Crest History In the 17th to 19th centuries, the period known to armorists as the Decadence, arms were embellished to record personal or family history, often in ways that ignored the traditions of heraldry's origins. Arms were designed for organizations far removed from war-schools, universities, guilds, churches, fraternal societies, and even modern corporations-to symbolize the meanings of their mottoes or to hint at their histories. During the 20th century, however, there was a return to the classical simplicity of the early heraldic art, exemplified in the medieval rolls that were compiled when arms were slowly being organized into a disciplined system.

The crest short history: A crest is the object placed on top of the helmet and bound to it by what is known as a wreath of the colors, a twist of cloth (part of the mantling) of the two principal colors of the arms. Sometimes, instead of the wreath, the crest will use a coronet or a chapeau (a velvet cap of maintenance lined with ermine). Crests were at first made of leather, later of light wood, and yet later of more valuable materials. They were at first borne in tournaments, and they became general in families in England from the 16th century when the venal heralds of that period persuaded crestless families to acquire the addition for a payment. Today a crest is automatically included in any grant of arms made in England, Scotland or Ireland.
