Gresgarth Hall

Possible ancestors in the Curwen/Culwen family from Lancastershire. Another family of Corwins in the US are claiming the motto, descended from them, of "Si Je Nestoy" (if not for me, or if I was not there) after an incident where Sir Gilbert II of Culwen allegedly saved Edward I from capture or death.

I like it, as family mottoes go. I am still torn by Fowl's gold is power, and Groening's knowledge brings fear, as well as the anonymous quip beware the wrath of a patient man.

I rather like the idea of a testosteroney sort of family creed, but I guess I'll have to see. Crystal's vote is for this is a learning opportunity, which has menacing overtones if you think about it too long
