I have been looking into the Arms of Sir Thomas Masterman HARDY (of HMS Victory fame) and have found a variety of blazons;

1815 – Debrett’s Baronetage “Pheon [sic] on a chevron between three escallops Argent as many griffins’ heads erased of the field langued Gules.”

1838 – Debrett’s Baronetage “Peaon on a chevron Or between three escallops Argent as many griffins’ heads erased of the field.”

1841 – Burke’s Extinct Baronetcies “Pean on a chevron between three escallops Argent as many griffins’ heads erased of the field.”

1884 – Burke’s General Armory “Pean on a chevron between three escallops Argent as many dragons’ heads proper.”

Who to believe?

Update;

My thanks to Robert Noel, Lancaster Herald, who advised that the
details were;

Arms: Pean on a chevron Or between three escallops Argent three
dragons’ heads erased of the field.

Crest: Out of a naval crown Or a dragon’s head pean.

No motto

Date 18th January 1806 Vol. 23 fol. 341
