Our Family Heraldry

I have spent some time looking up facts on our family crest. I posted it on a blog some friends and I are trying to keep up-to-date with information we are learning during our history studies this year. If you would like to read it click here.

I am pretty sure that what you thought was an eagle in the crest is actually what is knows as a griffin (mythological creature with the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle). At least, that is what Grandpa, who had done some research of his own, thought it was. You can learn more about them here:

Interesting project though! I look forward to hearing more about what it means.
