Walthall of Wistaston

June 18th, 2017 · No Comments

The latest entry to the Visitations of 1663 is that of Walthall of Wistaston which, like many other examples, has changed over the course of the Visitations. In this instance, the hawks have changed to Cornish choughs.

The 1663 record is:

Walthall of Wistaston
Arms: Or, a chevron Vert between three Cornish choughs Sable beaked and legged Gules.

 

The 1613 version is:

Walthall of Nantwich and Wistaston
Arms: Quarterly –
1 & 4 Or, a chevron Vert between three hawks close Sable.
2 Gules, a chevron between three birds’ heads erased Argent, for Marchomley.
3 Azure, a lion rampant Argent within a bordure engrailed Or, a crescent for difference, for Crew

Crest: An arm embowed, vested Gules, gloved Argent, the hand clenched, thereon a falcon close proper.

The record of 1530 to 1580 is identical to that of 1613.
