Courtenay Coat of Arms?

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

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?
