Other details: Mr Henniker who always accounted the Caen tiles to be coeval with William the Conqueror. Assigned the accompanying shield to Malherbes, Lords of Longvillers, but these three lions passant gardant are much more likely to represent the Royal Arms of England, as at first borne by King John and represented on his great shield in the Appendix to the Report of the Royal Commissioners on Public Records folio 1800-19. It is true that heraldic writers have usually assigned the first use of the three leopards or lions to the next reign, but the device on John's shield should be conclusive, and so serve further to strengthen the belief that these tiles are of King John's period.
