This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.

cannot help thinking that this impalement is a canting coat, and 
that the second and third quarterings represent tne wheat, 
ground into flour by means oi the sails, on the first and fourth, 
and that the original Loverd may have been a miller. At any 
rate, this impalement clearly proves that "Azure, a garb or," 
or as BL Norf quotes it, " Gules, a garb or," has nothing what- 
ever to do with More, because, if it be a veritable coat at all, 
it was brought in by Loverd.

I was of opinion, at first, from the style of the stonework 
around this shield, and the formation of it, that it might have 
been at one time over an altar tomb in the church. It bears the 
coat of Sir Christopher Heydon and his second wife (he had 
three) Temperance, daughter of Sir Wymond Carew of Anthony. 
It is probably a portion of stonework from the hall.

This shield is so much worn that I had gi-eat difficulty in 
distinguishing the quarterings, but through the kind help of my 
friend, the Rev. C. R. Manning, I can now safely assert that 
the above description is a correct one. I am indebted to him 
for an extract from the Sussex Archwo logical Collections^ vol. viii., 
p. 122, which contains a pedigree and long memoir of Lord 
Hoo and Hastyngs, and it is therein stated that the usual 
bearing of that nobleman was Hoo and St, Omer quarterly, 
with St. Leger on an escutcheon of pretence, which, it says, 
was on his plate as a Knight of the Garter; impaling, Sable, 
three crosses pattee or, for Wychingham, the first wife (it ought 
to be " Ennine, on a chief sable three crosses pattee argent") ; 
and afterwards, Or, a lion rampant sable, for JFells (it should 
have been with a double tail.) He did not wear the griffin 
as it appears on his grandfather's and half-brother's seals, as 
a crest, but " a bull statant, quarterly sable and argent, horned 
or." Isabel St. Leger was an heiress, and the wife of Sir 
Thomas Hoo, who died 1380, whose son. Sir William Hoo, 
man-ied Alice de St. Omer, and Thomas, Lord Hoo and Hastings, 
was their grandson. Mr. Manning suggests that the escutcheon 
of pretence was an easy method of quartering, to save space 
and muddle. Jeffery Boleyn mamed Anne, daughter and coheir 
of Thomas, Lord Hoo and Hastings.

The inscription remains, "D°* John Curson militis, qui obiit 
20 die mensis Januarii, 1471, et D"^ Johe consortis suae quae 

obiit die mensis A. DnL 14 . . ." The latter date 

never was filled in. On the subject of the peculiar position of 
the quarterings and impalement on this brass I wrote to Notes 
and Queries in 1886, inquiring whether any other like example 
was known, to which letter I received no answer. I think 
shield 1 should be thus, Quarterly: — 1 and 4, Curson; 2 and 
3, Felton; impaling, Quarterly: — 1 and 4, Drury; 2 and 3, 
Swynfordy and that shield 3 should be Drury impaling Swynford, 
It is stated in Bl. Norf. viii. 190, Vis. of Norf, ii. 19, and Cotman's 
Brasses, 32, that Sir John Curson, to whose memory this brass 
was here placed, married Joan Bacon, which statement I believe 
to be entirely wrong, and that instead his wife was a daughter 
of Sir William Drury of Rougham, co. Suflblk. That Cui-son 
should quarter Felton would be quite right, for Sir John Curson 
of Beck Hall married Mary, daughter and heiress of Sir Thomas 
Felton, BLG. See Cart/tew's Launditch, i. 158. Drury might 
quarter Swynford, for Sir William Drury, ancestor of the 
Drurys of Rougham, married Katherine, daughter of Sir Ottes 
Swynford See Burke's Extinct Baronetcies, -p. 170. I think that 
some of the shields on the porch of Cley Church are a similar 
example of peculiar quartering and impalement.

the arms of Donsany Southwell (a younger son of Thomas 
Southwell of Spixworth), who, according to BL Norf, viii. 236, 
married Mary, daughter of Thomas Shuthwell of Biskton in

also for Donsany Southwell and his wife, but, in that case " the

BARTON ST. ANDREW. 

