Coats of arms for the WELLER name

There are several WELLER coats of arms. At least one was granted to a German WELLER family and another to Hieronymus WELLER von MOLSDORF (1499-1572) or a descendant. One of the English ones has white chevronels and roses on the shield and the motto 'Steady.' These arms were granted in 1672 to Richard WELLER, Rector of Warbilton (now spelt Warbleton) in Sussex.

I learnt that it was not uncommon for people in C18 and C19 to 'adopt' a coat of arms granted to someone of the same surname but quite regardless of any genetic link.

[Richard Morton Weller]
