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.
The Elchwald, (Elwald, Ellot) & Kerr are marsh dwelling elk (moose), so guess I get to be as bull head and chase my ancestral pass back like the German elk(moose) of the wald(forest).
Area of the elk, showing where they are reentering, Germany.
Bec, as known as Beck Hall, as one on can see is moated/moted in.
The name Alan may have developed out of Croyland, said to be the original region of the Elwald/Ellot/Elliot.
Croyland, land of many names;
Croyland is fenland marshland;
Croyland is land of Danes;
Croyland of the Elwald-Elliot;
Croyland the region of Alan&Elfwald;
First Alan Of Bec-Beck Hall;
First Robert Elwald of Oulton;
Alan father of Robert Elwald;
Stag Head Family Symbol;
Ælfwald sceat/coin with stag head;
Elwood/Ellwood Crest of Yorshire/Cumbria onto Wm of Horsleyhill crest;
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?
