The Lord Lyon, Edinburgh, has signed Letters Patent granting arms to the Davidsons of New England Association, which was formed in Australia in 1984 by descendants of William Davidson. William was born in Crail, Fife in 1807.
He emigrated to Australia and died in 1878 at Mihi Creek Station, Uralla, located in the northern part of the State of New South Wales, known as ‘New England’.
The design of the arms follows the name Davidson, with distinctive pheons (arrowheads); a buck is shown on the central fess, together with a New England Waratah (Telopea Aspera), which is only found in the eastern reaches of the New England Tableland. The arms were painted by Annette Reed.
