       Springwood Park bookplates

    1. Sir George Brisbane Douglas, fifth Baronet, was born in
    1856. He became a member of our Club in 1876. More than
    this I need not say. He uses a small bookplate consisting of
    the Douglas and Scott crests — (1) a cubit arm erect grasping a
    broken tilting spear, all p.p.r., for Douglas. (2) A lion's head
    erased, holding in its mouth a thistle, for Scott. Over both, on a
    ribbon, the motto " doe or die." Beneath the crests, on an
    escutcheon, the " Red Hand of Ulster," and below all, " Sir
    George Douglas, Bt."

    2. Hannah Charlotte, Lady Scott Douglas of Springwood
    Park, used a quartered coat, with supporters, and ribbon scrolls,
    by Lizars. The blazon is I. and IV., Argent, a human heart
    gules, imperially crowned or, on a chief azure three mullets
    argent, the whole within a bordure nebuly of the fourth
    (Douglas). II. and III., Or, on a bend azure an estoile between
    two crescents of the field ; in the centre chief a sword erect
    p.p.r., and on a canton argent ionr fleurs de lis (Scott). On a
    surtout the arms of Scott, without the canton, and in the centre
    chief the badge of Ulster. Supporters, on either side a pegasus.
    Lady Scott Douglas afterwards married William Scott Kerr of
    Chatto and Sunlaws.
