I was asked if I could assist in the identification of the owner of this bookplate:

Errington:

Arms : Argent two bars in chief three escallops Azure.

Crest: A unicorn’s head erased per pale Argent and Gules.

Motto:  Patria Cara Carior Libertas

Impaling

Quarterly:

1st Gules a fess between six martlets Argent (Crooke) *

2nd Quarterly Gules and Or in the first and 4th quarter a cross patonce Argent (Crosse)

3rd Per chevron Sable and Argent in chief two leopard faces (?-tba)

4th Azure a lion rampant (?-tba)

The most likely candidate is George Henry Errington (b.1777 d.1843) of Cotton Hall, North Stafffordshire.  He married Elizabeth Sophia, daughter of John Crosse Crooke of Kempshot Park.

George Henry was the son of George Errington of Chadwell Hall and Ashbourn, co. Derby.
