Whitehall, December 13, 1815. His Royal Highness the Prince Regent, taking into His royal consideration the highly distinguished services of Colonel James Stevenson Barns, Lieutenant-Colonel of the 1st (or Royal Scots) Regiment of Foot, Companion of the Most Honourable Military Order of the Bath, and Knight of the Royal Portuguese Military Order of the Tower and Sword, manifested by him on divers important occasions in the campaigns of Toulon, Corsica, Holland, Egypt, and during the recent arduous operations and splendid achievements of His Majesty's arms in Portugal, Spain, and France, and being desirous of conferring upon that Officer such a mark of His Majesty's favour, as may, in an especial manner, evince the sense His Royal Highness entertains of the intrepidity and valour dis, played by him at the memorable battle of Busaco



(wherein as Lieutenant-Colonel on the Staff he commanded a brigade); at the capture of Badajos, on the 6th of April 1812 ; at the victory of Salamanca (wherein leading his battalion to the charge he was severely wounded); and his distinguished gallantry at the assault and capture of St. Sebastian, and at the battles of the Nive; hath been pleased, in the name and on the behalf of His Majesty, to grant unto the said Colonel Barns, His Majesty's royal licence and authority, that he and his descendants may bear the following honourable augmention to the arms of bis family, viz. A chief, thereon the representation of the curtain

of a fortification, and above, the word St. Sk

BASTIAN, as also a canton, charged with repre«sentations of the gold cross presented by His Majesty's command to the said James Stevenson ·

Barns, and of the badge of the Royal Portuguese Military Order of the Tower and Sword,

pendent from the ribbands to which the said distinctions are respectively attached;" and the following crest of honourable augmentation, viz. Issuant from a broken battlement, a dexter arm " in armour, the hand grasping a banner, inscribed “ ST. SEBASTIAN,” in allusion to the conspicuous conduct of the said Colonel Barns on the 31st of August 1813, when he gallantly led the 3d battalion of the Royals, and assaulted and carried the curtain of that fortress, thereby eminently contributing to the ultimate capture of that important place; provided the said armorial distinctions be first duly exemplified according to the laws of arms, and recorded in the Heralds' Office, otherwise His Majesty's royal licence and permission to be void and of none effect:

And also to command, that the said concession and especial mark of His Majesiy's favour be registered in the College of Arms.
