Families covered: Chauncy (Chancy) of Porton, Chancy (Chancey or Chauncey) of Sawbridgeworth

Visitation describes the arms of the following family as "Gules, a cross patonce argent, on a chief azure, a lion passant or", with the 1572 Visitation mentioning "a crescent for difference" but the 1634 Visitation reporting the arms as the same as the earlier Visitation "without the crescent for difference". This suggests that this family was very closely connected to the family shown at the continuation (on Chauncy1). Showing the following William as a younger son of that family seems reasonable. However, the generation shown is speculative. DFUSA, the main source for Chauncy1, shows a John Chauncy of Sawbridgeworth in the generation after what we show for William but the dates make the generation we show seem more appropriate.
