Seymour / Family History
The family history of the ancient name Seymour was found in the irishsurnames.com archives. Counties Cork, Tipperary and Dublin.The Seymour family crest (or coat of arms) came into existence many centuries ago. The process of creating these coats of arms began as early as the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this, including Ireland. The new more formalized art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own family crest, coat of arms, including Seymour descendants.
