Posting for the first time in the partially revived forum, and hoping people will be able to read it:

At the Glasgow international heraldry/genealogy Congress last August, Carl-Thomas von Christierson delivered a paper on “Funeral Escutcheons with Ancestral Arms in Finland.”  A funeral escutcheon (in Swedish called begravningsvapen or huvudbaner) is the Swedish and Swedo-Finnish counterpart of a hatchment, except that instead of being painted on a flat surface it is carved and painted, and mounted on a pole where it was carried in the funeral procession.  Like English hatchments, the funeral escutcheon was later mounted in the church where the person was buried.

I recently discovered that such begravningsvapen exist for two of the governors of New Sweden, which was situated around the head of Delaware Bay in the mid-17th century. 

The first is for Johan Bj√∂rnsson Printz, governor 1643-53, probably the most distinguished of New Sweden’s governors.  The arms are “Or a saltire couped between two stars in chief and base azure.”  The escutcheon is mounted in Bottnaryd Church in West Gothland province, near Skara, where Printz is buried. (First image below; apologies for small size.)

The other is for Printz’s son-in-law, Johan Papegoja, acting governor 1654-55.  The arms are canting, “Argent a popinjay perched on a branch proper.”  It’s at Tidaholm Church, also in West Gothland. (Second image below)

Thanks, Seb. 

Actually, when I say the arms are canting, that’s not quite true.  Like a number of ennobled families during this period, the Papegojas seem to have taken their surname from the arms, rather than the other way around.  So I guess we could say that the name is a cant on the arms.

Do you know if there are any surviving tombstones of New Sweden’s colonists and, if so, if there is any armorial content?

PS if I am reading the new forum correctly, this thread currently has 774 views…I would have hoped that this would have translated into a greater number of replies!

I have no idea.  The bloody thing is utterly exasperating.

I’ve never seen any reported with arms on them.  Non-armorial, I have no idea.

I share your frustration, Joseph. As you will be aware, the login screen asks for an email address rather than the user name we have been used to with the old forum. All my attempts to log in, using all the possible combinations of email address and password I can imagine, have failed.

As a last resort, I have re-registered with a different user name. I know I am not the only one who has this problem but I am guessing that not everyone wants to go to the trouble of registering again and, by so doing, lose the ability to manage the content they previously posted.

I fear - and I think we are seeing it happen - that the AHS forum will wither and die as a result.

[I should also add that I would have posted these thoughts in an appropriate sub-forum, rather than hijack this thread, but I can’t seem to find one]
