Looking for COAT OF ARMS of STAGGS

One problem, guys--a coat-of-arms is given by a king to a specific man and his direct descendants, NOT to everyone in the world with the same last name. This is why a name may have more than one coat-of-arms! Unless you can trace your ancestry directly to someone awarded one by a king, you don't HAVE a coat-of-arms.
