Arms granted to a Faulder

There are arms linked to a Faulder name.

However, arms are granted to an individual and his legitimate male heirs – not to a surname. Can we trace the individual to whom they were granted?

The General Armoury* describes Faulder Arms as Ar. three chaplets vert, roses gu. Crest-On a mountain a beacon inflamed all ppr. Translated this reads as Silver, three green garlands, roses red. Crest – On a mountain a beacon inflamed – normal colours. My interpretation of this is on the right.

A similar crest has been found on a book-plate belonging to William Waring Faulder (1851-1893) of Cheshire (whose family traces back to Sebergham in Cumberland).

The current College of Armsopen new window report that this source is full of erroneous and unofficial entries.