Tiles on the Floor at the East End of the Church. 

I. Lozengy and ermine; in chief a label of three, 

De Ferrers f 

In Bl Nor/, vii. 278, this pavement is mentioned, and it is stated 

that ''thereon are cinquen>ils, stars, mullets, lozengys, 

and ermine, &c."; vii. 280 states that these aams, "Lozengy 
argent and azure, on every lozenge azure a fleur-de-lis or," were 
in the church. I cannot but think that the "ermine spot" and 
"the fleur-de-lis" are one and the same. Paptoorth assigns to 
Sire William de Ferreres this coat, " Lozengy gules and or. It 
is certain from BL Norf. vii. 270, that " Lovels manor of Barton 
was given by William L to Hermerus de Ferrers." Tuddenham 
also bore "Lozengy ^es and argent," and this family had some 
slight connection with the place, see Bl vii. 277, but I think 
these tiles are of earlier date than that. There is a fireplace 
at Castle Rising castle decorated with them, and on the shields 
there are some well-known Norfolk coats. It is generally 
supposed that these tiles were made at Bawsey. 

IL Three crescents {Thorpe, Azure, three crescents argent.) 
The connection between this family and Barton must have 
been through the Bainards. See Vol. I. p. 183. Ralph Bainard, 
a Norman lord, had at the Conquest the grant of a capital 
manor here, now called Bainard's HalL — Bl Norf. vii. 277.

IV. Argent, a fesse dancett^e sable between three leopards'

" Restored in memory of Edward Beck, March 24, 1866." 

" The church here was built by Sir Robert Knowles, a famous 
general in the reigns of Edward III. and Richard II., in the 
wars in France, and on the screen are his arms with those of his 
wife, probably a Beverley." — BL Nor/, viii. 458. " The Beverley 
arms are associated with those of Sir Robert KnoUys inside this 
church, and were impaled with his repeatedly at Squlthorpe and 
other churches." — Nor/, Archy, viii. 25. "Sir Robert KnoUes 
provided for his own soul, the soul of his very dear wife 
Constance, and all Christian souls." — Her. and Oen. v. 296. 

Shields on the BatUementa of the South Aisle, comTnencing 
at the West End. 

V. A fesse dancett6e between three {Beverley ? 

See No. IV. The charges are very indistinct, but the outline 
is more like "an escallop" than "a leopard's face." They are 
drawn as " roses " or " cinquefoils " in Nor/. Archy. viii. 25, and 
Her. and Gen. v. 296, 298.) 

From the position of this shield as first in the sequence, there 
can be no doubt but that it is the coat of someone intimately 
connected with the place, or the building of the aisle, and thus 
it has been assigned to Constance Beverlej'^, Lady Knollys. See 
No. IV. 

VI. A cross engrailed (Gournay or Gurney, Argent, a cross 
engrailed gules.) 

"In the 35th of Edward I., John de Gournay was Lord, 
Patron, and Rector of this Parish and Church." — Bl. Nor/. 
viii. 452. Having built the present chancel of Harpley Church 
he was buried therein, dying in the 6th of Edward III., 1332, 
and was commemorated by a portraiture in brass, now un- 
fortunately torn away, but the stone and its inscription are 
represented in the Record o/ the House o/ Gournay, p. 344; 
Her. and Gen. v. 298 ; Nor/ Archy. viii. 19. 

VII. A gridiron, St. Lawrence. The patron saint of Harpley 
church. 

VOL. II.] s 



250 CHURCH HERALDRY OF NORFOLK. 

VIII. Same as No. VII. 

IX. A fesse between three roses, Uphall ? 

This coat is on the sedilia of Wickmere church, vol. ii., p. 61, 
and also on a buttress of Docking church. 

