5 star reiew
MCCALLUM COAT OF ARMS: We entrusted Jacob with a family heirloom, our coat of arms that had been hand stitched by Gaelic Scottish Highlanders. Something so special to our family for future generations & he did not disappoint.
What we received back today, was a completed master piece. The care & thoughtfulness that has gone into framing our treasure is evident. We highly recommended this fabulous company to anyone & we will for sure be back. Thank you to you all, what an amazing team of people you are ☺ Jodie Ingham
We were honoured to be tasked with framing this special piece of family heritage for our client. We wanted to create a framed piece that was unique and drew on various elements inside the coat of arms in the framing.
  • Blue and Gold Matting to replica the colours in the design
  • Side by side layout
  • Large ornate gold framing to add nostalgia and a significant boldness.

An Excerpt from the House of Names Website about the McCallum Family

The Early Origins of the McCallum family

The surname McCallum was first found in Argyllshire (Gaelic erra Ghaidheal), the region of western Scotland corresponding roughly with the ancient Kingdom of Dál Riata, in the Strathclyde region of Scotland, now part of the Council Area of Argyll and Bute, where they quickly attained the status of Clan. Their ancient Clan seat was at Poltalloch near Loch Craignish.

The related Clan Calum is said to have been from Ariskeodnish. One of the earliest records of the name was Reginald MacCallum of Corbarron who was made the hereditary constable of Craignish Castle in 1414. Sir Duncan Campbell granted him lands in Craignish and on Loch Avich. This arrangement demonstrates the strong alliance between the MacCallums and the Campbells of Argyll; an arrangement which made them deadly foes of the MacDonalds.

In 1647, Sir Alexander MacDonald killed Zacharie MacCallum, a supporter of the Campbell Chief, in battle at Ederline. In the 17th century, another Zachary Maccallum was bequeathed the Cobarron lands by the last of that branch.

The McCallum Motto

The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: In ardua petit
Motto Translation: He has attempted difficult things.
