Arms were granted to Unthank of Intwood Hall, Norfolk in 1863 – Vol. LV fol. 68
Or a saltire Gules beween two crescents in pale of the last and as many gryphons’ heads erased in fess Sable.
The grantee was most likely to be Clement William Unthank JP, DL. He married in 1835 Mary Anne Muskett the only daughter and heir to Joseph Salisbury Muskett of Intwood Hall. Joseph Muskett died in 1860. No doubt the inheritance of the estate of over 2,400 acres prompted Clement Unthank to petition for a grant of Arms. Clement died in 1884 aged about 79.

Given that Mary Anne Muskett was also a heraldic heiress, her children could quarter her Arms with those of their father;

The Intwood estate was inherited by Miss Margaret Beatrice Unthank from her father, John Salusbury Unthank, in 1960. When she died in 1995, her cousin, Mrs. Jan Darling and family continue to live at Intwood Hall. It would appear that the Hall has be subsequently sold – http://www.ckd.co.uk/intwood.html .
