Arms of the Coles

The following is an excerpt from "The Descendants Of James Cole Of Plymouth, 1633"  byErnest Byron Cole (The Grafton Press, 1908):

The Coles of ENgland were granted some thirty Coats of Arms or Crests. While they differed greatly in their make-up, they all bore the same motto, namely:

Deum Cole, Regnum Serva

("Honor God, Serve the King")

The arms reproduced here shows a bull passant. The bull is a bearing emblematic of valor and magnanimity.
