Families covered: Weston of Callew Weston, Weston of Canings (Bishop Cannings), Weston of Colyton (Colliton), Weston of Somerby

Except as shown, we do not know what connection if any there was between the families shown on this page (they share the page for our convenience) or between them and that shown on Weston01 (and continuations) or Weston03. The coat of arms reported for the family shown in the top section indicates that that family at least was not connected to either of those other two 'main' families. We have not seen coats of arms for any of the other families shown on this page except for the family shown in the bottom section whose arms bear a similarity of design but not of colours or content to that used by the family of Weston03..
