I replied to a message regarding the Prouty coat of arms or crest, but I think this is of interest to all. I Worked in England for 2 years in the early 90s, and visited the College of Arms in London to get some answers regarding two different coats of arms for Prouty. to my disapointment, it turns out that neither are official. I have transcribed the letter from the herald that conducted the research, into a MS Word document. If you would like to read the results, e-mail me and i will send the document as an attachment to a return e-mail.
