From The Blazon of Gentrieby Sir John Ferne (1586), p202

Blazon: Per quarterly argent and azure a fess and bordure counterchanged

“If any man would see, a coat well counterchanged in his mutable colors, he shall look on this: but in truth, it hath no name.”

From The Blazon of Gentrie by Sir John Ferne (1586), p200

Blazon: Per bend crenellé points pointed one in the other* argent and azure, four crescents interlaced counterchanged

*Crenellé was more generally used as a synonym for embattled. The partition line shown here is not common in English heraldry, nor is the accompanying language.

From The Blazon of Gentrie by Sir John Ferne (1586), p198-199

Blazon: Per saltire or on a bend azure a bendlet gules and of the second three palets argent

“This kind of partition is diversely blazed… the ancients called it Gyronny of four parts. The French blazoners call it, quarterly in bend, of such and such colors.”

From The Blazon of Gentrie by Sir John Ferne (1586), p198

Blazon: Azure two squares addorsed or

The square is a tool used by carpenters and masons. Usually, they are shown with more detail than the illustration depicts, but they are not an unusual charge.

The Fret is formed by two palets in saltire, and braced in the center with a mascle; it is called by some authors the Harrington’s Knot, as composing their coat armour, though not solely appropriated.

Blazon: Or three tridents palewise 2 and 1 gules

“If you know not how to blaze [this coat], it is shame for you, since that the devise thereof, is taken from one of the Gods of the heathen, and you have read thereof in every Poet.” – Paradius, the herald in Ferne’s text (197)
