Halliday Heraldry

This is the earliest representation of the Halliday arms recorded in Scotland. They are depicted in a document held in the Court of the Lord Lyon in Edinburgh and originally were in a manuscript known as Workman's MS. This is believed to have been compiled c. 1565.

It shows the saltire of Scotland or St Andrew's Cross,the crescent and sword. Variations of this theme were matriculated by Hallidays in the following centuries.Unfortunately no name is given to who owned these arms.
