MottoJAI VALU VAUX ET VAUDRAI

The arms are based on those used by Edward Vawdrey in 1683 (A fess between in chief a lion passant holding a cross crosslet fitchy and in base a plain cross between 4 ermine spots. A white cock for a crest). The present arms are a differenced version of these arms. The cross flory alludes to a probable French connection. The reversed chevron of the crest is a cant on the initial letter of the family surname while the engrailed inner edge together with a pheon used as a badge represents the family's military service in two World Wars.

GrantedGranted July, 1986 (College of Arms) with the limitation extended to include the descendants of his grandfather, John Clough Vaudrey.
