Other details: Tile on which the arms of Hugh de Vere are impressed viz. Quarterly gules and or - in the first quarter a mullet argent, the whole within a bordure indented sable- which border was assumed to difference his coat armour from that of his elder brother Robert de Vere. Earl of Oxford. As Hugh died without issue in the early part of the reign of Edward III this circumstance affords a clue to dating Rochester tiles middle 14th century. This Hugh was present at the siege of Caerlaverlock Castle and his arms are figured in the roll without the breviary (?) in the 4th quarter. Possibly he became a recluse, after his wife's death though of this I have no knowledge. Mr Wright says he fought in three reigns and Dugdale says he was of full age at the date of his father's death 24 Edward I (AD 1296). His wife inherited Swanscombe in Kent and died in AD 1313. Registrum Roffeuse (F Renaud).
