Families covered: Phillipps of Droitwich

MGH identifies the arms of John Phillipps of Hanbury as "Erminois, a lion rampant sable, ducally gorged and chained or, between two crosses-crosslet filchee in chief, and an escallop in base gules" and reports that that John "had previously borne the arms and crest of Phillipps of Picton Castle, co. Prmbroke, " thinking it probable," as the grant recites, "that his ancestors derived their descent from that family" " and notes that the father of the following Thomas "is said to have left Picton to join the Royalist army".
