From The Blazon of Gentrie by Sir John Ferne, p178-9

Left to right:

Arms of “Ferdinande, a prince and infaunt of Spaine, Arche Duke of Austria”, who later became Ferdinand I, Holy Roman Emperor: or an endorse between a lion saliant and an eagle displayed gules

Arms of Wroton: argent a pile bendwise issuant from the sinister base triple flory sable. Ferne terms it “naisant in bend;” in any case, it is a very unusual orientation.

Or two bendlets embattled counter-embattled gules surmounted by a bar azure. Ferne uses “crenelle” and “bretessy” instead of “embattled counter-embattled” and says they are “fretted with a barrulet” rather than “surmounted by a bar,” but the ordinary in question seems too large to be called a barrulet.
