15 John Montacute, Earl of Salisbury ca1350-1400 Argent, three lozenges conjointed in fesse Gules. Harrison’s Garter Armorial, No 90. Note that there is a Garter stall plate for him but it is a replacement made in 1741-2, It is reproduced within “Illustrated Catalogue of the Stall Plates of the Knights of the Most honourable and Noble Order of the Garter” commissioned by the Dean and Canons of Windsor and published in 2014, page S7-1. Unfortunately this stallplate erroneously calls him “Gilliam de Montagu” and is very obviously a near copy of that for his uncle William Montacute, 2nd earl. William the uncle is given the Man arms but this has no adequate support and, combined with the naming error of this plate, I am drawn to the conclusion that this John would not, and should not, have born the Man arms but could have born the Monthermer arms brought to him by his heiress mother, Margaret de Montherme Montacute.png - 33Kb
