Subject: College of Arms website

Posts: 3
The updated College website offers special advice for American citizens seeking honorary arms. Descent from a "subject of the British crown" needs to be established - this is nothing I've not read before. What is curious is the next line: " A descent from an Irish or Canadian grandparent, or a father who was born in a Caribbean country where The Queen is Head of State, for example, would be sufficient."

Setting aside the distinction between the British and Canadian Crowns for a moment, and merely supposing they are discussing jurisdictions of HM's various officers of arms, how are we to interpret this statement? Would a Canadian connection be limited to the pre-CHA era? Does this policy infringe on the CHA's jurisdiction? Thoughts?
