Description
This engraving is from a copperplate dated 1673, and shows part of a 'roll of arms', and is from an unknown work. 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 groups of five.

These two coats of arms are from folio (page) 23 of the work. In old English, an 's' appeared as a 'long s' (which looks like an 'f'), while 'ss' appeared as 'fs'. 'Com' was an abbreviation for 'County'. A number is assigned to each benefactor.

Here are the accompanying texts (followed by modernised English where appropriate):

758
George CASTLE of St. Martins in ye fields in Com Middlefex Dr. of Phifick & fellow of ye Royall Society (George Castle of St Martin-in-the-Fields, Middlesex, Doctor of Phisick (Medicine) and Fellow of the Royal Society (FRS); author of The Chymical Galenist)

759
Robert LEIGHTON of Watles borough in Com Salop Efq (Of Wattlesborough in the County of Shropshire)
