Supposedly one of the oldest family crests.

Both this one and the one to the right were obtained from a United States on-line firm.

While there is no evidence that any of the shields are wrong, much hype and even misinformation abounds about family crests.

A more recent version (ie recent centuries).

This has has been obtained from two sources, which may or may not verify its accuracy.

The helmets and the rest of the designs outside the shield proper should be viewed as little more than a modern designer's imagination.

Bensemann descendant and amateur historian Brian Hunter has found this third crest.

Any information about Bensemann family crests or shields which could be added to this website would be gratefully received.
