The Bundy Family Crest
Bundy Family Crest
It is first important to understand that anything you find on the internet which proports to be a family "Coat of Arms" is probably a scam.  There is no Bundy Family Coat of Arms, and if someone advertises it, they are probably trying to get you to send money or pay for a fabricated history and a coat of arms that has nothing to do with this family.

During the Crusades, if a particular family in England who was NOT of noble status were to contribute to the crusader cause, then that family and the soldier who joined the crusade would be granted a "family crest", such as you see above.  This symbol would be abazed upon the breat plate and shield.

Usually the particular family member would select sopme particular symbol that was in some way associated with or had special meaning to that family.  

The Bundy Crest that you see here is a "hand clutching a Falcon's leg or claw.  This was because the family occupation of the time of the  Crusades was that of "Falcon Trainers for the King".   It is as simple as that and in those times that was a very respectable occupation and afforded the family close contact with the power of the Kings.  The wreath looking item you see below the symbol indicated that that family participated in the Crusades, as that was what the Knights would wear around the armor helmet.  It was Red and White.  The white represented purity of spirit and the red was symbolic of the willingness to shed their own blood in the cause of the crusade.

This Crest, would have been emplazed upon the shield of any member of the family in battle and would also have been on their breast plate.  Today all family people whose sir name is Bundy and whose origin is from England would be entitled to bear this family Crest.  Herodry in other countries such as Italy and France may have variations of the family name and have a different family crests.

Olga of Kiev
Olga of Kiev - Holy Equal-to-the-Apostles Olga  - Born: c. 890 - Died: 11 July 969 (aged 79) in Kiev - Honored in: Russian Eastern Orthodoxy and Roman Catholicism
ruler of Kievan Rus' as regent (945–c. 963) for her son, Svyatoslav.
Olga, a Pskov woman of Varangian extraction, married the future Igor of Kiev, arguably in 903. The Primary Chronicle gives 879 as her date of birth, which seems unlikely, given the birth of her only son probably some 65 years after that date. After Igor's death, Olga ruled Kievan Rus as regent (945-c. 963) for their son, Svyatoslav.

daughter of:
Lion Gardiner - 1599 & Merrichjen (Mary) Willemson Deurcant - born at Woerden, Netherlands about 1601. She died in 1665 in East Hampton, New York. She was buried next to her husband - daughter of:  the daughter of Dericke Willemsen Deurcant and Hachin Bastiens
Lion Gardiner b:1599 in Eng - Lion Gardiner was first proprieter of Gardiner's Island, having purchased it from the Indians and received grant from King Charles
Lion Gardiner was a military engineer who was contracted by Gov. John Winthrop in 1635 to build a fort and lay out a town, which would become Old Saybrook.  He arrived in what is now Old Saybrook in March, 1636 along with his wife, Mary and began to build a palisade.  His wife gave birth to his son, David in April, the first recorded birth of an English child in Connecticut.  - See also Lion Gardiner in Wikipedia
A military engineer in service of the Prince of Orange in the Netherlands, he was hired by the Connecticut Company in 1635 to oversee construction of fortifications in the new colony. He finished and commanded the Saybrook Fort at the mouth of the Connecticut River during the Pequot War of 1636–1637.  In 1639 he purchased from the Montaukett tribe an island which they called Manchonat, located between the North Fork, Suffolk County, New York and South Fork, Suffolk County, New York. The original grant by which Gardiner acquired proprietary rights in the island made it an entirely separate and independent "plantation," in no way connected either with New England or New York. He was thus empowered to draft laws for Church and state. He called it the Isle of Wight. It has since become known as Gardiners Island.

In 1660 he wrote a firsthand account, Relation of the Pequot Warres. The manuscript was lost among various state archives until rediscovered in 1809; it was first published in 1833.
Lion Gardiner
note:        The name Duercant, in its variety of spelling, is mentioned in the records as early as 1418, for on 27 February of that year Willem Duercant attaches his own seal to a document in behalf of the sheriff of "Gherwerscoep" (about 4 miles N.E. of Woerden in the province of Utrecht) who possibly had no seal of his own. This seal has Willem b. Duercant's name on it, and shows a fess and in chief a label with three points. During the following century another Willem Duercant is mentioned on 6 June 1519 a a landgenoot (landowner)in the landcourt district of Naaldwijk, 12 miles W.N.w. of Rotterdam, in a charter in the same collection as above. And about 50 years later there must have been again another Willem Duercant, whose son Dirck Willemsz. Duercant (the father of Lion Gardiner's wife) was in 1603 schepen at Woerden. According to the Orphan Chamber record Willem Duercant had tow other sons besides Dirck, viz. Pieter and Elbert Duercant.
      The parents of Lion Gardiner's belonged to the magistrate families of the small city of Woerden, at that time in the Province of Utrecht, at present in South Holland. Dirck was a schepen there in 1603 but died prior to 7 October 1607. His wife Haechje Bastiaens had a brother Pons Gerritsz.
