Came across your site while looking for Family crest/coat of arms only to learn they weren't assigned to familys but individuals.
I have tracked down my line of the Thomas surname as far back as Henry F. Thomas 1821-1893.
Good luck in your findings
My daughers is doing geanology and I was looking for anything that might help her an stummbled onto this site. Very nice, I will pass it on.
I stumbled on this while doing some crest research. Interested in learning more about my ancestors. I was named after both of my grandfathers. William on one side & Thomas from the other.
I just happen to come across your website, very interesting, thank you.
