the Family Coat of Arms / Crest
Many people are of the
mistaken belief that a particular family coat of arms / crest is theirs
just because their surname is the same or they come from the same country.
This is not always true. For example the surname “SMITH”
has over 100 different coat-of-arms for that surname. There can be multiple
coat-of-arms for a particular surname from the same country or from
different countries. The makeup of a coat of arms depends on many other
factors as well. It can depend on which country and what year the coat
of arms was made, along with who had it made, and how boastful they
were, and what alliances the family had at the time the coat of arms
was made, and these are just a few of the reasons that affect a coat
Always keep in mind that your surname can be derived from several origins;
for example the occupation of a person. Like the surname “SMITH”
could be from the occupation of a black smith, tin smith, and silver
smith and so on. Or the surname can be from the place a person came
from, or even a description of a person, along with several other origin
types. We use the oldest coat of arms or surname history that is in
our records. This does not mean it is the only coat of arms or surname
history out there and there may be other origins for this surname then
just the countries list.
The only way to be
certain of your family heritage is to have your family line researched
by a professional genealogist, which is a service we do not perform.
Although research in the origin of a surname is a service we do offer
and that service is discussed here.
