Oakes, James (1741 -1829)

Probably the stamp of James Oakes of Nowton Court, Suffolk, only son of James Oakes, banker of Bury St Edmonds, and his second wife, Susan, daughter of Orbell Ray. His arms were: within a bordure ermine Sable six sprigs of oak or on a fess engrailed or three oak leaves impaling Within a bordure engrailed gules Argent two chevrons azure (Tyrell). Crest an oak tree within a paling. Motto Quercus rober salus patria. The impalement for Tyrell is strange, but perhaps he used his father's bookplate with the impalement for the first wife who is not given in Burke's Landed Gentry. The son married Elizabeth daughter of Christopher Adamson of Wereham in Norfolk.
