Well as we all like words so much here's another nice one following along hot on the heels of the last ...
Entitled to bear heraldic arms.
As de Quincy writes in 1858: "They belonged to the armigerous part of the population, and were entitled to write themselves Esquire".
For those interested the shield on the right is the arms of England, 1405-1603, consisting of France Moderne (Azure three fleur-de-lis Or) quartered with England (Gules three lions passant guardant in pale Or armed and langued azure). It is formally blazoned as: Quarterly, I and IV azure three fleur-de-lis Or; II and III gules three lions passant guardant in pale Or armed and langued azure.
