Melissa (The Office of Oversight) has traced her lineage back to a John Edwards, b.1680 in England.  This person bore the Edwards coat of arms.  Since there is direct lineage proven, Dagostinia lays claim to the privilege of bearing said arms.  The first province split shall bear the name Edwardia in honor.

Further research has indicated that Melissa can also trace lineage to the Feith, Hegeman, and van Holthe coats of arms as well.


Surname meanings:

Edwards - prosperity guard

Feith - one who is willing

Hegeman - a keeper of game
