Another one for my armorial lost opportunities section however, unlike The Granville Arms, this one at least has some tenuous connection between the name and the painting depicted on the pub sign. The Tayleur Arms at Longdon on Tern is actually a pub well worth visiting with a good restaurant* but it is stretching the point a bit (well, armorially at least) to depict a clipper instead of the armorial bearings of Tayleur, it is after all called The Tayleur Arms and not The Tayleur Clipper!
The arms of Taylor of Longdon upon Tern (yes, it is spelt Taylor and not Tayleur) are recorded in the Visitations of Shropshire 1623 as Ermine, on a chief Sable three escallops Argent. Burke’s General Armory record the arms of Tayleur (Buntingdale, co. Salop; settled at a very early period at Roddington, was High Sheriff co.Salop. 1691) Ermine, on a chief sable three escallopes Argent with a crest of Out of a ducal coronet Or, a dexter arm in armour holding in the hand a sword all Proper.
A history of the Clipper connection can be found on their web site:
*Many years ago, under a previous ownership, the pub used to have a grandfather clock, the face of which stated W. W. Goldstraw, Leek, standing in the lounge. I always meant to take a photograph of it but never got around to it. I wonder where it ended up.
