Colonel Cooper – Bookplate

I have been asked if I could help identify the various quarters in the Arms of a Colonel Cooper.

My attempt at the blazons is:
Quarterly 1st Gules a bend engrailed between six lions rampant Or. (Cooper)

2nd quarterly i & iv Argent an eagle displayed Sable ii & iii Azure three bezants.

3rd Argent two pallets Azure on a fess Argent three papingoes

4th Gules a fleur-de-lys Or a chief vair.


Argent a fess chequy Argent and Azure between three mullets in chief and a crescent in base

Motto Vincit amor patrle (“The love of country conquers.” )

Unfortunately, apart from Cooper, I have rather drawn a blank from my usual sources.  The Cooper Arms are those of the 2nd & 3rd quarters of the Earl of Shaftesbury (Ashley-Cooper).

Any assistance would be welcome.
