I recently aquired a book written in 1847 by John Barry Stetson. In it he states: "From what place he originated, I have not been able satisfactorily to learn." "Tradition says that he came from England, and from the County of Kent."
The book also includes a coat of Arms (Two what look like Griffins with a diagonal stripe between them) found in Cornet Stetson's papers and was believed by John Barry Stetson to be authentic.
I know next to nothing about the Stetsons and have no real ties that I know about, so if this information is old hat, forgive me. I also know that Coats of Arm were awarded to an individual not a family, just trying to add to what might be out there.
