Crest

Post by Over seasons » Tue Jul 05, 2016 5:32 pm

Hi, I was hopping someone would have some information on this crest, my papa (I was told they were from lismore island, Scotland. That's where the crest is from) said this was one of our family crests. I've never been able to find anything else about it online though

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 try contacting Lyon Court and ask them for assistance.

Sorry but this looks like nothing in terms of the Morrison clan that I know of if you refer to my post within the heraldry section you shall see the recognised Morrison crest/motto etc. though I may be wrong...
