Leftwich of Leftwich 1663 ... an error?

I have just emblazoned the arms of Leftwich of Leftwich as recorded in the Visitations of 1666 and I am left with the opinion that either the entry itself or the transcription of it must surely be an error. The blazon is recorded as: Argent, an escutcheon between eight martlets in orle Sable, a canton also Sable. (No crest is recorded).


Leftwich 1663


The arms of Leftwich of Leftwich are extremely well documented elsewhere as being Argent, an escucheon voided within an orle of martlets Sable, within the escucheon a cross pattee Gules and they are so closely related by design and blood to their cousins the Winningtons that an error is the only conclusion that can be drawn.
