Arms of William Longspée, 3rd Earl of Salisbury 1196-1226 (1176?-1226) and Ela Fitzpatrick, Countess of Salisbury
From p95 of Lacies Nobilitie by Sir John Ferne (1586)
Blazon: Per pale baron and femme azure six lioncels or and paly of six gules and vair on a chief or a lion passant sable
Longspée was an illegitimate son of Henry II, who came into his title by marrying Ela, only child and heir to the second Earl of Salisbury, William FitzPatrick. Ferne somewhat disapproves of these arms; he is adamant in his position that illegitimate children may never bear the arms of their father. He sees even the baton sinister mark of bastardy as a grudging concession to popular consensus.
Blazon: Gules on a pale or between two seaxes palewise points upward addorsed argent hilted and pommeled of the second two lioncels azure; overall a on a fess wavy argent another sable
Crest: On a wreath of the colors a garb or surmounted by a mount vert, thereupon a boar passant azure crined and unguled of the second supporting with the dexter forehoof a Maltese Cross gules
Supporters: Two lions sable, armed and langued gules, each gorged with a riband argent pendent therefrom by a ring a molet of the last surmounted by a pentagon or fimbriated and charged with a fleur-de-lis vert and holding in the mouth a shuttle erect threaded proper.
