Hello, my name is Héctor Valencia, I live in Buenos Aires, Argentina. This is the first time I come across this Forum. I have the Valencia's COA. I brought it from Spain. It was taken from "Atienza, página 745" and says: "Castellano, de León. Una rama paso a Indias. Probó su nobleza diversas vecen en la Orden de Santiago y en las de Calatrava (1561 y 1649), Alcántara (1638,1699 y1756), Carlos III (1787, 1794, 1804 y 1834) y San Juan de Jerusalem (1543, 1586 y 1661). The COA is, I know you already have it but just in case I give it to you again, "Cuartelado en Stuer. 1° y 4° en campo de oro, un águila de sable; 2° y 3° en campo de plata, un leon de azur." My family comes from Zarza de Granadilla, Provincia de Cáceres, España. Arrived in Argentina by the end of the 19th C. We still have relatives there. I visited the town and met all of them. Some live in Madrid. Anything you need please write to me. Héctor Valencia
