Continuing our survey of the heraldry in Historic Jamestowne, the site of the original colony in Virginia, we come to a large memorial plaque placed in a brick enclosure. The plaque itself, showing a scene of a priest administering communion to an outdoor congregation of worshippers, was erected, as it says, “To the glory of God and in memory of Robert Hunt, Presbyter.”
There are two coats of arms on the Hunt Shrine. The one on the lower left of the panel is of the Royal Arms of Great Britain; the one on the lower right is the arms of the United States. The latter is hatched to show the colors.
Happy New Year!
