Pringle Coats of Arms on Bookplates and on China

A dish with the Pringle of Stitchill (impaled with Macleod of Macleod) Coat of Arms on it:

Sir Walter Pringle of Lochton, Lord Newhall:

These arms claimed by an unknown Andrew Pringle are illegal. They are stolen from the Pringle Baronets of Stichill. The true undifferenced arms of the Pringles of Stichill have a knights/baronets helmet which faces the front, unlike these which have a gentleman’s helmet. There is no such thing as a ‘family coat of arms’ and any relative of the incumbent Baronet would need to have a mark of difference on the arms. Also in Scotland the scroll and motto are placed above the arms and not below, in the English style, as are seen here. 

Bowl with the Crest of the Pringles of Clifton and Haining:

The bookplate of Rear Admiral Henry Dundas Trotter (1802-1859)
in pale with the Arms of his wife Catherine Pringle of Stitchill.

The Arms assumed by William Pringle of the Scottish Masonic Knights Templars, which appear to be the Arms of Pringle of Whytbank with the addition of two blue towers and two blue fleur-de-lis.
