Heraldic Puns abound in Cheshire

We all like a good heraldic pun and one of my favourites is the arms of Toft. 



The Tofts of Toft, a very ancient Cheshire house, charged their silver shield with a black chevron and three text T's of the same, the T oft repeated being an exact representation of their name. 

Addendum:
Extracts from Ormerod's History of Chester illustrating that the original Toft of Toft coat did not have the chevron.
