Revisited – Grant of Arms: John Gonning of Bristol, 1662

ebay vendor, diggerlee, is now offering for sale the 1662 Grant of Arms to John Gonning “formerly mayor now Alderman of the Citty of Bristoll” by Sir Edward Bysshe, Clarenceux. I covered the earlier auction on 10th March 2021 here. The current sale price is £4,500.

diggerlee has added more photographs that better show the text and the Arms themselves.

In my earlier post I mentioned that the name within the Grant had been modified to Gonning. The details on the reverse of the Grant, along with entry in Grantees of Arm, bear witness to this.
