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?
