Arms of Roger de Leuknor

Leukenore

(c. 1244 – c. 1295)

From the Dering Roll (c. 1270-1300)

Blazon: Azure three chevronels argent

Sir Roger de Leuknor (or Lewknor) married Joan de Keynes, who seems to have been an heiress in her own right. They probably lived near Sussex, where both families held land.

The chevronel is a diminutive (smaller version) of the chevron. As in these arms, they are typically borne in multiples, although it’s not impossible to have a single chevronel.
