MottoNON SINE CAUSA (Not without a cause)
These arms were painted for Mr Denis and Mrs Ruth Drury. Drury arms go back to the 15th century and were used by the Suffolk family of that name. In the 17th century, Edward Drury, of the Irish branch of the family, had the arms confirmed and quartered with those of his wife, an heraldic co-heiress (the arms of Maule). These arms were again confirmed in this century to Admiral Sir Charles Drury who added the anchor. As Mrs Drury is an heraldic heiress, Sir Colin Cole, after consulting Norroy and Ulster and Lion Kings of Arms, confirmed these arms with the addition of the escutcheon of pretence.
