I recently inherited 2 Knights Templar swords and haven't a clue who the men
named on them are. Don't even know who willed them to me.
They showed up by UPS and the return address was a PO Box in Illinois.
They had my name and address on them so they were meant for me.
Any ideas on how to run the men down? I have searched the internet
until I am blue in the face. I have always known my family was Templars
but who these people are I haven't a clue. Help please.......

Already been to the Mason's as we have a huge temple here. Took the swords with me and figured they might have a list or point me in the right direction.
No luck, of course they ask if they could display the swords. The old feller were so sweet it was hard to say no. They were like kids with a new toy, bless them.
There were 3 swords in the original box, but one turned out to be a horror.
The name had been filed off and with great vigor. This perplexed us some what, and the evening we received the swords all hell broke loose.
My daughter, being curious, was holding the obliterated sword looking for a clue as to who it might belong to. We have an ebony dolphin about 2 feet tall, it flew off the shelf and hit her on the head and shoulder. The damage was so great she is still under going therapy for her shoulder. The doctor was amazed to see the imprint of the dolphin's head cleary on the back part of her shoulder.
Anyway, there was a black cloud even nonbelivers could see hanging in the corner of our living room. I took the sword out to a shed on the property and locked it away and contacted a museum back east about it. They agreed to take the thing.
I shipped it out the next day. All has been silent, that was 4 months ago.

Hi Donajhi wow what a story. I can just see this happening. I hope you find the information that your seeking. I found a couple of forums that may be of some help. There's so much to look at it's overwhelming. I used the top one when I looked into purchasing a certain sword but thought it was informative. We also have lots of folks posting in the Medieval Gateway about swords. Someone may be able to answer your question there. It's good to see you.

Do let us know what you find out. Keep safe.lol.. thumbs_up.gif

Rindy,
I have check out the two websites you gave me.

Swords Forum is about medieval, antique, military, and historical swords, but
offer not a word on how to trace the Templar named on the sword.

Sword Link is mostly about when the swords were made. I've already
had them carbon dated one is from 1850-1871 and the second is from
1893-1923.
Again no list of Templar's names.

Thanks a million for the info and if you come across anymore sites please
let me know........... biggrin.gif

Hi Donajhi I am sorry these didn't help you. Did you happen to ask this question in the Sword Forum International? These people should be able to direct you. Was hoping you could get a link from a link or something. Darn.. I will keep my eyes open. Good luck to you.

If they are only dated back to the 19th century then how can they be knights templar. ?

the knights demplar order did not survive past the 12th century. ?

glaswegian;

Many of the Templars survived the puging of their Order. Some sought refuge in Portugal and renamed the Order the Knights of Christ. Others are said to have fled to Scotland where they were welcomed by the Bruce and fought with him at Bannockburn aiding in the defeat of the English. There are even legends of the Templars coming to North America. This is not beyond the realm of possibility as the Templars had vast fleets at their command plus ports on the Atlantic from which to launch them. The Vikings were in Newfoundland 500 years before Columbus sailed why not others.
