Scottish Grant of Arms 1901 with other documents - Mackay Family

Recently listed on eBay with a buy it now price of US $825.00 Approximately £658.47; a Scottish Grant of Arms 1901 with other documents - Mackay Family.



Described by the seller as "Scottish Grant of Arms 1901 with other documents - Mackay Family.

An interesting collection of documents.  Primary document is the Grant of Arms for George Duncan Mackay, Esquire. A fantastic image with the motto "Manu Forti" or Strong Hand. Comes complete with the original box and the encased wax seal.  In the box were two other documents.  A rather worn birth certificate dating to 1904 and a very interesting large vellum document which looks like an 1849 marriage document of Humphres Manders Goulding and Hannah Houghton. At the bottom is a long list of witnesses which is an interesting way to commemorate the wedding and the guests who attended.  Great group of hand done antique and historically interesting documents."

I have created an album of the other images here: https://bit.ly/3h0bcbH
