The armiger is a general contractor and former US Army Captain living outside of Austin, Texas.

Design rationale

The five plates form a cross, evidencing Mr. Transom's Catholic Christian faith. Each one is further charged with a St. George's cross, a reference to his name, and his English heritage. Each white roundel charged with a cross is also visually reminiscent of the Eucharistic host. The number of the roundels, five, represents the armiger, his wife, and three children. Additionally, the red and white of each roundel can be seen as representing Mrs. Transom's Austrian heritage, and the cross thereupon provides a reference to her Krist ancestors.The white and blue color and the teardrops of the field remind one of the Blessed Mother's mantle and the many tears she shed at the Passion of her Son. Taken together, the red, white, and blue can represent the State of Texas and the United States of America, which Mr. Transom served as a Captain in the U.S. Army.The crest is full of Texan symbolism. The armiger has resided the last three decades in the town of Round Rock; the single white star and bluebonnets are well-known Texas symbols.
