Re: Pylant coat of arms

In Reply to: Pylant coat of arms by Terry Pylant Cummiskey of 130

Several years ago, a company was selling what it called the “Pylant Coat-of-Arms,” a shield with black crosses, red and gold bars, and a rooster at the crest. The report said that the arms is listed under the variant Bylandt, which was believed to be “associated with the Germans.” Bylandt, however, is a Dutch surname, not German. This report identified the source as “Siebmacher’s Wappenbuch,” but it gave the wrong volume, omitted the date 1678, and failed to note that the arms belonged only to Baron Van Bylandt. By 1678, the Pylant/Pyland/Piland family had been in America about 40 years. Also, the theory that the Pylant/Pyland/Piland surname evolved from the surname Van Bylandt now seems doubtful.
