The Arms of Robert
                                              Gerhard Braun

Robert Gerhard Braun, U.E, is the only son of Johann Hans Braun [1927-2018], by his wife Renate [1930-2010], dau. of Händler Karl Rojec. Mr Braun is also the natural son of Ronald Herman Thomas Schwieger [1941-2019] by Gwenneth Lucille Treen, U.E. [1940-2022; q.v. registration 0521 (vol. 3)], herself being descendant of Joseph Treen, United Empire Loyalist [1744-1833], sometime Westchester Chasseurs [1777].

The armiger’s Treen forefathers hailed from Land’s End, Cornwall. It is believed that they originated in the nearby village of Treen (also Treryn, Trethyn). The name derives from the Cornish words meaning a ‘fortified settlement’. Fittingly, next to the village of Treen is an Iron-Age promontory hillfort, Treen Dinas, from which the village takes its name.

There are surnames in Cornwall and Wales that are homophonous with Treen and that have arms associated with them, e.g., Sir John Trewyn: Az. a chevron Arg. between three trees eradicated Or [vide Glover’s Ordinary]; and the Manor of Trewyn: Az, a chevron between three oak trees eradicated Or [vide Burke's General Armory]. These arms likely use trees as an English allusion to the surname and suggested the use of trees in these arms.

Accordingly, this crest is also a tree. In Mr Braun's case, the tree in his crest is an apple tree. This refers to the crest of the City of Kelowna (i.e., in front of an apple tree fructed a crosscut saw proper), in which city the armiger has resided for over 50 years. A Loyalist military coronet surrounds the crest, in recognition of Joseph’s service with the élite Westchester Chasseurs, also known as, 'DeLancey’s Cow-boys' (from their additional duty of raiding for cattle and other supplies to support Loyalist forces in New York City).

The other Trewyn arms also inspired the use of the division per chevron in this shield. But here the chevron shape is embattled to signify a ‘fortified settlement’ – the chevron suggesting the eaves of a settlement; and the embattling, its fortification.

The tinctures of the shield are those of the Royal Arms of Saskatchewan, in which province the armiger's natural mother was born and raised. In the base of the arms, a golden garb on a green field also recalls the arms of Saskatchewan. Additionally, Cumberland County (where Joseph refuged) employs a yellow wheat sheaf as the central element in its municipal symbol.

As a difference, Mr Braun bears these arms within a bordure wavy Brunâtre. Traditionally, the bordure wavy has been sometimes used to signify a natural child. For this armiger, the tincture of this bordure (and mantling) cants on his surname, Braun. The bordure wavy makes an additional reference to the 'barry wavy' of the arms of Kelowna, which signify Lake Okanagan.

The motto, From Family, Strength, is that of his natural mother, and recalls the loving emphasis she and her own mother place on family. It also echoes the royal motto of Saskatchewan, Multis E Gentibus Vires.
