The original confirmation to James West is in the office of the Ulster King of Arms in Dublin and in 1905 Erskine Eyre West took out a confirmation of these arms to the descendents of Matthew West 1 (1746 - 1806), exactly as they were confirmed to James West and his descendents, James West was the youngest brother of Jacob West II and Matthew West II, all three being sons of Matthew West I.
*Jour de ma vie"
A West, a la Warr and a Pelham took King John of France prisoner at Poitiers in 1356, The West was knighted on the field of battle by the Black Prince and after receiving the honour said to the Prince, "Monseigneur, c'est Ie plus beau jour de ma vie". The West and la Warr families were shortly afterwards united in marriage and "Jour de ma vie" was adopted as the family motto.
The information on which these notes are based came largely from Erskine Eyre West who died in 1950.
These arms are also used by the London and Yorkshire (East Rothernam) branches of the family (vide Burkes Armory).
Based on a letter in the Sunday Times June 23rd 1946 from Major G.Cornwallis-West.
