Unidentified Stamp
Dimensions:
Crest A lion’s head erased collared and ringed
Possibilities for Identification: 
Fairbairn’s Crests gives the following names for this crest: Allerton; Archbold or Archebold of Staffordshire; Auchterlony; Barr or Barry; Betenson, Bettenson or Betterson of Kent; Bettinson of Seven Oaks in Kent; Bettison of Warwickshire; Burr; Craig; Danncey and Dauncey of Herefordshire; Dansey of Easton Court, Herefordshire; De Placetes; Dunk; Glynn of Ireland, Gowans of Scotland; Gregory of Ireland: Gunthorpe of Norfolk; Home of Scotland; Hume of Crossrigs in Scotland; Huninges of Cheshire and of Carsam in Suffolk; Hunt of Scotland: Egleton-Kent Baronet of Suffolk; Lobb; Merrington; Penrose of Ireland and Barkshire; Pentland of Ireland; Peters; Placetis; Posynworth; Repley; Rokwood; Skottow of London; Starling; Veldon of Rafin County Meath in Ireland; Wallace; and Yorks. The illustration in Fairbairn shows the collar without a ring. The entries in the list have been edited by comparison with the entries in the alphabetical section of the book. Extra detail has been added and those which differ in detail from the stamp have been deleted. Of these only Veldon of Rafin County Meath in Ireland is described as ringed. Unfortunately this is not very helpful as there is a vagueness about some of the entries: in a number of cases it is not stated whether the lion’s head was couped or erased. Until further evidence emerges this crest will remain unidentified. It is of course possible that the two stamps represent different provenances.

Dimensions:
Crest A leopard rampant sable
Possibilities for Identification: 
Burke's General armory gives several possibilities; Horne (Argent a leopard rampant gules); Lincolne (Or a leopard rampant sable armed argent); Etheresset (Azure a leopard rampant or); and Marney, Essex (Gules a leopard rampant argent). Papworth adds Walton; Hun; Astley; and Lancaster. The most likely of these is Lincolne as the tincture of the leopard is sable.

Possibilities for Identification: 
The arms of Glasbrook as given by Burke's General armory are: Or a lion passant sable on a chief gules three fleurs-de-lys. The crest, however, is: A demi lion gules ducally crowned or. The motto is that of Blayney. The arms of Blayney are Sable three nags heads erased argent, and the crest is A horse's head couped bridled gules on the forehead a piece of armour with a projecting spike proper. These coincidences are surely not accidental.

Unidentified Stamp
Dimensions:
Arms Quarterly 1 & 4 A lion rampant 2 & 3 Barry of six checky [or perhaps vairy]
Possibilities for Identification: 
Perhaps foreign. If the three bars are vairy, the arms in the second and third quarters could be one of a number of British families including Beaumont and Bruce.
Heraldic Charges: 
Unidentified Stamp
Dimensions:
Arms Quarterly 1 & 4. A lion rampant 2 & 3 Barry of six on a chief three lions heads erased (Hickling?)
Possibilities for Identification: 
For the 2nd and 3rd quarters Papworth gives the following possible identification: Burrell, Woodland, Devon (Azure six barrulets argent on a chief gules threes leopard’s heads or); Hickling, Greens’ Norton, Northamptonshire (Azure threes bars or in chief as many lion’s heads erased or); and Love, of Hampshire (Argent three bars gules in chief as many lion’s heads erased gules)

Possibilities for Identification: 
Davenport identifies these arms as Trewarthen, the second quartering as Blackborne, the third as Butts, and the fourth as Coleshill, but admits to having failed to identify the member of the family of Trewarthen who used the stamp. The identification of the quarterings is probably a random selection from the possibilities offered by Papworth. Without putting too much faith in the hypothesis, and still only working from Papworth, it is possible to offer a more likely interpretation prima facie. The only one of the quarterings which can be certainly identified is the third, and this is the family of Butts of Norfolk. Davenport's Bend for Blackborne is presumably Papworth's `Argent a bend sable' for which no location is given. It is not in Burke's General armory, which lists different arms for Blackborne of Yorkshire, Lancashire and Sussex. Trewarthen is a Cornish name and Coleshill with a chief goutty de sang, as in Davenport's description of the stamp, but not in the illustration, where it is ermine, is also of Cornwall. If, however we assume for the moment that all four quarters are from Norfolk, this would give Randolfe for the first quarter, the second quarter is too common a charge to be identified, Butts is in the third quarter, and assuming the illustration is right and Davenport's description is wrong, Tattershall in the last. This is of course speculation, and the stamp should be treated as Unidentified.

Unidentified Stamp
Dimensions:
Arms Quarterly 1. A cross moline pierced (unidentified) 2. Per chevron three trefoils slipped counterchanged (Knight?) 3. Vair a bend (Manchester?) 4. A chevron between three owls (Oldham?)
Possibilities for Identification: 
Numerous families bear a cross moline, especially Miller. Identification will depend on finding the arms with these quarterings and a name attached. Perhaps a random search through the Herald's Visitations might give the answer.
