Actually, Samantha, there is no such thing as a Flewelling coat-of-arms; at least not in North America. The Flewelling who was the first of the northern North America was unlikely to have been armigerous. Also, it is a common misconception that coats-of-arms apply to surnames. While to some extent this is true in some places (Germany, Japan), it is not for persons of British origins. Each coat-of-arms is the property of a single person, and is inheritable by the eldest son, Younger sons use slightly different arms, and their eldest sons inherit those, and so on. In Canada, with the relatively recent creation of the Heraldic Authority of Canada, ladies may also be granted arms, and inherit arms. This is probably the leading edge of a trend that will appear elsewhere in countries whose Heraldry is based on British traditions. This is not to say that some Flewelling's would not qualify for a grant should they wish to apply for one; but I know of none who have. One way of there being a Flewelling 'family' coat-of-arms would be the formation of an association. An association, as a corporate person, not only can petition for a grant of arms, but supporters, badge, flag and crest as well. Members of that association could use the bearings, but the association would 'own' it. The LeBlanc's have done this. Another means, in Canada, is to petition for a grant of arms to an ancestor. Then, each descendant of that ancestor would qualify for their own grant, based on the original. The actual living owner of the original grant would have to be determined by careful genealogical enquiry; with proofs. The only thing I have seen which approaches a Flewelling coat-of-arms (outside of some embarassing monstrosities) is one being sold by 'bucket shops'. It is, in fact, a variation of the supposed arms of Llewellyn the Last, and is presently the personal arms of HRH, Charles, the Prince of Wales. I would NOT recommend using it. I would be interested in what you have learned about your part of the family, and may be able to offer you some help.
