Coat of arms 17th century Morgan and Tomkins Featured Brecknockshire Print

Coat of arms 17th century Morgan and Tomkins

This image is from a copperplate engraving, and shows part of a 'roll of arms' from Richard Blome's Britannia, an atlas published in 1673. It features the coats of arms of people who contributed towards the completion of the work a?? starting with King Charles II. Each page includes 35 coats of arms, presented here in pairs. These two coats of arms are from folio (page) 23 of the work. In old English, an 's' appeared as a 'long s' (which looks like an 'f'), while 'ss' appeared as 'fs'. 'Com' was an abbreviation for 'County'. A number is assigned to each benefactor. Here are the accompanying texts (followed by modernised English where appropriate): 748. William MORGAN of Newton in Brecknockfhire Efq (Brecknockshire / Breconshire, Wales). 749. Vuedale TOMKYNS of Monnington Upon Wye Com Hereford (Uvedale Tomkins of Monnington-on-Wye)
