The Harleian MS for the Visitations of Chester of 1613 records the second quarter of the arms of Egerton of Ridley as Or, three piles in pile Gules, on a canton Argent a griffin segreant Sable [Basset]. I believe this to be incorrect.
These are the arms of Ralph Bassett of Blore which are: Or, three piles in point Gules, on a canton Argent a griffin segreant Sable. They are correctly recorded in the MS for the Visitations of 1558.
Illustrated below are the arms as I believe they should be.
Egerton of Ridley
Arms: Quarterly of nine -
1 Argent, a lion rampant Gules, between three pheons Sable, a crescent for cadency [Egerton]
2 Or, three piles in pile Gules, on a canton Argent a griffin segreant Sable [Basset] **
3 Quarterly Gules and Argent, a cross Ermine, a bordure of the second [Beke]
4 Argent, a fesse vaire Or and Gules, between three water bougets Sable, a mullet for cadency [Dethick]
5 Vaire, Argent and Sable [Meynell]
6 Sable, a lion rampant Argent [?]
7 Argent, three bendlets [enhanced] Gules [Byron]
8 Argent, on a bend Azure, three annulets Or, in sinister chief a cross-crosslet fitchy of the second [Colwick]
9 Argent, a greyhound passant Sable, in chief a mullet Gules for cadency [Holford]
** I believe this to be a mistake in the Visitations transcription. The blazon should be: 2 Or, three piles in point Gules, on a canton Argent a griffin segreant Sable. [Bassett]. These are the arms of Sir Ralph Bassett of Blore.
