I have recently been asked to produce the arms believed to have been used by Sir Samuel Egerton Leigh Bart.
The third baronet's quarterings are believed to be represented as follows :
1 & 8 Leigh : Or a Lion rampant Gules
2 Egerton : Argent a Lion rampant Gules between three Pheons Sable
3 Cavendish : Sable three Bucks' Heads cabossed Argent (undifferenced as Lord Cavendish of Furness uses today; the quartering of these arms also serves to difference them)
4 Stanley : Argent on a bend Azure three Stags' Heads cabossed Or (the arms of the Earl of Derby)
5 Clifford : Checky Or and Azure a fess Gules
6 Brandon : Barry of ten Argent and Gules a Lion rampant Or ducally crowned per pale of the First and Second
7 Henry VII : Quarterly 1st & 4th, Azure three Fleurs-de-Lis Or (France); 2nd & 3rd, Gules three Lions passant guardant in pale Or (England)
