In 1550, King Edward VI granted Sir William Strickland of Boynton a coat of arms which included a turkey as its most prominent feature. It was Sir William's son or grandson who filed the application for this coat of arms. The official wording describing the coat of arms is:

Arms -- Gules, a cheveron, or, between three crosses patee, argent ; on a canton, ermine, a buck's head, erased and attired, sable.

Crest -- A turkey-cock in his pride, proper.

Motto -- A la volanté de Dieu
