Comment :-- family being researched: ISAAC
Photograph of Francis Isaac monument (grave 318655)
Thank you for the image. I wanted it for the extremely trivial but, at the same time, vitally important, wish to see if the lambs in Francis Isaac's coat-of-arms had ropes hanging round their necks. Col. Vivian in his edition of the Visitations of Devon, published 1895, stated that, on this monument, they had. On a monument showing Francis' daughter's arms in St Giles-in-the-Wood the ropes were not shown. On this monument in West Down, as shown in the picture, the arms of Isaac are displayed three times and, as far as I can tell, the lambs do not have ropes. Curious.
You can add your own comments to the above.
