Families covered: Rowe of Pevensey, Rowe of Westham

Visitation identifies the arms of the following family, quartered with those of Drew, as "Argent, a chevron sable between three lions' heads erased gules". Despite the Kent connection, this suggests that this family was not aware of a connection with that shown on Rowe01.
