Excerpt from The Messinger Family in Europe and America

According to Burke and other authorities, Massinger, Messenger, Massenger and Messinger all seem to be the same, noted first of Gloucestershire. Arms - Ar., a chevron between three close hemlets and in Rudder's History of Gloucestershire, page 597, is this notics In the church at Painswick, 6 miles south of Gloucester, against the north wall, are several memorials of the Massinger family, formerly of Gloucester, whose arms are: Argent a chevron gules between three helmets sable.' In the Herald's college, London, the same arms are entered as borne by John Messenger of Newisham, county of York, who died in 1616, aged 70 years, and was buried at Kirk Ravensworth. Two of his sons, Henry and Anthony, were killed in the service of King Charles I, and another, John Messenger, Esq., born in 1590, was the owner of the Fountain Abbey estate, near Ripon, in 1627. His crest was, a dove with an olive branch, and the motto - Nancie Pam's. But other arms were home by the Messengers of Norfolk at the visitation of that county in 1664, viz: Vert, on a beid' engrailed argent, a plain bend of the field, a bordure engrailed of the second.
