Brief History:
The word livery comes from the French livrée meaning to liberate or bestow. It was used to describe giving to retainers, who provided domestic service to the nobles and aristocrats.
Many of the crest used on livery buttons descended from the crest which knights wore on top of their helmets. It enabled friend and foe to recognize each other in battle.
Identifying livery buttons can be difficult because often the crest is shared by many families.
