Description

This image is from a copperplate engraving, and shows part of a 'roll of arms' from Richard Blome's Britannia, an atlas published in 1673. It features the coats of arms of people who contributed towards the completion of the work – starting with King Charles II. Each page includes 35 coats of arms, presented here in pairs.

These two coats of arms are from folio (page) 10 of the work. In old English, an 's' appeared as a 'long s' (which looks like an 'f'), while 'ss' appeared as 'fs'. The letters V and U can be confused, and 'com' was an abbreviation for 'County'. A number is assigned to each benefactor.

Here are the texts accompanying each coat of arms (followed by modernised English where appropriate):

313
Iohn BVCKWORTH of ye Citty of London & of Gedney in Com Lincolne Efq (John Buckworth)

314
Mr. Ric: WESCOMB of London Merchant & of Milvertune in Com Somerfet Gent. (Wescombe, Milverton, Somerset)
