The Downie Coat of Arms

Downey (1931) in his book relating to the Protestant Downey’s in Northern Ireland depicts the Downie Coast of Arms as registered by Lord Lyon and Ulster Kings of Arms as:


A System of Heraldry Alexander Nisbet Published 1722 described the Downie Coat of arms as “Azure, a fess engrailed between three boars’ heads erased”. (Reference) 


One of the more common Coats of Arms associated with the Downey and Downie surname is actually the Coat of Arms of the Irish O'Brien family who the Downey's of southern Ireland have an association with.
