Heraldic arms on the tower, Dunraven Park walled garden.
Heraldic arms on the tower, Dunraven Park walled garden.
Valentine-Richard Wyndham was created "Earl of Dunraven and Mount Earl," on the 22nd January, 1822 and was descended from the O'Quin family. As far as I can ascertain the arms of the O'Quin (Quinn) family are described as:
'Quarterly, 1st and 4th, gu. a hand couped below the wrist grasping a sword ppr., on each side a serpent, tail nowed, the heads respecting each other or., in chief two crescents ar., for O'QUIN, of Munster; 2nd and 3rd, az. a chev. betw. three lions' heads erased or. with a mullet for diff., for WYNDHAM. Crests: 1st, QUINN: A wolf's head erased ar.; 2nd, WYNDHAM: A lion's head erased within a fetterlock and chain or. Supporters: Two ravens with wings elevated ppr. collared and chained or.'
The arms on the tower differ somewhat from this I think so is perhaps a derivation from the original.
The motto, 'Quae sursum volo videre' is variously translated as 'I wish to see what is beyond' or '.....heavenly things'.
