I am very interested in learning more about Sir Robert Cordon Gilmour.  Several years ago I acquired a very fine shotgun built by HJ Hussey sometime between 1907 -1910.  All of HJ's guns were bespoke so I know the gun was built to someone's specifications.  The family crest/coat of arms is engraved in a gold oval in the stock (see photo).

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

This is the gun, cased.

I did some research in Fairbairn's book of crests of the families of Great Britain and Ireland and the only family referencing that motto (Perseverantidabitur) is Gilmour of Craigmillar, Scotland.
Researching that family name lead me to Sir Robert Gilmour.  The timing would be about the time he turned 50 and his retirement from the Grenadier Guards in July of 1910 and gun would have been ordered by a man of means.

Can anyone provide any additional information on Sir Gilmour? Was he a sporting gentleman?

Thank you,

Jay Gardner
