Coat of Arms-Crest

This is genealogy on Arms and Crest was from the Vaughan group in Feb. 2007
"Sources have been mainly Basil's book , as well as a bit from "Vaughans in Wales and America" by James E. Vaughn, which has a large section on selected Welsh and English Vaughans. The names are spelled all different ways, sometimes the children of a person were given the "AP Given name" as their surname: For example, my father was Edmond Davis, my mother was Marilyn Myers. If I was listed in some Medieval genealogies, I could appear as Edward Davis, or Edward Ap Edmond or, if my father was unknown, even Edward Ap Marilyn. Verch is the female version of this term, it means "daughter of". Then you have rather vague notes on how these dudes connect to each other. They will say things in the records like (in this made up example): "John Vaughan ap Thomas of Nevernever land was the first Viscount Neverland. He was the natural son of Thomas of Oz who matriculated at Whatsamatter University in 2007. His wife was Dorothy Verch Kansas."This could mean that John Vaughan married Dorothy Verch Kansas, or it could mean Thomas of Oz married her. I've seen it go both ways in the Genealogies."Matriculated" although it sounds rather rude is simply a fancy word for "Started going to" or "started attending". You see that word a lot.Then you find errors in dates, where numbers have been reversed, or families that used the exact same given name for hundreds of years and you can't figure out which dude is which. Or they will have someone appear as "Roger of Bredwardine" in one place and another as "Roger Vychan" and another as "Sir Roger of Agincourt" and so on, but they all will mean the same guy. ( http://freepages.family.rootsweb.com/~heraldry/bga_vaughan3_vavasour.html ) that has descriptions and mottoes of various families' coats of arms. Below are all from this list that are of Vaughan families. I'm slowly becoming familiar with these lines, so hopefully in a few more months and after several sessions of shock therapy I'll be able to converse intelligently about each line and how they descend. Note the first one, which has three fleurs-de-lis as the arms -- this is the arms of the Earls of Lisburne, who still have a descendant alive today and who live at Vaughan lands very near (but not on) the Tretower area. This coat of arms is what is most commonly shown on the Internet as being "Vaughan Coat of Arms". It is NOT our line though. The Arms that have the boys' heads and snakes are mostly descended from Sir Roger and I feel that is probably -- somehow-- 'our' branch."

Sir,

I am hopeful that you could perhaps help me - we are certainly related. My family has Vaughans in our line. I was recently going through family silver, and found three pieces of Georgian silver (spoon, teapot, creamer) with the Vaughan (Courtfield) crest, but compound with another unknown crest. Please contact me - I would like to email you pictures of the items to see if you have any idea about the identity of the other side of the crest. spencerpklein@gmail.com
