HERALDRY IN SILVERWARE
This crest is on a silver spoon from London 1711-12 by David Willaume I, the famous Huguenot silversmith.
The engraved crest is a half image of a man with a beard and a Scottish cap holding an ox yoke over his right shoulder the crest of the Hay family in Balhousie or Leys Scotland.
It might have belonged to John Hay, 2nd Marquess of Tweeddale (1645 - 20 April 1713) who was a representative peer after the union of England and Scotland in 1707. Which would explain the crown which is either a baron's or that of a lord of Parliament in the Scots peerage, and a Scottish Crest on a piece of London silver.
