Another heraldic treat on eBay.  The Letters Patent for the Rev John Baldwin of Harrock Hall granting authority for him to “assume and take the surname and bear the Arms of Rigbye only” in compliance with the Will of Thomas Rigbye late of Harrock Hall.  It is dated 15th September 1787 and signed by Isaac Heard, Garter and George Harrison, Norroy.

Arms: Argent on a cross flory Azure five mullets Or.

Crest: On a wreath a goat’s head erased Sable armed gold.
