Crest of Blackburne family, north west England
« on: Wednesday 05 December 18 16:22 GMT (UK) »
The family’s crest of a cock and trumpet used to appear on pubs of that name, particularly near Liverpool.  Most seem to have flown away.

Does anyone have an illustration of the crest which I could use in a small piece on local history please?

Excellent!  I used to have one like that, but like the pub signs, long gone.  Thank you.

Here's an illustration of the Blackburn crest from Fairbairn's Crests.
