N. & B. I, 541, speak of 3 "defaced coats" only, at the west end! Mr. Bellasis' while naming the quarterings &c., has added (in brackets) the proper metals and tinctures, where Machell has not done so, and even certain charges where the monument is imperfect. Mr. Hodgson thinks it possible that in the latter's time the colours, so far as they are given by him, were extant on the monument. 2 This N .E. corner has been knocked off by some violent catastrophe. 3 They look like saltires and are sometimes 8, sometimes 10 in number here. See Mr. Bellasis' note in Cumbd. and Westmd Antiq. and Arch. Soc. Trans., pt. 1, vol. iv.,p. 212. 4 This coat is really divided here per fess with the 3 lions in chief, and 3 ermine spots in base, but it may have been intended correctly as given above. 5 The relative position of these supporters should be reversed. See Coll: Arms, Sir E. Walker's Nobility. 6Bendy of 6 or 10, is another version, Segar III. 949.1040. 7As Ufflett heir immediately succeeds St. Philibert heir, according to the genealogies, and the latter does not appear in her pedigree as introducing another quartering, this coat has not been identified. 8Mr. Bellasis notes in base a straight and an indented line, Machell notes both this coat and Montgomery with an engrailed border. 9i.e. Glover's Yorkshire Visitation 1584-5 (Coll. Arms 2nd died 5.526), gives a chief and no sinister canton. 10 i.e. This coat was borne by Mary Parke, who, although no heiress, was mother of Cecily coheir to John Mortimer. (Coll. Arms, Segar's Baronage pt. 2, p. 790), Vert, an eagle displayed or, within a border az. is also another Mortimer coat, (id).

Ar. maunch within border, sa. martlet of second for difference :–(Wharton) impaling sa. 3 greyhounds courant in pale az. collared of the field :–(Machell) (tinctures incorrect). N .B.–The 3 greyhounds in the Machell coat above should be ar. (az. is false heraldry), and the gold (not sable) collars are omitted by Dugdale (Norroy), in the Westmorland Heralds' Visitation (ColI. Arms, c. 39,66), probably to avoid a clashing with the shield of Mauleverer. See Cumbd. and Westmd.Antiq. and Arch. Trans., vol.8, p. 416, Art. xxxix. Machell of Crackenthorpe, by E. Bellasls (Lancaster).
