The Marital Arms of the Families of Poley and Hallifax  

 

 The armorial bearings as engraved upon this Victorian Pair of Entrée Dishes by Robert Hennell, hallmarked London 1839, (together with a Pair of Old Sheffield Plate Warmers) are those of the family of Poley impaling those of the family of Hallifax. These armorial bearings denote the marshalling of a marital coat showing on the dexter (the heraldic right on the left as you view the piece) the arms of the husband and on the sinister (the heraldic left on the right as you view it) the arms of the wife. They may be blazoned as follows:

 

Arms:

 (on the dexter)            Quarterly 1st and 4th Or a lion rampant sable (for Poley) and 2nd and 3rd Sable two chevrons between three roses argent (for Weller)

 (on the sinister)          Quarterly 1st and 4th Or on a pile engrailed sable between two fountains three cross crosslets of the first (for Hallifax) and 2nd and 3rd Argent on a bend sable three owls of the field (for Savile)

 Crest:                          A lion rampant sable collared and chained or (for Poley)

 

 These armorial bearings undoubtedly commemorate the marriage of John George Weller Poley, of Boxted Hall in the County of Suffolk and Diana, youngest daughter of Thomas Hallifax, of Chadacre Hall in the County of Suffolk. They were married on the 28th October 1847. John George was born on the 16th January 1812. He served as a Justice of the Peace and Deputy Lieutenant for the County of Suffolk and was the county’s High Sheriff for the year 1857-58. He died on the 5th September 1869.
