The crest of a boar was used by many British families, many of which came from Scotland and Ireland. Prominent families using this crest included Guinness, Hammond, Fitzgerald, Vere and Bacon. However, the most likely candidate family for commissioning these chairs were the Boscawens of Cornwall, who were related to the ancient West Country family of Albalanda who also used this crest.