From the important position of this shield in the sequence, 
it must be, I think, the coat of some family connected with the 
place. There are three manors, Gournays, Calthorpes, and 
Uphall. At Wickmere also there is an Uphall manor, and in 
1261 Hoger de Uphall granted a messuage of 50 acres and the 
moiety of the advowson, with the reversion of the land which 
Clarice, widow of Roger, son of Ralf de Uphall, held in the 
coimty. — BL Nor/, vi. 457. 

X. On a chevron (Knolles ? See No. III. The 

charges are very indistinct, indeed I cannot discern them 
though I examined the shield very closely.) 

For the connection between Sir Robert Knolles and this place, 
see the account of these shields in Norf, Archy, viii. 25 ; Her. and 
Gen, V. 296 ; Record of the Home of Ooumay. 

XI. Chequy {De Warenne or Warren^ Chequy, or and azure.) 
The Conqueror granted this town to William, Earl Warren. 

XII. Same as No. XI. 

XIII. Quarterly, a bendlet {Clavering f Quarterly, or and 
gules, a bend sable. These arms are taken from Le Neve's 
papers, and given in Three Norf, Arm,, Cod. A, 249.) 

I cannot account for this shield being here. It is attributed in 
Her, and Oen, and Norf. Archy, to Lacey, Earl of Lincoln, who 
was the chief lord to whom Sir Robert Knolles owed service at 
Pontefract. 

XIV. Same as No. XII. 

XV. A cross of lozenges ( Ufford ? Sable, a cross engrailed or. 
Burke has it in one place, " Sable, a cross lozengy or.") 

This is the only instance I have met with in which the coat of 
UfEord is carved **of lozenges" instead of "engrailed," but Her. 
and Oen, v. 300, says, that in blazon the lozengy form was 
frequently connected with the engrailed, the latter being, in 
fact, the modem treatment of the former. If that be the case 
the cause why it was so drawn here is obvious, to distinguish 
it from the coat of Goumay. See No. VI. It was intended 
probably for Sir Robert Ufford, Earl of Suffolk. 

XVI. Same as No. XV. 

XVII. A fesse between two chevrons ( Walpok ? Or, on a 
fesse between two chevrons sable, three cross-crosslets of the 
field.) 

It is impossible to assign this coat with certainty to any one 



FREEBRIDGE LYNN HUNDRED. 251 

of the many families in Norfolk who bore it, such as Fitzwalter, 
Gerbridge, or Tendring. Her, and Oen. v. 300, says, it was 
probably intended for Walpole, the original coat of that family 
being, " Or, a fesse between two chevronels sable,'* and the cross- 
crosslets of the Earls of Orford, the difference of a junior line." 

XVIII. Same as No. XVII. 

XIX. Three chevronels (Clare or Fitz Gilbert, Earl of Clare, 
Or, three chevronels gules. See Great Bikcham church.) 

"Walter Giffard, Earl of Buckinghamshire, was succeeded by 
a son of his own name, who dying without issue in the reign 
of Henry II., his great inheritance was divided among his sisters 
and coheirs, one of whom, Rohais, brought the lordship of 
Gt. Bircham to Richard Fitz Gilbert, Earl of Clare."— £/. Nor/. 
X. 292. "Gilbert de Clare, Earl of Clare, on his marriage with 
Joan, daughter of King Edward I., granted it to the said king." — 
Bi. Aorf. X. 292. 

XX. Same as No. XIX 

XXI. Three cinquefoils (Bardolf, Azure, three cinquefoils or.) 
The family of Bardolf held land in many parts of this county, 

and their coat of arms is still to be seen in and on many a 
church. 

XXII. Same as No. XXI. 

XXIII. A fesse engrailed between three Catherine wheels 



"These arms, the field argent and the charges sable, are 
attributed to Casteler, and the same arms with those tinctures 
were in Sculthorp, Mundford, North Barsham, and Cromer, in 
each case accompanying Knolles, and at Mundford they are 
quartered by Tindall." — Her. and Gen. v. 301. 

