Netterville Coat of Arms / Netterville Family Crest
The arms associated to the name NETTERVILLE are recorded in Sir Bernard Burkes General Armory. Ulster King of Arms in 1884.
Exemplified to Joshia James McEvoy, Esq., J.P. second son of the late James McEvoy Esq., of Tobertinan, County Meath and Frankfort, County Longford, and to his wife Hon. Mary Netterville, daughter and co-heiress of James, seventh Viscount Notterville, on their assuming, by royal licence, 1865, the surname of Netterville in lieu of that of McEvoy. This Anglo-Norman family was formerly of importance in the Pale, although the name is now rare. The origin of badges and emblems, are traced to the earliest times, although, Heraldry, in fact, cannot be traced later than the 12th century, or at furthest the 11th century. At first armorial bearings were probably like surnames and assumed by each warrior at his free will and pleasure, his object being to distinguish himself from others. It has long been a matter of doubt when bearing Coats of Arms first became hereditary. It is known that in the reign of Henry V (1413-1422), a proclamation was issued, prohibiting the use of heraldic ensigns to all who could not show an original and valid right, except those 'who had borne arms at Agincourt'. The College of Arms (founded in 1483) is the Royal corporation of heralds who record proved pedigrees and grant armorial bearings. Early records of the name mention Roger de Netelfeld, 1221, County Worcestershire. John Poynton and Elizabeth Nettlefold were married at St. George's, Hanover Square, London in the year 1752. Many Highland families migrated from Scotland to Ireland during the 17th and 18th centuries, and were granted the lands of the native Catholic Irish. People heard of the attractions of the New World, and many left Ireland to seek a better life sailing aboard the fleet of ships known as the 'White Sails', but much illness took its toll with the overcrowding of the ships which were pestilence ridden. From the port of entry many settlers made their way west, joining the wagons to the prairies, and many loyalists went to Canada about the year 1790, and became known as the United Empire Loyalists.
