Aboab Family Crest

This is the ABOAB FAMILY CREST, as sent to me in the mail by Simon Abuhab of San Paulo, Brazil. There are two versions to the origin of the crest:

1) The Jewish Encyclopedia says that the crest belonged to the Aboab de Fonseca family.

2) Simon Abuhab believes that the crest actually belonged to Abraham Aboab of Pelot Aragonia (Spain), who had received properties from King James in 1263.

In either case, please note that the crest does not belong to us. Simon just uses it as a reference to the oldest Aboab family he knows of.
