Ackerson and Akers lineages.

Sable, a Bend between three Acorns Or.

Illuminated and freehand finishing.

The coat of arms of Ackerson and Akers lineages emblazoned by me and extracted from [Burke, B.; 1989].

Unless the blazon specifies another layout, when a bend is between three charges, this charges are ordered, two in the chief and one in the base, as the three acorns do in this case.

[Rietstap, J. B.; 1861] escribe el blasón de «Ackers ou Akers» como «de sable, à une bande d'or, acc. de trois glands du mesme».

Académie internationale d'héraldique, AIH, «Vocabulaire-Atlas Héraldique en six Langues: Francais - English - Deutsch - Español - Italiano - Nederlandsch», by Gaston Stalins, Le Baron Stalins, with the collaboration of René Le Juge De Segrais, Ottfried Neubecker, Martin de Riquer y Morera, Giacomo Carlo Bascapé, and Mario Gorino-Causa, 119 pages, 530 black and white heraldic pictures, Société du Grand Armorial de France, 179 Boulevard Haussmann, París, 1952.

This book begins with the following sentence: «Heraldique - science et art - qui prit naissance en France vers la moitié du XIIe siècle, s'est propagée très rapidement dans les principaux pays européens».

The number of terms and words of the heraldry by languages is as follows:

  • French language: 523 heraldic terms.
  • Dutch language: 521 heraldic terms.
  • German language: 519 heraldic terms.
  • Spanish language: 511 heraldic terms.
  • Italian language: 506 heraldic terms.
  • English language: 502 heraldic terms.

The names of the authors and collaborators have been checked with [Académie internationale d'héraldique; 1999].

Its 530 heraldic illustrations correspond, according to my calculations to 509 drawings, numbered from 1 to 530. Some images contain several numbers, for example, the image that shows a coat of arms with its mantling, number 528, and its supporters, number 529, a griffin and a lion rampant, it is the same illustation, but with 2 numbers.

A Castle Or, triple towered, embattled, port and windows Azure, and masoned Sable.

Un castillo de oro, aclarado de azur, mazonado de sable.

Some of the characteristics of the Castilian castle are specified in the coat of arms in English, for example, «triple towered, embattled», but they are omitted in the Spanish blason, because the Spanish blason considered that the Castilian castle can not be otherwise. These local characteristics, that decades ago were not necessary to specify, could begin to have to be in this global and interconnected heraldic world. [Valero de Bernabé, L.; 2009a] describe the different characteristics between the Castilian, the French, and the English castles among others.

Blazon keywords: Castle, Or, Port and windows, Azure, Masoned and Sable.
