    Gold Ring with unknown Coat of Arms?

    Gold Ring with unknown Coat of Arms?

    Thank you for the clarification on the snuff dispencer, the stories were true :biggrin: I wasn't sure if it was 1745 or 1920, but I would go with 1745. Would there be a list of families with boars as part of their CoA, and then I could see any family named connections? Thank you both again.

    Thank you for your swift reply... Looks like the snuff dispencer is something to with the Earl of Coventry :D I'm trying to track down the hallmark on the ring, doesn't look English, I don't think? But could be Chester (Three wheatsheaves)...

    Jamaica:1687 - Coat of Arms?

    @Leefer, an interesting read, as I've never really looked into the history of Jamaica.
