please help me Identify the coat of arms
« on: Friday 06 December 19 14:55 GMT (UK) »
Hi everyone,
This is from Ann Eckett info between 1700s and 1800's I think. I cant read any of the writing and the picture is blurry. If anyone could try and help me identify the Coat of Arms please I would be so grateful. Thank you.

Where did you find it? It looks a bit like one of those that are sold by the dodgy websites that try to make money by convincing people to by a coat of arms that they are not entitled to.

Welcome from me too.

Burke's General Armory has no arms granted to anyone by the name of Eckett or Eckert - I have looked up the arms pictured in Papworth's Ordinary to see who he thinks they were granted to and again, no mention of Eckert.

The blazon of the arms is "Azure three roses Or."

I will attached a clip from Papworth in case any of the names mean anything to you, but I suspect it is the name Eckett you are interested in? As has already been suggested, this is almost definitely an example of 'Bucket Shop Arms' and although the 'certificate' for want of a better term, states that the arms were taken from Burke, it doesn't (and couldn't) state that Burke linked them to anyone of that name as he didn't!

Thank you so much everyone for looking into it for me! It was posted under her name on ancestory.co.uk by a man who I've tried to contact through the site by the messages wont link through unfortunately. Nevermind. Thank you again. Have a lovely weekend.

 :o I have just found the tree you refer to ... there appears to be some very confused heraldry on it! It seems that the arms have been allocated to ancestors based on a google search of the name or its variant. You were right to be wary!
