The nails strewn across the shield (semy) are based on the armiger’s ancestor John Ball, baptised July 1, 1759, Westbury on Severn, Gloucestershire, the illegitimate son of Sarah Ball of Castle Frome, Herefordshire. John Ball was handed over to the London Foundling Hospital in July 20, 1759, re-baptised and given the name Thomas Globe.

Thomas Globe became a nailer (nail maker), settling in Wentworth, Yorkshire.

In the crest the ancient hull represents the Globe name crossing the oceans to at least three continents. The armillary sphere is intended as a pun on the name.

Assumed: Denmark May 2011.
