Would these families be related?

Hi All,

I was reading a book about heraldry, and found that my cousin's Arms (Robert Finnie McEwen) included as Arms of Affection, the Finnie Arms. Researching further, I found the Arms of William Finnie of Hilbrae, and those of James Phine of Whitehill. All of these Arms bear striking similarities, and I'm trying to ascertain whether or not the families were closely-related. Interestingly, the Phine Arms had a notation: "Fin of yt ilk", which I take to be "Fin of that ilk". I'm finding it all to be very confusing. Thoughts?

Many thanks in advance,
Lynne.
