Families covered: Levinge of Baddesley, Levinge of Shepey

Nichols identifies the arms of this family as "Vert, a chevron Or, in chief three escallop-shells Argent" whilst Visitation identifies them as "Vert, on a chevron or a crescent for difference, in chief three escallops argent". This suggests a close connection with the family shown on Levinge1.
