Other details: Three tracings in pencil: Fig 3 is a four tile pattern of Gothic tracery, of great beauty, formed of trefoils, with quatrefoils in the angles, probably unique. Fig 4, composed of four tiles, each bearing a lion's head, and forming when placed together, a quatrefoil of good and effective design; the angles are filled in with trefoils and the lions' tongues, which are extended, form a cross in the centre. Fig 5 has an elegant fleur de lis placed diagonally.The fleur de lis, although not an unusual device on paving tiles may in this particular instance have been used in reference to the Foljambe family, Sir Godfrey Folyjambe having married the daughter of Darley, who bore gules, six fleur de lis, argent.
