Jonathan Webster wrote:According to Arnaud Bunel's blog regarding the rues of Paris, these arms:
are the Arms of the Casimir-Perier family, and thus also of President Casimir-Perier. Does anyone know anything about these Arms? Were they granted or assumed pre-revolution or later?


I suspect that they were granted to his great grandfather Claude, who was a prominent banker and one of the founders of the Banque de France.

Were arms being granted in France during the late 18th century? I would have expected them to be assumed, as they generally were for most of French history.
