Rhoten Coat of Arms

After extensive research of my family history I was able to determine the first Rhoten in America (Hezekiah Rhoten), who was a settler of Jamestown. From there I was able to find the name change in our family that was often spoke about when my ancestors helped to settle the "colonies" and determined that our original name was Wroughton.  This was due to opposing British rule and eventually my ancestor Thomas Rhoten fighting in the revolutionary war.

Following more study I found the Wroughton COA and its original heraldic description:

"Arms: Argent, a chevron Gules, between three boars heads coupled. Sable.
Crest: An ibex head Argent, Sable Pelleted, collared, ringed and armed in Or."


So I decided to create a version for my self. I admit that my heraldry knowledge lacks, but I think it turned out as authentic as possible in the end. I know that I do not have an official claim as one would through the College of Arms but I found a direct link of lineage through my family tree to Sir William Wroughton of Broad Hinton, Wiltshire, England.

I decided on the two welsh dragons because of what they mean and as I could not find a family motto, I created one. Anorum Honori: Ancestral Honor

This is for my use only and for those who share the name.

If you have any heraldry questions feel free to ask. I have about 20 years of experience as a titled herald and persuivant.

I have like a million questions. 

One being after reading the herald discription of the arms, do I indeed have it correctly portrayed?

What can I do to establish if it is correct and can I through the college of arms get the original Arms?

Thank you for your help.
Arms are registered to a person, there is no such thing as Family Arms. Some arms can be inherited, That has to be specified at the time it is granted.
From what I can tell, Yes that is the correct blazon.
