I have been asked if I could help identify the various quarters in the Arms of a Colonel Cooper.
2nd quarterly i & iv Argent an eagle displayed Sable ii & iii Azure three bezants.
3rd Argent two pallets Azure on a fess Argent three papingoes
4th Gules a fleur-de-lys Or a chief vair.
Argent a fess chequy Argent and Azure between three mullets in chief and a crescent in base
Motto Vincit amor patrle (“The love of country conquers.” )
Unfortunately, apart from Cooper, I have rather drawn a blank from my usual sources. The Cooper Arms are those of the 2nd & 3rd quarters of the Earl of Shaftesbury (Ashley-Cooper).
Any assistance would be welcome.
