Heraldic Devices

21st November 2022

This heraldic device is called an Achievement, and it records all the noble in-laws of the deceased. The red hand denotes a baronnet. Thus a person’s genealogy is displayed. I found this in Hethel church where the deceased was buried. Alas, I’m unable to decipher it.

I claim this as Family Time, another title from the list Maria Antonia has given us for #2022picoftheweek
