The pattern of the shield is allusive to the name of the bearer. Waglande is Old English for ‘shaking ground’ and derives from the terrain near the small hamlet in Devon from which it is thought the name derives. The lion is taken from the arms of the Meager family. It grasps a scroll alluding to the grantee’s profession as a solicitor. Again, the wagtail in the crest is punning, reflecting the nickname borne by male members of the Wagland family over the years.
