This is a find from last summer and some of you may have seen it before as I posted it on a thread started by The Fen Tiger who gave a wonderfully informative link to a document called Medieval Armorial Hose Furniture based around Norfolk.
This was found in Northumberland across the River Rede from where the De Lisle family seat , Hallyards stood in the Medieval period.
The De Lisles were an important landowning family in Medieval Northumberland from the late 12C. onwards where the held the Liberty of Redesdale.
This obviously was my starting point to try and get an attribution of the armorial design on the pendant,but with no joy .
I have been researching it on and off for some months with little luck.
There is a Quatrefoil one which is pretty similar on the PAS I'd. HAMP 2066 but with no family attribution.

It was found about five yards away from the Henry 3rd voided long cross shown in one of the pics below ( a very good day for me )

With so many ID. wizards on the forum I wondered if anyone else can make more sense of it than me.
Thanks in advance,
Reiver.

Have notified my FLO ,but this is Northumberland and I still have 7items outstanding from 2019 just for entering on the PAS. It takes nearly as long as Treasure.

I’ve been trying to find you a match with no success. However I have found a book where it states that the quatrefoil pendants with Royal Arms are most common followed by the ecclesiastical types and then the most important families. It may help with your research? It could easily be an ecclesiastical type rather than the standard arms.

The Finds Research Group suggests that Papworth’s ‘ Ordinary of British Armorials’ is the most accessible listing of medieval heraldry, although is also not complete.
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Thanks for that Oxgirl, another source is always welcome.
It may well be can't be attributed to a family or institution, but I'll keep looking.
Thanks again. :thumbsup:
