Gryphon


Copied by Henry Gray of Hatfield 2004
from the tabard of Sir John II in his funeral certificate of 1598.1

These arms—or, on a pile, azure, a gryphon passant of the field—were considered Broket arms from very early times. Glover attributed them to Dyonise wife of Edward Broket of Steton in generation 2 of his pedigree. Burke’s General Armory gave them as the earliest Broket arms.
