-- The squirrel signifies that the bearer was most happy in rural retirement and is a lover of woodland. The hazel branch is a symbol of abundance.
-- The Holt motto is “Exaltavit humiles” which means “He has exalted the humble.”
Neither Jill nor I possess Holt blood. I was adopted into the Holt family at an early age by my dad, for which I am very thankful. I am fond of saying that I am twice adopted; once into the Holt family, and once into God’s family!
My father is Dennis Holt (brothers Randy, Tom) --> Leroy Holt. Leroy drove trucks in WWII and still has a scar on his cheek from a German sniper (very close call). My uncle Randy Holt (Texas) is an avid student of genealogy and knows a lot more than I.
This is my mother's coat of arms! This is part of the Follett Holt lineage. This would have been my great grand father's I suspect, as he had quite an influential role in establishing the Argentine railroads.
I'm not sure if it pre-dated this but I could check with my mum if you're interested? She has lots of information on the topic.
Nice to see it online!

My Great Grandfather was Alfred Pumphreys Holt of NW Arkansas. His family is fairly well documented in "The History of Washington County" - Ark. My father's name was George Forrest Douglas. Interesting to see both Holt and Forrest there. 14SEP2014

Hellow fellow Holts,
Much like Ben, I (Robert E.)was adopted into the Holt family. Actually my father (Robert A.) was the one adopted by my Grandfather Gordon Leroy Holt, when he was 6. The way 'Gordy' told it, his Grandparents moved from Wales (as Hoult's) and settled in Quebec. Then they moved down to Milwaukee, WI where Gordy was born. He served as a Sargent (Radio Man) in the Pacific theater in WWII (Guam, Iwo Jima etc) And after, settled in California where. It was in California that he met my Grandmother Rose Marie. Rose already had my dad, who was 6 when Gordy officially adopted him. Meaning HOLT is my birth name, but not my blood name. Regardless I am proud to carry and represent the Holt name!
