SARVM GROCER H M S
Image not available
There are no arms attributed to Seward corresponding to these. The Eyes of Suffolk bear argent chevron ermine between three escalops gules. The Salisbury Eyes had different arms. The nearest arms belonging to Salisbury or the neighbourhood are those of Grove--ermine on a chevron gules, three escalops. It is just possible it is a fancy coat, not ermines, but seven cloves on a chevron.
