Q: I’ve noticed the description for Peter’s coat of arms looks suspiciously like your own at howardparsons.info. Isn’t this a bit self-serving?
A: The chapter where this occurs mentioned only Peter’s crest. My editor wanted a bit more descriptive language. This left me with a bit of a dilemma. I could always devise fictitious MacPherson arms for Peter and hope that I was not trespassing upon the armorial rights of my cousins or indeed, any other armiger. My other choice was to use my own arms as a stand-in for Peter’s & try to convince readers that Peter is in no way an extension of myself.
How successful I’ll be, remains to be seen.
