Re: Crest

Sorry. I don't recognize it off the top of my head, and unlike for shields, I'm not aware of any ordinaries covering crests that allow you to search based off of design. All I can suggest is going through Fairbairn's, and look at the entries for names related to the area in question. You could also ...

Re: Morrison Crest

Any time. Also though, seeing as how you're in Scotland, instead of mixing elements of two coats of arms, why not just petition Lyon to get your own coat of arms? ;)

Re: Morrison Crest

Andy, That is a rendition of the chief's coat of arms/amorial achievement. (The crest is just the part on top of the helmet) You can read a transcription of the letters patent here: http://clanmorrison.net/public_html/chief.htm Their contents should answer many of your questions. Any that it doesn't...

Stone Mountain Highland Games 2014

Rich Morrison and I convened, with Bob Morrison in the wings as backup. Andrew Morrison was there as well as an Honored Guest of the games. Marion Morrison (aka John Wayne) showed up too, in a manner of speaking anyway, and attracted a lot of attention to the tent. We had a decent number of visitors...

Viking ancestry.

Yet another article about a study of Viking y-dna ancestry in the UK. Interesting in that it gives percentages for different areas in Scotland.

Sounds very likely, and he or she may have got the idea of a snake from the same source that I did.

Re: Cap badges.

Alex, I'd tend to agree. But I remember on the old tartans.com forums we had someone from Australia mention that some people there were using a badge with a snake crest in the past prior to Dr John being recognized as chief. However I can't recall if he mentioned what motto was used. Morrison of Bog...

Re: Cap badges.

Thanks Alex and Edwin.

Mainly what I'm looking for though are pictures of the actual badges, in part to see if they actually matched the blazons of the crests from other known Morrison heraldic achievements or not. I'm also curious to see how many variations were out there in the past.

SNP FGC4078

I'm having my Dad (M315 in Group N2 ) tested for SNP FGC4078, which was discovered in a few full y tests on people he closely matches in the M222 project.

Re: Cap badges.

Thanks Jim.

Has anyone seen any of the ones using a snake as the crest? In an old discussion on tartans.com someone from Australia had mentioned them.

Cap badges.

I'm in the process of writing a paper on heraldry for the Clan Society and am looking for some images of the cap badges people were wearing before there was a recognized chief. I've heard of at least 2 variations, one using 3 heads, and one using a snake, but I've never actually seen them. If anyone...
