Description

The Wilmot Arms Inn is a B&B in a former coaching inn built in 1844 in the small Tasmanian town of Kempton. The business uses the Wilmot coat of arms, or family crest, in their advertising. The family crest consists of a late medieval helmet with an eagle crest above a square shield containing three scallop shells and three eagle heads.

The Wilmot surname evolved from the personal name William and is first attested in England in the thirteenth century.

The coat of arms is also featured on their website: http://www.wilmotarms.com.au/
