Elk knows The Wald (forest)

Like those fathers of fathers before  me, they went forth, with concept of there own beliefs though others may not believe in my father’s father I do.

It is like the chromosomes of the German elk going back to ancient homeland, trace myself along my chromosomes to my ancient home lands.

Ellwood coat of arms Yorkshire

Has stag’s head.

Coin/sceat minted, and Ellwood/Elwood which became Gorrenberry/Horsleyhill Elwald/Ellot, coat of arms, from Yorkshire.


Ellwood/Elwood/Ellot/Elwald coat of arms is similar to old ker/kerr Ferniehirst coats of arms.

It should be noted that the elk(moose) was extinct from the British Isles way before the Elwald (Ellot), and Ker/Kerr set foot on the island. This gives reason to use a stag head instead of and elk (moose) head and to use the word elf instead of elk.

Can the elk of the wald; Elliot find their way back to Germany?
