Edward Gregge, Gentleman, 1637.

Mrs ........ Gregge, 1634.
Daughter to Edward Gregg of Chester, dyed the 22nd January 1633[-4].
Arms: Or, three trefoils between two chevronels Sable; a martlet of the first for difference.   

[The blazon for the martlet is, in this instance, quite specific however, it is, in my humble opinion, rather unfortunate that the mark of cadency is recorded as Or. This leaves little option but to place it upon the chevronel thus forcing it to be rather small]                                                                                         

 


Mr. Robert Gregge. [brother to Thomas Gregge of Bradley]
Arms: Quarterly 1 and 4, Or, three trefoils between two chevronels Sable; 2, Argent, a tiger statant Sable, a crescent for difference; 3, Argent, a stork Sable, beaked and legged Gules, a crescent for difference; over all four quarterings, a mullet for difference.
