Courtenay Coat of Arms?

submitted on Monday, February 21, 2011 at 00:13:34

e_mail: jdfp@buzzassociates.co.uk
ancestor: Early 1800s Powderham Branch?

comments: I am seeking to identify a coat of arms as follows:

Crest - coronet with ostrich plumes (no dolphin)

Motto - Ubi lapsus Quid feci

Shield - divided into two halves by vertical line (impaled)

Husband's side (LHS) Courtenay shield with gold ground, 3 red roundels with the addition of 5-pointed star (mullet)in red. This latter may be a 'mark of cadency' implying the shield is that of the 3rd son of the current family head.

Wife's side (RHS) Unknown shield with silver ground, blue chevron, above which is a horizontal row of 4 blue dagger-like crosses pointing downwards.


Can anyone help with names or possible dates please?

comments: I am trying to trace HENRY COURTNEY married to MARY McILLINOIS in Ireland. Their daughter, ROSE ANN COURTNEY was born abt. 1810 - 1812 and married WILLIAM WYLLIE.

I have searched and searched and have no idea where to go next. The Wyllie family did move across the sea to Scotland, but would love to know anything about the Courtney families in Ireland

Hope you can help or at least advise me.

Thank you so much

comments: hello my name is Cody Courtenay I am the grand son of Edward James Courtenay who was born in Bushmills Northern Ireland.

His birth date is March 16th, 1891

His parents are James and Katherine Courtenay and Katherine's maiden name is Getti.

I never had the chance to meet him as he died when my dad (Lionel Courtenay) was only about ten. I have his marriage certificate to my grandmother here in Canada and his death certificate, However i am looking at helping my family regain our roots and look at our citizenship.

For me to get my citizenship or for my father to get his we need a copy of the long birth certificate.
do you know who i can talk to or who can help me, if you know of anybody can you forward this information to them and get them to contact me.

I have been back to Northern Ireland and loved it met some 3nd cousins and think one day i might find myself moving back.

this website link is the best match of my grandfathers siblings and parents
