Dear Ian,
Your arms are those of the Earls of Caithness although the ships (one of
Orkney, the other of
Caithness) seem to have changed quarters unless I am looking at a mirror
image. The lions
are those of Nithsdale and Galloway. The crest, which shows a "cock", and
the motto of
of "Commit Thy Work to God" are those of the Earls of Caithness. The
"cock" is also the
emblem of a Captain General of the Knights Templar.
Each Earl's arms would be different in some slight respect.
Best wishes
