Families covered: Holme of Chester, Holme of Tranmere

Earwalker identifies the arms of this family as "Barry of six Or and Azure on a canton Ermine a rose Gules, seeded Or, bearded Vert". That looks as though it was based on the arms shown for the family on Holme02 without a chaplet but with differences of the colour of the canton and the addition of the rose.
