Yup - you're right...there is a coat of arms. I have a small copy of one in front of me...trying to describe it wont be easy!!!! 3 strange looking green birds. 2 at the top of shield and one at bottom. In the middle is a head of a lion with a long green tongue. All facing left as i'm looking at it. THe birds could be falcons, but look more like parrots to me!!!!(grin). Come to think of it - if I sprayed my african grey with green paint, i would have quite a good likeness to the drawing!!!!!!!!!!!
A location name given to one who came from Smeaton (the Smith's Homestead) and found in Yorkshire and Midlothian. Early records show Johannes Smeton in the 1379 Poll Tax of Yorkshire, and a Henry de Smithetone of Edneburk rendered homage in 1296. 'Arms' from Scotland. 16th century.
Has anyone else any comments on the coat of arms subject???
