I've just revamped the Caldecott arms for the illustrations of the 1613 Visitations and I was reminded that the illustrator of children's books, Ralph Caldecott, had an interest in his own family heraldry going so far as to depict he and his brother (who had co-authored with him their one and only book "Aesop's Fables") in humorous heraldic cartoon form. The image can be found inside the cover of Aesop's Fables.
I am grateful to the Randolf Caldecott Society UK for the image which illustrates this piece.
Their arms are:
Arms: Argent, a fess Azure fretted Or between three Cinquefoils Gules.
Crest: On a wreath an Ostrich proper.
