Gilbert N/A

Possibly the stamp of a member of the family of Gilbert or Gilbard of Devon, whose arms are Ermine on a chevron sable three roses argent. Other families recorded in Papworth with similar arms are: Mower of Woodseats in Derbyshire, in the time of Henry VI, represented in the 1820s by George Mower Esq, of Holt House in Darley, Derbyshire, who bore Ermine on a chevron azure three roses argent. Moore of Moorehayes in Cullompton in Devon in the time of Henry III, bore Ermine on a chevron azure three cinquefoils or, Papworth says roses, but it is clear that the family bore cinquefoils. The last male heir was George Moore who died in 1711. The heiress married a member of the family of Blackmore. They can probably be discounted as the stamp clearly shows three roses. Cridland of Somerset bore Ermine on a chevron gules three roses argent. Fochebury of Bedfordshire, Scepter, Skepper of Durham (Visitation 1615) and of Bradwell in Suffolk (Visitation 1664 1668) all bore Ermine on a chevron gules three roses or, though the last more commonly bore bezants in place of the roses. Cyril Davenport, in his English heraldic book stamps (London, 1909 p.192 attributes this stamp to John Gilbert, Archbishop of York (1683 1761) but his arms were different.
