Hi Mr Laferriere,
Well as a Laferriere myself I was concern by that question about Family Crest. My ancestor was Rene Houray came to Canda from Azay-le-Rideau, Tour, Touraine, France at the age of 22 on a boat (july 1653, Grande recrue de MTL) named ST.NICOLAS DE NANTES with Marguerite Bourgeoys and Maisonneuve . René Houray married Denise Damene at Cap de la Madeleine, Qc Oct. 26 1665. They had children.. one of those was Pierre Houray dit Laferriere married to Etiennette Dubord dit Lafontaine on Nov 3 1701 at Berthier Quebec.Houray named was drop and just Laferriere left.

Back to your crest.... if we are from the same root ... you should look for crest under "HOURAY" not Laferriere
