SOURCE - ROBERT WILLIAM ELLISTON (1774-1831)

 
 
Notable Actor: Robert William Elliston, Actor Manager of Drury Lane Theatre.  The entitlement to use Arms is passed down through the Male Heritage:-

NB: Law of Heraldic Arms:
Although the common law courts do not regard coats of arms as either property or as being defensible by action, armorial bearings are a form of property nevertheless, generally described as tesserae gentilitatis or insignia of gentility. Armorial bearings are incorporeal and impartible hereditaments inalienable, and descendable according to the law of arms. Generally speaking (there have been very rare examples of patents in which the arms are granted to descend with some different limitation), this means they are inherited by the issue (male and female) in the male line of the grantee, though they can be inherited as quarterings by the sons of an heraldic heiress, where there is no surviving male heir, provided her issue also have a right to bear arms in their own male line.
