As in Lucinda's daughter?!
Hi there, Our Thomas Family from Desecendants of Benedict Thomas born about 1592 in Pfullingen, Wurttembourg, Germany and His wife Elisabetha Rigert born about 1596 in Pfullingen, Wurttembourg, Germany as I found end years 1592 from Thomas family but hard to find Benedict's parent (unknown) as find out for me soon. Then Benedict 's 4th Grandson Johann (Johnnes/John) Peter Thomas born 1701 In Pfullingen, Wurttembourg, Germany then Peter Thomas go to London then they get ship from london in Jan 10 1739 over to American in Maryland or Pennsylvania that why.. but I wonder of about Thomas Crests (coat of arms) information? I want like to know If any informatioin about Johann Peter Thomas they call him Peter Thomas as Please information ... Thank You
The crest used by most who's family line comes from Wales is the crest of Sir Rhys ap Thomas. However, I am not sure that is correct as there are other families that ended up with the surname, but do not descend from Sir Rhys ap Thomas. The one on this site is more or less his coat of arms. http://www.4crests.com/thcoofar.html Here is what wikipedia shows as his coat of arms: sir rhys ap thomas coat of arms
I'm trying to fing the origin of the last name Thomas so I can find the proper family crest.. From what I can find it originated in Wales.. Does anyone know if this is correct?
I had exactly the same thoughts! My last name originates in Wales
Meant for that to say... Did your Thomas family come from any of those places.
Most sites recognize Thomas as being a Welsh surname as suggested here by Walker, SWalters and MThomas. MThomas your Thomas family come from any of these: Carmarthenshire, Wales Radnorshire, Wales Carnwyllion, Carmarthenshire, Wales Dynever, Glamorgan, Wales
Mine, too. And I could come up with the name of the village that all my Llewellyn Thomas ancestors came from, given enough time. :P
My maiden name is Thomas and we are Welsh.
No mention of the fact that many welshmen are 'Thomases'. they consider Thomas to be a welsh name!
