This is an ancient Scottish Wiseman-Wyseman family Coat of Arms.
Scottish arms are heritable property and can be claimed by, (or owned) , only by the original grantee and his immediate heirs.
There are many distinct and individual family Arms. These can be English, Scottish, or Irish.
While they are different, they tend to repeat features found on the first Wyseman-Wiseman arms.
On these Scottish arms common features include: the chevron or inverted V (usually white or ermine)( on these arms it is silver or "arg"); black or sable background; 3 elements (on these arms three gold or "or" wavy stars)
