Burnham Overy

Lest you think all heraldry is on monuments and in windows, I am adding a few ledger slabs.  This one is interesting, with three coats of arms:

Mary Mott, daughter of Robert and Ann Blyford of Burnham Overy.  She married first, John Thruston, by whom she had two children, Mary and John;  and second, Edmund Mott, Doctor of Physick, having three more children, Edmund, Mary, and John.  She died 24May1702, aged 40.

Mary Mott, with three coats of arms

In the centre, On a Bend three Mullets with a Crescent for difference. – BLYFORD; Crest: A demi-Lion rampant. – Blyford.

On the dexter side, Three Buglehorns stringed (Or garnished Azure). – THRUSTON, impaling BLYFORD; Crest: A Heron (Argent). – Thruston of Hoxne.

On the sinister side, Sable) a Crescent (Argent). – MOTT, impaling BLYFORD.  Crest: A Mullet of six points. (Mott: A Mullet of eight points Argent.)
