The arms appear to have been in the family for many years and not registered.
John Gordon Buchanan is shown as son of John Buchanan of Dewsbury in Yorkshire and grandson of George Buchanan Esquire, third son of Beaver Buchanan Esquire.

Surveyor of Excise at  Strangford and Downpatrick.

I have located a Dr. George Buchanan of Downpatrick who was  a surgeon to the Royal
Infirmary Co. Down, who appears to be connected with the family of Dr. George Buchanan of
Fintona, and further I have located a Beaver Buchanan of Fintona born 1710 descended from
