  1. For Cyril F. Johnstone
  2. A griffin’s head couped, charged on the breast with a portcullis within a garter, the whole is placed on the inner mantle and ensigned with an earl’s coronet. This crest is that of the Earl of Halifax and the initials are his. There is cast of the crest as it appeared on the original bell in the Tysson collection at Barbican House, Lewes.
  3. This crest, a pelican in her piety feeding her young, ensigned with an earl’s coronet, is that of the Lumley family, the initials representing Richard Lumley, 4th Earl of Scarborough (d.1782).
