The Heraldic description of the BOBBITT coat of arms is: Gules, three bends argent. First introduced about 1250 A.D.

Gules: the tincture Ted in heraldry. It is represented in an engraved escutcheon by vertical lines close together.

Three bends: a band diagonally from the upper left (dexter) side of the shield to the lower right or sinister side. Properly it would be one third of the width, but often is less.

Argent: the white color in the coat of arms intended to represent silver, purity, innocence, beauty, gentleness.

Reference to a "generation" normally means a measure of time, that represents about twenty five or thirty years, or the period of time which man requires to attain maturity. As a rule it is the age at which the first child is born to a family.
