TCP says of the following William "whose origins are unknown" but that his arms were "Arg. a lion passant Gu. between two bars Sa. 3 bezants, 2 and 1; in chief 3 bucks' heads cabossed of the third". We have found a possible ancestry for him (see here) but it is far too speculative for us to make the connection.
