The bookplate of George William Marshall (1839-1905) is currently being listed at eBay.  In 1887 he was appointed Rouge Croix Pursuivant of Arms and in 1904 was promoted to be York Herald.

Marshall’s Grant of Arms was dated 2nd April 1867 to both his descendants and those of his uncle, William Marshall.

The blazon:
Arms: Barry of six Ermine and Azure a horseshoe Or between three bezants.
Crest: A bezant charged with a horseshoe Azure between two wings barry of six ermine and azure.
Motto: “Vi Martiali”

Incidentally, the engraving of the bookplate seems identical to that in various editions of Fox-Davies’ Armorial Families.  His children & grandchildren are listed in 1929 as:

1. George Marshall b.1869 m.1898 Constance Marion Baldwin
1.1. George Humphrey Marshall b.1900
1.2. Malcolm Thomas Marshall b.1906
1.3. Christopher Marshall b.1907

  1. Hello Stephen,

    Thank you for sharing this image and information on George William Marshall.

    I have a biography and photograph of George William Marshall at: http://www.cumberbatch.org/index.php/stories/people/george-william-marshall

    George’s mother’s maiden surname was Comberbach and he published “Collections for a Genealogical Account of the Family of Comberbach” in 1866.

    You will also find here the bookplate of John Paul Rylands, who wrote GWM’s Memoir.

    Please may I use this image and description that you have posted here to enrich his biography?

    Many thanks Bob
