Bourchier is an ancient Stone family name. The character on the seal displayed on this website is the heraldic badge of the Barony of Bourchier.
In England’s turbulent 15th century, Thomas Bourchier, Chancellor of Oxford University, Archbishop of Canterbury and Lord Chancellor of England, crowned three kings from opposing factions, Edward IV, Richard III and Henry VII. As expert diplomat, negotiator and peacemaker, Thomas is a role model for today’s Bourchier team. The Latin motto on the seal can be freely translated as ‘Together we make a good team’.
