Monks Coat of Arms

Hi everyone,

I recently discovered that my mother's maiden name, Monks, has a Coat of Arms. Obviously, C of A's were awarded to individuals and not names or families, but is there a way to find out who the Coat of Arms was granted to.

Also, my grandmother has a wooden plaque in her hallway with this exact Coat of Arms that I hadn't noticed before. She said she and my late Grandfather got it, "oh, over twenty years ago!"

Is it possible that we are entitled to a Coat of Arms granted to an ancestor?

Re: Monks Coat of Arms

Not 100% sure on this one Ryan, but I have found a link for you. May be a starting point?

H Ryan...heres one coat of arms but there could be many for such an old name as Monks...alot of wealthy families changed them over the generations to suit themselfs.

Re: Monks Coat of Arms

Hi Lee,

That's the one that is hanging in my Grandmother's hallway. You're right, Monks does appear to be a very old name, but not one that is particularly common I would have thought. Here's hoping it belongs to an ancestor
