Of course, I always knew it ! Us Funnells are of noble descent. At least… those of us from the UK (obviously, for the Aussies, it’s a different story, lol). How could it be otherwise? Our looks, physique, genetic traits… all indications of our thousand year family history taking us way back to times when all worthy men frequented the King and his barons. If not, they were just peasants and we couldn’t be a part of those now could we?
As I say, I just knew it. As do all Funnells in general. It’s in our blood. But never before had I found PROOF!
Well, today I made a major breakthrough in my family history research! Brick walls have been atomized in seconds.
Not only have I found a site which relates our origins; it also supports its historical facts with our Funnell family coat of arms. For copyright reasons, I can’t reproduce it here. That seems a bit abusive to me. A bit like multinationals copyrighting berries growing on trees in the jungle.
I CAN tell you that it’s blue and yellow. A blue square with a wide yellow arrow head pointing to the middle with three red stars, one at each extremity. In each blue part of the square, there is a large bird, swan or geese. The square is surmounted by a knight’s helmet and the whole thing reposes on ancient floral graphics reminiscent of the fleur de lys.
I couldn’t click fast enough to order my copy of the booklet relating our ancient family history. Haven’t experienced such impulse buying for years but well, it’s a virus isn’t it, this genealogy bug we suffer from?
CAN’T WAIT to get my hands on it.
