I often troll around the internet for interesting tidbits about heraldry.
This morning I found Bill Weir’s page about his family name (http://www.halcyon.com/weir/weir.html). He had found the blazon of the arms belonging to one of his ancestors, Sir George of Blackwood, but didn’t have a picture posted of the shield.
I figured I would help him out, and give him a quick work up on his Sir George’s arms. But Mr. Weir doesn’t have contact information on his site, so I’ll just post it here with a link to his site. Bill, hopefully you find this link, if you do, feel free to post this image on your site with your other information.
The arms blazoned: Argent, on a fess azure, three mullets of the same. Cited in Sir James Balfour Paul’s Scottish Ordinary in the years 1672-7.
For Bill or anyone else with the last name Weir, you may be interested in the following other Weir coats of arms: http://www.heraldry-online.org.uk/weir/weir-arms.htm
