionally represents purity, whiteness of soul, and the Virgin Mary.
