Bernard Coat of Arms Meaning

There are many different symbols in the Bernard coat of arms, but the two most common symbols throughout are the bear and estoile (or mullet or star).

The bear is more common in the arms of continental Europe than in British arms (possibly due to the lack of bears native to that country!), although the county of Warwickshire famously includes a bear in its arms.Wade tells us that the bear is the “emblem of ferocity and the protection of kindred”.

There were of course many widely recognised symbols that existed long before the advent of heraldry and it should be no surprise that some of these were adopted as charge in coats of arms. The estoile is a typical example, reflecting the stars in the sky and represented with six wavy points, often with a little shading to give it some depth. The ancient writer Guillim assigns these symbols as the emblems of God’s goodness”.

Another source states it derives from the word beorn (heart), meaning one of stout heart. Another source claims the root word bern means bear and hard means hardy, brave, or strong.

A one Walter filius Bernardi  was recorded in the Pipe Tolls, or Sheriffs’ Annual Accounts for the Counties of Cumberland, Westmoreland, and Durham in 1214 AD.

One source claims the family was first found in Provence, a town on the lower Rhone river in southeastern France, where they held seat in medieval times. In Germany, they were first located in the state of Prussia. The name also was popular in Ireland where Strongbow brought the Norman naming convention. In England, it was fist found in Westmorland, where the family received propery from William the Conqueror for their assistance furnished to him at the famous Battle of Hastings in 1066 AD.

King Henry II, who invaded Ireland in 1172 AD, took Robert Fitz Bernard with him, and gave him dominion over Wexford and Waterford counties.

The famous genealogist Bernard Burke’s book “The Landed Gentry” discusses one branch of this family: Bernard of Castle Bernard. It begins with a mention of Thomas Bernard, Esq. of Castle Bernard in King’s County, who was born in 1816 and succeeded his father if May of 1834. He was Lord-Lieutenant and Custos Rotulorum of that counry, as well as High Sheriff in 1837. He was a Lieutenant-Colonel in the arm in the late 12th Lancers and Colonel of King’s County Militia. Burke traces the lineage back to Thomas Bernard, Esq. of Oldtown and Clonmulsh county in Carlow, and was High Sheriff in 1708. He married Deborah, sister of John Sheppard of Derrvowles and widow of Richard Humphreys. He left three sons: Charles (High Sheriff of Carlow in 1718), Franks (of Castletown), and Joseph.

Elvin’s Family Mottoes states the following regarding the Bear and forebear motto: “This motto in the case of the families of Bear and Bernard has an evident allusion to the name and crest, which is a bear’s head, but was assumed by the family of Bircham under the following circumstances:—

An ancestor of this family purchased a brewery at Reepham, in 1756, and shortly after settling there was invited to dine with the Recto, the Rev. St. John Priest, when Mr. Bircham asked him to suggest a motto for his adoption. A friend at the table submitted that it would be well to decide at once upon “Bear for ever” to which Mr. Priest rejoined, “If our friend Bircham would do well to adopt your suggestion, I am decidedly of opinion that he would do far better to let it be “Bear and Forebearand it was determined that this latter should be the motto, which has continued to be used by his family.”
