The above is very similar to a device sometimes used by brush-makers. The curved implement, something like a flattened horse-shoe, is probably intended for the "bit-stock" used for boring holes in wood; while the pigs and three pellets or bundles have reference to the bristles used for brushes. These arms are still borne by an Essex family, but they now read: quarterly--1, the Ulster hand; 2, two Lions passant; 3, a crescent moon; 4, three bezants--and form quite an aristocratic coat, of which we see the origen above!
