elphick (3)
ArmsArgent, a chevron Gules between three double-headed eagles each holding with both feet a sword fesswise point to the dexter Or three bezants on a chief Azure three pheons reversed also Or.

These arms are based on the arms used by Elphicks of Chiddingly/Hellingly East Sussex, ironmaster and armourers, from whom the armiger is descended, and alter barristers and solicitors of Grey’s Inn, Lincoln’s Inn and Clifford’s Inn in the mid 1600s. Those arms, confirmed by entries in the funeral painters guild books, comprised a chevron with three plates between three eagles displayed. The swords they grasp in the new arms are an allusion to fencing, and the pheons to the ancient ironmaster/armourers.
