I should point out that, whilst there is a reasonable chance this is a Durie coat of arms, we have yet to find who it belonged to.
Can GRSt advise whether there are Durie connections in the family ? A grand-parent or great-grandparent perhaps ?

I have records going back to the early 1800's on my mothers side with surnames of Diack and Gordon.  On my fathers side records go back to around the early 1700's with surnames of Russell, Bowie, Taylor, Bruce and Paterson.
Thanks for all your interest. I find all your comments quite fascinating.  The ring maybe has no family relevance but it would nevertheless to know its origin.
