    • Cantrell Coat of Arms/Nobility

      Let me start by saying that the Coat of Arms is granted to a man and is handed down to his male heirs, oldest to youngest, with it changing a little per age of son. The Cantrell/Cantrill Coat of Arms was recorded in the Heraldica of Richard III as belonging to Lord Thomas Cantrill, 1st Duke of Norfolk. We were noble long before this time though. The Cantrell family was a part of the Norman Invasion of 1066. We were a Norman Noble family from the region of Chanterelle in Normandy. So, even though I love the stories that I read about us being bell ringers, they simply are not true. Now with a little history behind our family, I shall move on.

      The Coat of Arms does not belong to every Cantrell/Cantrill. It is only passed on down the male line of His Grace Lord Thomas, Duke of Norfolk. It is not nor has it ever been a family item. I appologise if this hurts some feelings out there, but it is the truthe and that is what we are all here for. I have researched the Cantrell/Cantrill family for almost 10 years. I do not know everything yet I feel that I am very knowledgable in the area. If anyone would like to share any information I am always happy to meet cousins from distant and different lines of the Cantrell/Cantrill family.

      Respectfully,

      His Grace Lord George Cantrell, 11th Duke of Norfolk,16th Earl of Stirling

      Also, I would like to reitterate that we are of Norman descent not French. At the time of the Norman Conquest of 1066, Normandy was a stand alone country. It was shortened from North Men, which if we look for means Viking not French. [3]
