The Armorial, Crest and Motto are those of the Coutts family impaling those of Starkey. The Armorial bearings undoubtedly commemorate the marriage of Thomas Coutts and Elizabeth Starkey. Thomas was the fourth son of John Coutts, a Scottish banker and merchant, who became Lord Provost of Edinburgh in 1742. Two of his sons, James and Thomas, founded the eponymous banking house of Coutts and Company. The bank's headquarters is still located on The Strand in London. Thomas became the sole head of the bank upon James's death in 1778.
