Arms of Ralph de Stopham

Stopham

From the Dering Roll (c. 1270-1300)

Blazon: Argent three crescents and a canton gules

Ralph appears to have had possession of the manor and lordship of Stopham, which passed down through his family until his great-granddaughter Eva de Stopham married  William de Echingham. After her death, ownership of the manor is unclear, but it did ultimately end up with the Arundel family in the early fifteenth century.
