Plaisted Coat of Arms

This is the original Plaisted Coat of Arms that once hung in "The Coopers Arms" pub in Woolwich, London.   It seems that is was owned by Thomas Plaisted, so is well over 200 years old.  Today it lives in America with an ancestor of Thomas Wilkes Plaisted. 
Thank you to George for kindly sending me this photo, it is a Coat of Arms that I have never seen before.
I originally obtained it for my nephew.
I hope to get a better image sorted via Rootschat photo forum, due to the fact I am still learning how to use Photoshop Elements.

Well with a big thank you to Tommy from Rootschat we now have a Poster type photo of this coat of arms.  Tommy has done a remarkable job.

If you would like a copy please get in touch with me and I will see what I can do.

Another DNA. Do you think they are sister?

Just had another two photos sent to me one of Lizzie Hamilton and the other of Margaret Ann Hamilton.  Margaret Ann married Walter Benjamin Plaisted.  Alan the researcher involved with this line is wanting to prove 100% that they are sister.
Lizzie stayed in Ireland and married Matthew.  Margaret Ann came to Australia.  Please tell me what you think
