Clan Crozier

Clan Crozier (crosier, croser, etc.) is one of the border reiving clans of Scotland, along with the Armstrongs, Elliots, and Nixons. Some sources cite the surname as a sept of the Armstrong clan, but the Scottish parliament in 1587 identified the Croziers as a middle march clan.[1]

Associated with The Death of Percy Reed.

Motto

The Crozier family motto is Diligentia fortior, or "stronger by diligence".[2]

Coat of arms

The Crozier coat of arms shows four gold bees on a black shield along with a white 'hummet' cross. One possibly interpretation is as follows:[3]

Gold: generosity and elevation of the mind Green: Hope, joy, and loyalty in love Black: Constancy Bee: Efficient industry
