A bookplate linked to one of my Armorials has caught my eye over at eBay, that of Edward Akroyd MP JP DL of Bankfield.

Edward Akroyd married Elizabeth, daughter of John Fearby of Poppleton Lodge, in 1838. Elizabeth died in 1884 and Edward died in 1887. They had no children.

Azure a chevron and in base a stag’s head erased Argent on a chief of the last two stags’ heads erased of the field.
Argent a chevron engrailed between three lions’ heads erased Sable (Fearby of Poppleton*)
In front of a stag’s head proper three spear heads Sable encircled by a wreath of oak
In Veritate Victoria (Victory in Truth)

My Akroyd armorial can be viewed at www.heraldry-online.org.uk/akroyd.html

* The Arms used by Fearby are listed as Fereby in Burke’s General Armory.
