    The crest is that of Bogle, presumably for Archibald Bogle who married Janet Bogle, his cousin, in 1825. The arms were first granted in Edinburgh to Andrew Bogle in 1806, presumably the brother of George Bogle (c.1761-1813) of Effingham, Surrey and Burlington Street, Middlesex. The family at some point arrived Glasgow where they were successful merchants with extensive interests in Jamaica. (161)
