Robert Jamieson was a history teacher. He started out working in upholstery factories and as a bus conductor for London Transport. In the early 1970’s he decided to put himself through college and so after his long daily shifts at work he would shut himself away until the small hours of the morning working on gaining the necessary qualifications to go to college to become a teacher. He attended North East London Polytechnic and then went on to the University of London where he read history and received his degree in Education with Honors. His thesis was on the Oxford Movement and it gained him a prize. He dismissed it and did not make a to do of it, a typical reflection of who he was. Robert was a member of the University of London Convocation until it's abolishment in 2003

Robert was granted arms in 2003 by the Her Majesty's College of Arms in London, depicted here on the upper right of this page, including it's motto "Plus est en vous" - There is more in you. These arms were designed by Robert's son Andrew Stewart Jamieson, noted English artist and accomplished and honored heraldic designer.[1] Two interesting characteristics of these arms are the Owl, chained to a book on the crest and the Wolf''s head on the shield. These symbols depict Robert Jameson's passion with owls and the wolf is a symbol of a wise teacher.
