Volume 12 of the Babb Unabridged Series is now available! This installment takes a deep look into the 7th Genetically distinct Babb lineage. The book is available for sale using these links to Create Space and also via Amazon.
The Gryphons of Halberton, Devon are the 7th DNA-Proven Lineage of Babbs. This 7th DNA-Proven lineage is also known as Devon Pedigree 05, and is small but plucky with a number of distant destinations as the family spread out across the world. The line dates to John Babb born bef 1648. It is important to note that this is not the only lineage of Babbs in the County (Shire) of Devon. So, pay extremely close attention when drawing connections.
The Crest used to represent this great house of Babbs is NOT historic, but a modern interpretation of what a crest for this family might look like. Using mascots will help everyone to remember which lineage they are a part of. Only lines proven via DNA have a mascot and crest. In this case, I have drawn upon a mythological beast, which shares a lions body with the head of an Eagle. You will notice a striking resemblance in the lion’s body with that of the Devon Falcons, though the two should not be confused. The purpose of the mascots/crests is to help keep our conversations about these lines from merging accidentally.
