The arms of Joshua Barger,
                                              Lord of the Manor of
                                              Swanborough
The
                                                      badge of Joshua
                                                      Barger, Lord of
                                                      the Manor of
                                                      Swanborough
Badge: A cross bottony Gules between four escallops Azure.

Standard: Four yards in length with the Arms in the hoist, of four tracts, created by two transverse bands Azure bearing the motto INVICTUS MANEO in letters Argent, his Badge in the first and third compartments Argent, his crest in the second compartment also Argent, the whole fringed compony Argent and Gules.

The armiger became the Lord of the Manor of Swanborough (East Sussex) via deed conveyance in 2021. The Manor was a monastic grange for the Priory of St. Pancras (Lewes Priory) and following the English Reformation, other Lords of the Manor included Thomas Cromwell, and for nearly 400 years, members of the Sackville family (the most recent being the 10th Earl De La Warr).

Following the conveyance, the armiger sought a formal grant of arms, and chose to revise his previously assumed design. The tinctures of Gules (red), Argent (white), and Azure (blue), represent his American heritage. The escallops in the chief represent his passion for travel and also pilgrimages he has undertaken. The cross represents his Christian faith, while also paying homage to the history of the Lordship - as the arms of Lewes include a Gules (red) quarter featuring Argent (white) cross-crosslets. The acorned oak sprig symbolizes antiquity, strength and independence, while also representing the time spent at his alma mater, Lake Forest College.

The crest features a collared and chained wolf, holding a lit torch. The wolf is one of the armiger's favorite beasts, and symbolizes valor, adaptability, and deep connection with instincts. The torch represents the armiger's birthplace, while also symbolizing life, truth, and intelligence.

The motto, Invictus Maneo, translates to I remain unvanquished"

The armiger has been admitted to orders including the Order of the Eagle of Georgia and the Seamless Tunic of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Order of St. Michael of the Wing, and the Military and Hospitaller Order of St. Lazarus of Jerusalem. He is also a Commissioned Kentucky Colonel of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

He has also been admitted to organizations including the Manorial Society of Great Britain, Royal Society of St. George, General Society of the War of 1812, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, Sons of the American Revolution, Military Order of Foreign Wars of the United States, Order of the Founders and Patriots of America, National Society of Sons of the American Colonists, and the Jamestowne Society.

The standard of
                                                Joshua Barger, Lord of
                                                the Manor of
