This certifies that the heraldic arms of James O'Connell which marshal the arms of Pacheco and O'Connell are registered and described by the blazon below
James O'Connell of Spain and Quebec, Canada is the son of Daniel Pacheco (adopted the surname O'Connell in lieu of Pacheco upon his marriage to Maggie as he was disowned by his father) of Spain and Margaret (Maggie) O'Connell of Spain.
He married Catherine (Kitty) O'Connell and moved from Spain to Quebec, Canada. He had a son Michael O'Connell, of Quebec, Canada and Michigan, USA, and a grandson Lawrence O'Connell, of Michigan, USA, and a great-granddaughter, Judith Ellen O'Connell of Battle Creek, Michigan, USA, to whom these arms as blazoned were created by combining the two sets of arms found in two family ex libris with James name on them both via quartering.
Both the Irish O'Connell arms and crest (Derrynane) and the Pacheco arms exist in family a family bible and heirlooms in an ex libris with James name attached to each, though the arms were not together. As he was the eldest son of Daniel Pacheco, who adopted the surname O'Connell in lieu of Pacheco upon his marriage to Maggie as he was disowned by his father for this marriage, and Margaret (Maggie) O'Connell of Spain, we decided to place both arms together in a quartering. The Pacheco arms in the ex libris are very similar to the de Carralbo line of the Pachecos, but not exactly. As such, we left them as in the ex libris for differencing.
