The arms are those of Gore impaling Connolly for Sir Ralph Gore, 6th Baronet, later Earl of Ross of Manor Gore, co. Donegal, and his first wife Katherine, daughter of Rt. Hon. William Connolly of Castletown, whom he married in 1754. She died in 1771, and he subsequently married Alice, daughter of Nathaniel Clements. He distinguished himself as a captain at the battle of Lafeldt in 1747, became M.P. for Donegal, created Baron Gore in 1764, Viscount Belleisle in 1768, and Earl of Ross in 1772. Born in 1725, he died in 1802 when the peerage expired and the baronetcy devolved upon his nephew Sir Ralph Gore, 7th Baronet.

The stag crest and coronet are those of Sir Thomas Roe, Lord Roe of the borough of Derby, created in 1917. Sir Thomas was born in 1832 at Derby, entered his father's firm Messrs Roe & Son., Ltd., was elected a member of Derby Corporation in 1858, and knighted in 1894. He married Emily, daughter of Mathew Kirtley, and died in 1923.
