Hockenhull of Prenton

Latest updated image on the website is that of Hockenhull of Prenton. The crest of the arms as recorded in the 1613 Visitations differs to that of 1580. The 1580 crest is that of Hockenhull of Hockenhull differenced (for cadency) by a crescent as in the arms however, that of 1613 has dispensed with the crescent and differenced the crest by way of changing the tinctures of the arrowhead.
