I particularly love this crest, it was salvaged from an old antiquarian document that was tattered and old, and pictures a pelican in her piety, wings outstretched protecting her young while feeding them. Three keys are pictured on the shield below with the Latin motto reading "pandeli celestes partas", meaning I WILL PROTECT THESE HEAVENLY GIFTS.
The female pelican was believed to wound her breast with her long, curved bill, drawing blood to feed her young. For this noble act, the bird became a symbol of piety, self-sacrifice, and virtue and symbolizes the duties of a parent or parental love. The keys are symbolic of guardianship and dominion.
