PREFACE 



\ 



12811 C£ 



Many years ago the late J. G. Nichols, F.S.A., whose good work 
u in genealogical matters will never be forgotten, suggested to me that 
^an investigation of the numerous unidentified Coats in Blomefield's 
S.W Norfolk would be a very useful piece of work, and ever since I have 
^vfrom time to time noted anything which proved or identified early 
K^Coats in the hope that I might some day undertake such work. 

Now that my working days are drawing very rapidly to a close 
(I am in my 75th year) I think it best that such memoranda should 
find their way into print for the benefit of the next generation, so I 
~ am now passing them through the Press. 

I have included the names of the gentry of 1433, given by Fuller, 
■ and a similar list for 1500 given by Mason (vol. i., p. 110, from Coxe's 
U MSS. British Museum 155, fol. 365), and of the High Sheriffs, for all 
r^ these no doubt bore arms, though they have not come down to us. 

When quoting from Dashwood's Sheriffs I have intentionally 

v used the expression "ascribed by him," for I fancy that in the cases 

' v> of many early sheriffs he has assumed that they bore the arms which 

v their descendants undoubtedly bore, and this much discounts the 

historical value of his book. 

I have thought it best to restrict my list to all coats proved to 

have been borne in the county before the first Herald's Visitation 

of 1563. It may be asked why I did not include the arms borne at 

Xv such visitation, but I have more than a suspicion that the heralds 

! granted many new Coats at such visitation. 

I had intended to have brought out this collection in my series 
of Norfolk Handbooks, but while working at it I found the material 
grew so rapidly that it was impossible to do so, and I have there- 
fore decided to print it separately and to issue in another part a rough 
Vjordinary. My chief object in printing this and the ordinary is to 
\enable future antiquaries to identify the very numerous unnamed Coats 
which occur in Blomefield and the other topographical works on 
Norfolk, and in Church windows, monuments, brasses, <S£c. 

In the list of abbreviations will be found the names of the sources 
from which I have mostly collected the following Coats. 

For great help in the revision of the proofs I am much indebted 
to Capt. E. E. Dorling, F.S.A., the well-known authority on Heraldry, 
author of the " Heraldry of the Church," 1913, " Leopards of England," 
1913, <S£c, who very luckily for me is stationed just now in Norwich. 
Of course this compilation cannot be considered a perfect one, 
but it will be better than none, and I shall be grateful to anybody who 
will add more Coats, either by sending them to me direct or to the 
City Librarian, Norwich, in order that they may be written in the inter- 
leaved copy of this work, which I have deposited at the Public Library 
of Norwich. Exact references to the authority for the new Coats must 
be given. 

The second part will include an "ordinary" of all the Coats 
mentioned in the first under the headings of : 
Bars and Barry. Chiefs. Pales. 

Bends and Bendlets. Crosses. Piles. 

Bordures. Fesses. Quarterly of 4. 

Chevrons. Orles. 

It would have been as well to have exactly followed the methods 
of Papworth in compiling this, but I felt that the labour would be too 
great for me, so I hope this rougher way will serve the purpose of those 
who want to identify old monuments, windows, and brasses.

58 List of Coat Armour used in Norfolk 



The foregoing list has about 1,617 entries. I included in it all 
those named in the two Lists of Gentry of 1433 and 1500, as printed 
by Fuller and Mason, on the assumption that anyone who was 
described as a gentleman at these dates was probably entitled to bear 
arms, and that as my work progressed I should be able to find out 
what such arms were. 

As to this I find I was wrong, for of the 379 odd names in the 
1433 list I can only guess at arms for about a quarter of them. 

Nearly all in the 1500 list are of men we know were armigerous. 

Consequently I have come to the conclusion (which I am glad to 
say is shared by the Rev. G. H. Holley) that the 1433 list was not 
made up of the actual gentry, but should have been rather styled a 
list of the more important citizens and others as well as of the gentry. 
This view is borne out by the fact that I find it includes the names 
of many local mayors, sheriffs, bailiffs, and other officials. 

Deducting, therefore, from the 1617 entries three-quarters, or 
283 of its 379 names in the 1433 li st » we have left about 1344 
undoubted old coats to be analyzed and indexed in my next part. 

Such part will contain a Classified Index, or Ordinary, with all 
possible cross references to charges, which I hope will prove abso- 
lutely fool-proof so that the youngest antiquary ought to be able to 
identify the owner of any coat he finds in his church, whether on 
monument, or window, or in old houses. 

Another feature will be an attempt to classify the various coats 
and try to ascertain, as the late Mr. Ellis did, whether many of them 
were variants of the superior lords of those who bore them. Now 
that so many valuable books of reference, such as the Calendar of 
Inquisitions post mortem, and the Feudal Aids, have been issued 
which were not available to Mr. Ellis, I hope the results will be 
more conclusive than what he showed. 

Many of the statements in the earlier Herald's pedigrees, such 
as Clere, Cornwallis, Pastou, and Wodehouse must of course be taken 
with the greatest caution as to the alleged arms quartered by them, 
which I cannot trace ever existed outside such pedigrees. 

I cannot conclude these remarks without again expressing my 
many obligations to Captain E. E. Dorliug for the great trouble he 
has taken in correcting my proofs. Without his help this work 
would have simply teemed with inaccuracies, and his weird and un- 
canny memory of some coats, and his intuition as to others have 
fairly astonished me. If we have differed as to the method of treat- 
ing Blomefield's errors I can't help it, for I felt I ought not to omit 
the coats given by him, however wrong they may seem to be, as his 
descriptions are what he thought he saw, and indeed may have seen, 
(for stonemasons and glaziers are not infallible), and if I had omitted 
them altogether I should have been accused of inaccuracy in this 
compilation. So I thought it best to put them all in, right or 
wrong, and specify by inverted commas or otherwise what I con- 
cluded came in the latter category.