. XXIV. A fesse between three pick-axes {Pigott ? Gules, a 
fesse between three picks or.) 

"A family of this name was early settled in Framingham 
Pigot in Norfolk, and one branch removed to Stradsett, near 
Downham Market." — Her. and Gen. v. 301. 

XXV. Three ostrich feathers erect with escrolls, Edicard, the 
Black Prince. 

The exact counterpart of this shield is on one of the misereres 
in St. Margaret's church. King's Lynn, and on the nave roof at 
South Creake. Her. and Gen. v. 301, says, "This is what was 
dalled by the Black Prince in his will, when describing his 
intended tomb at Canterbury, his arms for peace, and it doubtless 
was erected at Ilarpley in commemoration of the same gallant 
chieftain, the friend and patron of Sir Robert Knolles."

XXIX. Gyrony of twelve {Bassingbourne, Gyrony of twelve, 
azure and or, vol. i. 20.) 

This coat is, throughout the countv, blazoned, both like this 
and " Gyrony of eight." See No. XXXIII. Her. and Gen. v. 302, 
says, ** that until a certain period the pieces of the gyrony were 
always unnumbered, and that families using the device would 
represent it each way, but that in the reign of Edw. III. the 
numbers were specified." 

XXX. A bend between six cross-crosslets fitch6e (Howard, 
Gules, a bend between six cross-crosslets fitch^e argent) 

' The Howards were, at this time, located at Winch and Wiggen- 
hall, and owned much land. 

XXXI. A fesse between three cross-crosslets {Beauchamp f 
Gules, a fesse between six cross-crosslets or.) 

This shield, properly blazoned, was in Sculthorpe Church; 
still, I have great doubt in assigning it to that family here. 

XXXII. Six escallops, three, two, and one (Scales, Gules, six 
escallops, three, two, and one, or.) 

This family was located at Middleton. 

XXXIII. Gyrony of eight [BasBingboume^ Gyrony of eight, 
or and azure. See No. XXIX.) 

The family of Trusbut, residing at Buncton Holme about 
this time, bore "Gyrony of eight, azure and ermine," and to 
this family Her. and Oen. v. 303, attributes this shield, but I 
could distinguish no sign of the ** ermine " in the carving, nor 
have I met with this Trusbut coat carved in stone in any 
Norfolk church, though it was, says BL Norf.^ in the windows of 
Marham and Fincham. 

XXXIV. Same as XXXIII. 

XXXV. Paly of twelve, in sinister canton, a lion passant 
guardant (Longcaster ? Paly of seven, argent and gules, on a 
canton of the last a lion passant guardant of the first.) 

I cannot account satisfactorily for this coat at alL 

XXXVI. Same as No. XXXV. 

XXXVII. Chequy, on a crescent three cinquefoils (Bumham ? 
The illustration of this very curious shield is given with the 
rest in Her. and Gen. v. 305, and Norf. Archy. viii. 25.) 

I have not been able to identify this coat, though it is assigned 
to the family of Bumham in both the above-named works. They 
were descended from the De Warennes, and it is quite likely 



FREEBRIDGE LYNN HUNDRED. 253 

that ** the field " would be *' chequy," and they might use a

" Stafford's Manor in this town was possessed in tlie 14tli of 
Edward I. by Gilbert de Glare. On the death of the last of that

between three sisters and coheirs, and this lordship came to 
Margaret or Maud, who married first Piers de Gaveston, and 
second Hugh de Audley. On his death it descended to his only 
daughter Margaret, wife of Ralph, Lord Stafford. In this family 
it continued till the attainder of Edward Stafford, Duke of 
Buckingham, beheaded in 1521."— 5/. Norf. ix. 282, 283. It is

left his property to his niece Anne, the daughter of his brother 
Edmund Butts, by his wife Anne Bures, another of the co- 
heiresses of Bures of Acton, which niece Anne married Nicholas 
Bacon, Esq., of Redgrave in Suffolk, who with her husband and
