Re: Coat of Arms - CORRECTION
I am the great-niece of Alan Beddoe. Alan was won of Canada's leading Heraldic experts. He literally wrote the book on heraldry in Canada.

One very important point he taught me, is that a coat or shield of arms is not granted to a family, but to a person. SO there can be no “Beddoe (or Beddoes, Beddows) coat of arms.
The honour must be granted to a person for service to country or crown.
However, that doesn’t mean that finding a coat of shield of arms is not of value to us. The various symbols can tell us a great deal about the family history.
