Re: Bussey Coat of Arms

Hello John,
If I remember correctly you first asked for the Bussey Coats of Arms back in 1998.
I am a member of GOONS (the Guild of One Name Studies) in England, and am researching especially the English variants of our name.
Records of grants of arms go back to 1484, but the Bussy arms Argent, three bars Sable appear in rolls of arms dating from the 13th century.
The crest described in the previous post (which comes from Fairbairn's Crests of the Families of Great Britain and Ireland) is more modern.
The Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies in Canterbury, Kent are doing some research into our arms for me, and I will gladly share this with our clan as soon as I have it.
Meabwhile, a picture of the Coat of Arms appears in Fairbairn (seen in most Libraries), but differs from that appearing in Lynn Bussey's first book.
Regards
Mike Moir-Bussy
