  • Notes 
    • HENRY 'VOLLASTON, second son of Henry, was a citizen and draper of
      London, and the ancestor of the Wollastons of Shenton and of Waltham Abbey.

      He was not, however, without ambition of another kind; for in 1616, a few months before his
      death, he applied to the College of Arms for legal sanction to use armorial bearings. It was a common
      practice for the Heralds in those days to disguise new grants of arms by calling them confirmations and
      exemplifications. Accordingly on 10th July 1616 a crest was granted to ' Henry Wollaston, citizen of
      London, second son of Henry of Perton,' and his arms were exemplified-by Camden Clarencieux. The
      crest was a demi-griffin segreant Argent on a mural crown Or, holding a mullet Sable,pierced Argent, and
      the coat assigned to him was Argent three mullets Sable pierced of tile field. The filial difference is denoted by a crescent gules. The original grant is not on record at the College of Arms, but the exemplification was produced to the Heralds at the Visitation of Leicestershire on 4th Aug. 1682 by Henry's grandson William Wollaston of Shenton.
