Supposedly one of the oldest family crests (left) and a more recent version (ie recent centuries) right. (Click each to enlarge) These were obtained from a United States on-line firm.

The more recent shield itself (the top right one) has been obtained from two sources, which may or may not verify its accuracy.

Bensemann descendant and amateur historian Brian Hunter has found a third crest (far right):

While there is no evidence that any of the shields are wrong, much hype and even misinformation abounds about family crests. For example the helmets and the rest of the designs outside the shield proper of the two above should be viewed as little more than a moderndesigner's imagination.

The more recent shield itself (the top right one) has been obtained from two sources, which may or may not verify its accuracy.
 

 

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