Arms, crest and motto of Smith.

Arms, crest and motto. The arms of Smith of Crantock and Tregonnick are azure a saltire between four martlets argent (Burke, Bernard, The General Armory of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, p 936. , London, Harrison & Sons, Visitations of Cornwall, p 430). The crest here is probably a griffin segreant, i.e., the whole bird, with wings expanded. The motto, Sursum quaero, may be derived from Quae sursum sunt, quaerite (Seek those things which are above) (Colossians 3:1).
