The crest is that of Jejeebhoy, almost certainly for Sir Jamsetjee Jejeebhoy, 1st Bt. (1783-1859). Jejeebhoy was created a knight in 1842 and a baronet in 1858. He was the first British subject in India to have had either title conferred on them. His great wealth was derived from the mercantile trading company he created. He was one of the greatest philanthropists of his age.
Sir Jamsetjee Jejeebhoy, 1st Bt. (1783-1859).
