      * 1557 the first mention of chains with scutcheons. NB that by this date the scutcheons
      were on the chains and embroidered cognisances had been around since at least
      1544. Holes in the margins of the scutcheons suggest that at one time they had been
      sleeve badges, and that before 1544 when the embroidered arm badges were being
      made for the waites to wear. Were the scutcheons of 15th C manufacture? Their style
      suggests that apparently none were replaced, so what we have should all be
      original 16 (15?)th C originals.
