At the weekend we made use of our National Trust membership for a quick visit to Mottisfont Priory.  The one bit of heraldry that caught my eye were the gates:

Burke’s General Armory gives the Arms of the Mill Baronets, who once owned the estate, as:

Arms: Per fesse Argent and Sable a pale counterchanged three bears salient of the second muzzled and chained Or.

Crest: A demi bear salient Sable muzzled and chained Or.

Motto: Aides Dieu
