David Keith RHODES
The three red roses are for my three Lancashire children. The three diamonds are for the three generations of jewellers.
The crest refers to: An oak branch as some ancestors were foresters and a ‘rode’ is a clearing in a forest (a term still used in Germany). A pair of dividers referring to navigation, as I have a pilot’s licence, and spent many hours sailing in my youth. The Jersey lily refers to my parents who lived on that island for some forty years.
The motto is a play on my family name.
The two collarettes suspended are later additions and refer to the Hospitalers
