The latter gives the above Curwen-Carus match, and notes to the line of Thomas Carus' brother Christopher, the Carus arms (not, as above, minus the 10 cinquefoils, but) minus the 4 mullets on the chevron. Mr. W. Jackson notes the billette lion as sometimes lozengy.

Kirkby Lonsdale (Middleton chapel, N. E). Hill MSS. II, 328, citing Machell, has the following note with tricks of arms :-" E .end N. aisle, Middleton quire, where are ye ruins of a fine mon : made of alabaster of a reddish brown colour, below wh. these coats of arms ; on wh.were ye effigies of Edwd. Middleton Esq. & his wife." 1 (one end) saltire engrailed (Middleton) ; II. Middleton impaling 3 combs (Tunstal) ; III. (5. side) Middleton im paling on chevron between 10 cinquefoils, 6 in chief, & 4 in base, 3 mullets (Carus) IV. Middleton impaling 3 bugle horns (Bellingham) v. (N. side) per fess ? plain & lozengy, a fess chequy (sic. ? for lozengy, a label, i.e., Fitzwilliam see note below) impaling Middleton. VI. Middleton impaling Bellingham.* * Such is Machell's and Hill's account. The old tomb, (formerly in the centre of this chapel, when it extended further into the churchyard) is now (1888) more than half destroyed. The lady's figure, cut to the waist, appears, and such of the structure as remains is run (end on) against the north wall. Canon Ware (Cumbd. & Westmd. Antiq. & Arch. Soc.Trans. pt. II, vol. I pp. 193-4) cites Whitaker as noting Middleton impaling Tunstal, and (if Mr. Bellasis understands him rightly) suggests Fitzwilliam Instead of Tunstal (i.e. lozengy and a label). Now Fitzwilliam may be intended for the strange trick above in No. v, & the Middleton coat on the sinister side of the shield may stand for Eleanor Middleton married to Fitzwilliam c. 1330., but this Tunstal on the sinister side of the shield would have to be dexter, if it is to make way for John Fitzwilliam. The known Middleton-Tunstall match is later than this tomb's probable date. Whitaker apparently only follows Machell with these 3 combs; & some such early Middleton- Tunstall match is quite as possible as the Fitzwilliam-Middleton alliance; and neither need make way for the other.
