I Promised You Some More Jenyns Coats of Arms

In my last post, I said that we'd be seeing some more Jenyns coats of arms, and today, we're going to look at a couple of them.

First up is a memorial to Roger William Bulyer Jenyns, 1858-1936. As you can read on the memorial itself, it was erected by his wife, Winifred née Pease, and their three living sons; George Arthur Jenyns, Roger Soame Jenyns (see below), and Edward Thomas Jenyns.

The blazon of the Jenyns arms is the same as in the previous post: Argent on a fess gules three bezants. On the tablet there is a crest above the arms: A demi-lion rampant or maintaining in both forepaws a spear sable [it should be, or] headed argent.

The next memorial is that to Roger Soame Jenyns (1904-1976). This memorial was erected by his wife, Ann née Berridge, and their two sons.

Roger Soame Jenyns, who usually wrote his name simply as Soame Jenyns, has his own Wikipedia entry, along with a listing of the books he authored, at:

The blazon once again of these really very simple, uncomplicated arms is: Argent on a fess gules three bezants.

I always find it wonderful to see multiple generations of a family using their coat of arms. Do you?
