The Birtwhistle Coats of Arms as depicted on the Silver Cup presented by the ‘’Gatehouse Volunteers’ to Alexander Birtwhistle in May 1802


Note: this appears to be another variant of the several family coats of arms, crests and mottos which currently exist. It is the earliest version yet found carrying the “Dolphin naiant” together with the motto “Serenus in Arduis” (“Calm in Adversity”)
