Baronet Crest

In 1868 the following Arms were registered by the College of Heralds in favour of Henry William Peek, M.P., eldest son of James Peek, Founder of the James Peek Trust, and grandson of John Peek of Hazelwood. He was created a baronet in 1874.

Azure, an estoile argent, in chief three crescents of the last. Mantling azure and argent.

Crest On a wreath of the colours, two hazel-nuts slipped proper.

The motto, "Le Maitre vient", is a play upon the maiden name of Sir Henry Peek's mother, née Elizabeth Masters, who was descended from an old French family named Lemaître of Dieppe. The latter family sought refuge in England after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes.

The above Arms, a description of which can be found in all the usual reference books, are now held by the present and sixth baronet, Sir Richard Grenville Peek.
