I have heard a story about the origin of our family (Cunningham) crest. The story that I have heard is that the crest has a fork on it and thre is a banner on the crest that says over fork over. The story I have heard is that an ancester hid Robert the Bruce in a hay stack when the british were looking for him. our ancester to prove that the king was not there passed the pitch fork through the hay stack to prove the king was not there. The crest was given to the family after Robert the Bruce became king of scotland. Can you confirm this story and give me the persons name.
