The Armorial, Crest and Motto are those of the ancient and once eminent family of Dumaresq, of the Island of Jersey, specifically for the Reverend Daniel Dumaresq FRS ( 1712-1805), an eminent educational consultant to Russian and Polish monarchs. Dumaresq came from Trinity, Jersey, in the Channel Islands. He attended Abington School and in 1730 entered Pembroke College and was a Fellow of Exeter College, Oxford. He became curate at Merton on Otmoor, Oxfordshire (1744), then Chaplain at the English Factory at St. Petersburg (1746-62). During this time he was elected to the St. Petersburg Academy of Sciences, became fluent in Russian and was Chaplain to Sir Charles Hanbury, British Ambassador to St. Petersburg. In his capacity as Chaplain to the Ambassador he employed a secretary, Stanislaus Poniatowski, who later became King of Poland. Upon his return to England, he took the Rectory of Yeovilton. From there he was called upon to return to Russian and Poland to advise Catherine the Great of Russia and Stanislaus II, King of Poland, on educational matters. He was a Fellow of the Royal Society and died unmarried in Bath in 1805. A painting of Dumaresq is shown.
