The red colouring is a figment of my computer's imagination. The crest is on a steel platter.

Thanks

Not 'the' Hunt family, but 'a' Hunt family.There are many different arms (37+) and crests (11+) registered in the surname of Hunt.

Right, well I'm wondering if anyone from "a" Hunt family recognises the crest. It does not belong to my family (great grandfather - maternal). But is certainly Hunt.

Definitely too many for you to be asked to post... however, would you please point the poster to the source(s) of the arms and crests you mentioned are registered for the surname Hunt?

I'm interested in this too, I have a hand-painted coat of arms dated to about 1910, obviously just as concoction of various Hunt coats of arms which an ancestor put together, but interesting nevertheless. It includes a motto which I know real C of A never have or had. Does the original poster have a motto? My HUNT family came from Worcester, UK.

Hi 13confido.

Sorry, my wording may have implied that this was a registered crest. I do not know that, I am just trying to establish if any HUNT members recognise this.

A friend of mine came across an old, possibly silver, platter. After hours of research, he found some very similar family crests. All of which were HUNT.

Thanks

Hi Ciotach

My mother's grandfather was HUNT, hence my interest in this platter.

My search so far indicates that the family originates from Monmouthshire, Wales. My parents emigrated to South Africa in 1963, and sadly I have very little contact with Mum's family so the search is very time consuming.

No known family motto yet, but I have discovered that they all had many children. Think it will be a huge family tree when I get down to serious research.

As has been repeated over and over on this board....

"There's no such thing as a 'family crest'."

The crests are generally found above Arms. The arms and crests are granted to a single person, not a family.

Commercial links are not allowed on the Rootsweb/Ancestry boards. Please edit out the link from the board post, or I must, under the guidelines and AUP, delete the entire message.

Are you trying to figure out the origin of the platter? It would be best if you post a photo of the actual item.

Hi Lauren,

Link has been removed. Apologies for the infraction, it was not intentional.

Thanks for the info regarding the crests and arms being granted to a single person, that is very interesting.

Yes, I am trying to find out the origin of the platter, but the only distinguishing feature is the crest. As I've said before, my interest lies in the surname. As the platter is obviously very old, it would be fascinating to trace the history of how it travelled from the UK (I assume) and ended up in a job lot in South Africa.

Will see if I can get hold of a high quality photo of the platter. May I post it here, or would that enquiry belong in another area on the forum?

Thanks
Mandy
