A Mystery: Azure a bear passant Argent

Azure a bear passant Argent

Following on from my post back in January about the Arms of Gollop of Strode I have been pondering the identity of the Arms in the 2nd & 3rd Quarters –  Azure a bear passant Argent.  The Gollop pedigree makes mention of two heraldic heiresses, Alice daughter of William Temple of Templecombe and Elizabeth daughter of Thomas Thorne of Caundle Marsh.

Gollop heiresses

The Arms are listed in Garter’s Ordinary at the College of Arms but are unnamed and the source cited is the 1677 Visitation of Dorset entry for Gollop.  Nor do they appear in the two published volumes of The Ordinary of Scottish Arms.

The only match I have found was listed in Rietstap’s Armorial Général for Aresen (Denmark).

Aresen - Rietstrap2

Unless, of course, someone else knows of any others.
