Pope Armorial

I am in the process of updating/finishing my Armorial for Pope. A recent search of the Canadian Heraldic Authority’s online Public Register reveals a grant of Arms to John Joseph Pope of Toronto, Ontario and his sons. The Arms are based upon those of “Pope of Cornwall”, Azure three griffins’ heads erased Or. Unfortunately, so far the only “authority” for these Arms seems to be Burke’s General Armory which has been shown to be unreliable at times. If anyone knows of another source I would be most interested to hear from them.
