The first mention of the Company's Arms occurs in its Quarter Book dated 26 August 1672, when there was 'Paid for the Coat of Arms 25s'.

The Company's Arms were formally registered at the College of Arms in January 1931. In 1977 the Company petitioned for supporters for their Arms and in 1978, Jubilee Year, were granted silver griffins, similar to those borne earlier unofficially, each now differenced with a collar of basketwork
