Arms of Robert Hungerford

Lord Moleyns and Hungerford (1431-1464)

Blazon: Per quarterly I and IV sable two bars argent, in chief three plates (Hungerford); II and III per pale indented vert and gules, a chevron or; overall in the fess point an escutcheon crowned proper, argent three mill-rinds sable*

*I cannot be sure of this blazon; the escutcheon of pretense indicates that it was the arms of his wife, Eleanor, heiress of the Moleyns family. The name suggests a moline, or mill-rind, as a possible charge, but this is sheer conjecture.
