Most heraldic traditions grant arms and other regalia only to a specific individual, rather than a family. Coats of arms are considered legal property and can only be used undifferentiated by one person at any given time. Other descendants of the original bearer could bear the ancestral arms only with some change, usually a different color or the addition of a distinguishing charge. One notable, and important exception to this would be in Ireland, where arms can be granted and used, unaltered, by verifiable and registered direct descendants and sometimes even verifiable septs. In all cases this needs would then need to be approved and registered by the appropriate regulatory authority.

Jameson House Arms Shield - Rhodes University - The coat of arms of Jameson House has as its principal charge a silver mace on a red field.

The Thistle recalls that Jameson was born in Scotland; and it is balanced by a Fleur-de-lys taken from the coat of arms of the Cape of Good Hope
