The GUYMON Coat of Arms Page
While browsing for genealogical information at the University of Tennessee,
Knoxville library, I looked up the name GUYMON in several books of Coats of Arms.
In the Reistap Armorial, a very old book with very thin pages, I found a GUYMON
Coat of Arms, with its armorial description. The notation below the name was 'Il. de Fr. Vs.', which
was a region near Paris, before some leader decided to parcel it out to his buddies. I
do not believe it is an official region today.
I have rendered a color version based on the following description:
"Blah blah blah
blah blah and so on.
I need to find it again
in my research notes.
Claiming this coat of arms, based on the rules as I understand them,
would be difficult. It could be done, but of course, we would have to prove first son of first son of first son of etc. etc. etc.
I once sent off for one of those $29.95 dollar specials, which would
return to me the Guymon Family History, and a coat of arms. What you
get, is a book on general heraldry, and genealogy, with a list of
Guymon families, probably gleaned from phone book data bases. The coat
of arms was a green oak tree on a gold mound, which is found on many
coats of arms for families like 'Guy', 'Gaymont', and other similar
and dissimilar names. Finding a real Guymon family coat of arms seems
If any one has found other Guymon coats of arms, or has any other information, please send me a copy, and I will put it on the WEB...
