von BACKSTROM. Azure, three escallops argent. Motto: Spes mea in patria (fig 248). [25] Johann George Friedrich von Backstrom, fr. Wesel (Germ.), b. 1764, d. 7.1.1812; in 1795 translator of the Council of Justice. Marr. 18.6.1797 Johanna Georgina SPRENGLER. His only child, Maria Elizabeth, bapt. 6.5.1798, marr. 16.11.1818 Andrew Geddes BAIN.

[25] In the German Rhineland 'von' often has the same meaning as the Dutch 'van' and does not necessarily indicate nobility. I failed to find the arms in any German armorial.
