Onderwerp: Hutto Coat of Arms
Joop, Been sometimes so I hope that you and yours are well and
Just in the last 60 days I received information about a Coat of
Arms for the Huttos but I questioned it.
And you should
Do you know anything about a
Coat of Arms for the Huttos? I started doing some research and came up
with a Crest and Coat of Arms, which, I question since the name Hutto was
not a base name and did not legally come into existence until after the
death of Henry Huttow. I am attaching copy of what I have found out and
am still researching.
The book mentioned is of:

The book of Rietstap is genuine, but only describes a coat of arms in words.
The truth is a genealogical question. The best bet is to look into an
armory. Books which list the arms of families are called armories, and there
are many armories for many countries. If you want to look for arms born by
families with the same name as yours, you need to go to a library and
consult armories. The most general one was compiled by Rietstap in the late
1800s, and it covers all of Europe; for the British Isles, the main armory
is Burke's. But both are far from complete, not free of errors, and give no
references. Look at the bibliography for more information on armories.
Can you add any enlightment to this matter? You will note
the Coat or Arms is in either German or Latin.
The description is in French, but the book was published by a Dutch company:
Van Goor & Sons in Gouda, the Netherlands around 1887.
Is the translation correct

Would appreciate your input.
I'm afraid in your country scheme's are set up just as in ours. From the
description the crooks draw a self made coat of arms and try to sell it to
everybody they can find that hold that family name. There is NO proof the
coat belongs to your family at all.
The Giezendanner family has several Coat of Arms, but they have really
nothing to do with warriors and knights or battle.
In all of our coats one will see a "Tannenbaum" = Christmas tree, which
probably has to do with the forest work that was common among the early
Giezendanners. It was like a signature in times not all were able to read. A
seal, ring or sign would help to identify one family from another. Coat of
Arm sellers are all trying to find ways to our deep wishes to be of noble
blood with a castle somewhere and if possible a family fortune waiting to be
