Hello I am trying to find out some information on this family crest:

enter image description here

Is this crest related to this mon?

I have a full samurai suit of armor with this mark.

    Which one is number 11? Is there nothing at all further about it that you know, such as it's name or description in Japanese? – Pieter Geerkens Feb 18 '20 at 10:12

    Does this answer to the older question on History:SE (Meaning of samurai crest / symbol) answer your question? – sempaiscuba Feb 18 '20 at 12:44

    @PieterGeerkens It is the four dotted squares (rotated in a big circle), which is also illustrated at commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Maruni_sumitate_yotsume.svg and may be related to the mon at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ky%C5%8Dgoku_Takatsugu – Henry Feb 18 '20 at 14:16
  • Please add that to the question; it is really not the done thing to ask people to read the comment string to understand your question. (Apologies to @Henry - I had a senior moment and misread the attribution; I still think the information should be in the question.) – MCW Feb 18 '20 at 15:36
  • I know nothing about Japanese clans so this is solely what I was able to dig up. But I think it could have belonged to the Teramura clan. See this Japanese wikipedia page (use the translate) to get more information. ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E5%AF%BA%E6%9D%91%E6%B0%8F – ed.hank Feb 18 '20 at 15:51
