Ormond Family 'Coat of Arms' inquiry
Posted by: Bernadette - Marea Ormond (ID *****8388) Date: October 17, 2004 at 21:31:56

Our family here in New Zealand would like to find our correct 'Coat of Arms' for our family line.

Our line is from David Ormond, Rector of Narberth, Pembroke from 28 June 1397 to 27 Sept 1398 & Rector of Manorbier 1415.

The original colours of the Ormond Arms are descibed as:

"Quarted: 1)Gold, A blue indented upper third; 2) Red, Three gold covered cups; 3)Silver, A black lion, a red upper third, charged with a gold swan, wings expanded, between two gold rings; 4)Ermine, a red cross."

Above the shield and helmet is the crest which is described as:

"Out of a gold Ducal Crown, five silver ostrich feathers; issuing therefrom, a silver falcon falcon rising,"

Does anyone have any further information as to the lineage of our family originating from Wales &/or England ?

Please reply to me as soon as possible, thank you

Bernadette Ormond
