Coat of Arms

Family coat-of-arms

Although “family” coats-of-arms have no heraldic status (authentic coats-of-arms having been granted to individuals and passed down only to heirs), Burke’s General Armory (3rd ed. 1851, p. 616, 4th ed. 1884) listed the coat-of-arms for Loban as:  “Gules, a lion passant or, on a canton argent a key paleways sable.  Crest— a dexter arm in armor embowed, holding a tilting-spear proper.”  This is correctly shown in the following painting.
