    Not quite right but close.

    Two Lion's on either side facing a stack of corn, with swords above them, should be a hand holding a single sword IIRC.

    The information for my family is a bit scant tbh. No coat of arms either

    Found it myself on Google though:

    Mine's a queer one. Looks like a knights helmet with loads of plumes made of cloth. Accompanied by a necklace on top. On top of a shield.

    Father's side:

    First found in County Cork where they were anciently seated at Muskerry, later moving to Limerick, Kildare and Dublin.

    That is probably correct because my father was from Co Cork

    Mother's side:

    First found in Somerset, and in Guernsey where they were seated from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

    cool bio huh? I think they came over from France with William the Conqueror (William of Normandy). They don't know the motto, and the crest is a little imprecise.

    I got the three lions with a hand holding a sword above it for my dad's side,
    "The name derives from the tenth century King of Ireland" does that mean I could be a princess??!
    For my mom's side it's three acorn leaves,
    "Anglo-Norman origin having been introduced during the invasion of the twelfth century"
    I knew all that already cause it's been in our hallway for as long as I can remember!

    Any name I try brings up the same generic image, even the most common Irish names.
