Guy Ferrand Ferrand (1881-1946)
I have only one copy of my grandfather's bookplate, that in his copy of
his grandfather's "Fragments of Bingley History", which I was delighted
to be given after administering his daughter-in-law's estate in the 1990s.
He had a slightly curious bookplate with six quarterings on it, but only four distinct arms. I wonder why he did not have them arranged as a simple foursome? There is a possibility that the three Ferrand arms were being shown both as his father's arms and as his heiress great grandmother's arms (Sarah Ferrand who married Currer Busfeild); but this only accounts for two of the Ferrand arms, not the third.
The six arms are:
The bookplate would date from anytime in his adult life, though I suspect not from after his desertion of his wife in c. 1927. The artwork on the mantling is very similar to that on the exemplification of my paternal grandfather's arms in 1907 which might well be a suitable date to centre the bookplate on.
