Some years ago, I was researching the history of the founding father of my home town, Governor Robert Treat(Trott) and his personal seal. The seal design’s octagon was adopted by the City of Milford in recognition of Treat!
Below we can see the design he used and my question for years was why? What did it mean when I presented it to my friend Dr. Robert Hieronimus that this symbolism may have been the earliest symbolism of “Star Symbolism” used by a colonial goverment officical that predates the symbolism of the United States. When I was on Dr. Bob’s show, I was not far off from my theory that this was the earliest star symbolism associated to the US government symbolism of our nation identity with the Stars & Stripes and the US Great Seal designs.
Gov. Treat “Could Only” have adopted the Mourning symbolism of Charles I right at the time he confronted Sir Edmund Andross the Governor of the new England Dominion! In fact, Treat used such great diplomacy during the famous swiping of the Connecticut Colony Charter with the Charter Aak Incident to save the colony that Andros made Treat a member of his council.
The Treat Seal is a little different in the face-simile, comparred to the Mourning symbolism of Charles I. Where I was correct on my theory with Dr. Bob on 21st Century Radio. The hollow heart and the five pointed star can only represent the “Star Chamber Court” that persecuted and condemned the Sovereign Charles I. Except the octoagon is symbolic to the King and the “Order of the Garter”! Which represents the symbolism of the earliest American flag design on the famous Webb Horn called the “Star & Stripes”.
So the evidence provided below proves that my home towns “octagon” symbolism, represents Charles I and the Garter Star. Now I wonder what my town will say when they can’t disprove this slam dunk tid-bit of factual history!
Note: Will be interesting to see what the City will say when this story is known! Small City with a big heart is the slogan and the Octagon! Not far off from the factual history..

The Image below of the button belongs to one of the most amazing 16th-18th century collectors Mr. George Way from Staten Island, NY. Mr. Way gave permission for the image to be used for this educational post. The middle button is silver and believed to have been worn by supporters of King Charles! The Answer is that Mr. Way is dead on, 100% correct and it may very well link the person who wore this button with Gov. Robert Treat! Treat is acknowledged as the father of Milford and he also founded Newark, NJ! Could there be a connection with this button and Royalists associated to Gov. Treat, its very possible!

Produced after the execution of Charles I on January 30th 1649 (1648 in the Julian calendar) items like these were worn secretly by Royalist sympathizers during the time of the Cromwellian Republic. Suspended around the neck this locket could have been concealed beneath a shirt of jacket.
HISTORY ALWAY’S DOES A FULL CIRCLE! Connecting the Dots of History with American Symbolism.
The images granted by Yorkcoins.com will open the doors for my new research paper that will be posted on Electric Scotland for educational purposes only!
Note the bleeding heart with one drop and the eye weeping with three tears. The blood drop and some of the tears are diamond shaped drops! The diamond drops are confirmed with a few other Locketts on the internet and an identical one in the Massachusettes Historical Society collection.
Indepth symbolism studies proves this diamond symbolism represents the diamond history with Mary Queen of Scot’s with “New Hall” at Buxton when Mary’s was held under house arrest. Many prominent Elizabethans stayed at the Hall during her residency including the Earl of Leicester, the Earl of Pembroke, the Earl of Suffolk and Lord Burghley. At one stage it became the regular venue for the highest nobility of the land and the centre for court intrigues and “traitorous planning “against the crown of England. It was said that the future of England was determined more at the hall in Buxton than in London. Consequently it became known as ‘That house of Royal intrigue‘. Where Mary Queen of Scots scratched her famous couplet (Diamond)of Farewell to Buxton with a diamond ring on one of the bedroom window panes: ‘Buxton, whose warm waters have made thy name famous, perchance I shall visit thee no more-Farewell‘
Charles I owned the famous Crown Jewel named the Three Brothers and I may be correct that the three drops represent this history with Mary’s! How could this be factual, what proves would prove this symbolism to be true with “Plotting or Traitorous Planning”?
The King and Constitution Button is the “HARD EVIDENCE” that proves I am correct! Note the three diamond’s on each star point! The eight pointed star here has always been misidentified by button historians as being a “George Washington” proposal button to make him King of the United States. When this button is a Jacobite button that represents the exiled Prince of Scotland, Charles Edward Stuart who was officially the king of America, regardless of the Hanoverians being on the thrown! The crown that you see is a Scottish crown, identical to the crowns found on the famous Jacobite Amen Glasses!
So the diamonds here on the button represents the “Plotting or Planning” that associates the history back to the symbolism history with Mary Queen of Scot’s cutting the diamond in the Window, then to the death of Charles I. Explaing the significance of the Diamond history with the Stuarts and Jacobites with founding symbolisl of the United States. The octagon, star symbolism…
Going a little further with Charles I being executed! Charles did give his personal diamond signet ring to a trusted Bishop on the scaffold to hold for his son! This mystery may associate the famous ring that the Colony of Connecticut gave to Charles II to win favor in that time of turmoil!
We note that symbolism often has more meaning than just one subjectat the same time with these Sovereign people of the past, where the United States Sovereignty and Law originates from first hand evolution. Regarding the “Eye” history with Charles I. Here I have to quote my old friend Cort Lindalh, where my research allowed him to understand the Stuart association to his research. Including the Kings Knot (Octagon) at Stirling Castle that associates this history of the Octagon and the ancient sovereigns.
The octagon and All Seeing Eye is connected to this history with Charles I, and Stuarts. Yes, I do have to give Cort ” Credit” for connecting the dots on the history that I exposed to him! Only because my dedicated time with him allowes me to present this information for the first time with octagon symbolism that is not architecture related.
Below is written and taken from his blog. His own words are best to explain the history. He as a scholar with star mapping and ancient archietecture will leave an impact on society for future generations in his field of study.
Lost among all of this imagery of the severed head and Charles I is a direct connection to the imagery of Arcadia. The character of Philip Sydney the brother of Mary Sidney Countess of Pembroke wrote a work dedicated to his sister entitled “Arcadia.” The last words of King Charles I prior to his beheading was a passage from Arcadia known as “Pamela’s Prayer.” This prayer contains imagery directly referencing Argo and his and Zeus’ all seeing eyes in addition to many secular themes that are surprising given the Kings Catholic faith. The prayer seems to be an admonishment of the view that Charles was intolerant of other faiths. The fact that Charles chose this passage from a work entitled Arcadia may be directly related to the theme of the paintings at Moor Park and the imagery of Poussin we see on the Shepherd’s Monument at Shugborough Hall. This may be the message that Anson is telling us. The Shepherd’s Monument and other artwork valued by the Anson’s is an admission of their Jacobite sympathies to the lost Kings of the Stuart line of rulers.
Note: The Scholars HAVE NOT MENTIONED ANYTHING with this famous mystery site at Shrugbourough Hall. Even I contacted them and had not return correspondence. But, like Dan Brown’s phony history, this is not phony. But documented!
