Other details: On this tile the armorial device of the Kingdom of Scotland is represented viz or within a double tressure flory counter-flory a lion rampant gules. The three lions passant guardant for England and a chevronel coat similar to that of Clare was also included in the find. The above is the solitary instance of the arms of Scotland I have encountered as depicted on a tile in Ely and for reason assigned (531-2). I attribute it as a collateral addition to the family of Arundel, Walter Fitzalan having purchased the stewartry of Scotland from Malcom IV in AD 1158 and thus became ancestor of the Royal family of Stewart. In pencil No 12.
