Welcome to
Gladneys In America
The original paternal grant of arms to the distinguished old family of Gladney, prominent in history for many generations. The arms was granted and recorded in the old College of Arms in London prior to the seventeenth century. It is simple in design because of its antiquity and bears no motto as these had not come into use, and none was added later, as some families did. The eagle was called the "king of birds" and as such was a much-favored charge or blazon on the arms, it was the symbol of great strength, watchfulness and courage.
