BLG1952 identifies the arms of the following family, quartered with those of Hanbury, as "per fesse az. and arg., in chief three roses of the second, and in base an arrow in pale ppr.". The use of three roses suggests that it was thought that they were connected to the Sparrows of East Anglia in Sparrow01.
