Design rationale

Red is the color traditionally associated with theology, and gold the color associated with the social sciences, the chosen professions of the armiger. The color Or also makes a canting reference to the armiger’s mother’s maiden name “Dory” (d’oré, “of gold”). The chevronels braced represent the three countries in the family’s history: Ireland, Germany and the United States. Chevronels also appear in the arms of the town of Rockenberg in Germany, the hometown of the armiger’s maternal family. The escallops represent baptism, pilgrimage and a love of the sea (the armiger’s father was in the US Navy for over thirty years). The crest coronet is adapted from the arms of Munster in Ireland, the home province of the armiger’s paternal family. The crest refers to a long-time family love of dogs. The processional cross refers to the family’s dedication to a life of faith, as well as members of the Powers family who were bishops of Waterford in Ireland and Salisbury in England. The motto is translated into English as “Do not submit to the yoke of slavery,” and comes from Galatians 5:1.
