The Norreys of Ockwells originally used the arms of their ancestors, the Ravenscroft family, and only later adopted that of Norreys of Speke.
This quartering ought probably to be, Argent, a chevron between 3 ravens' heads, sable: being really the shield of Ravenscroft of Cotton End. On the marriage of the heiress of that family with John Norreys of Bray, co. Berks., temp. Edw. III., he assumed his wife's Arms. Anne, daughter of Sir Wm. Norreys, married William, grandfather of Sir Thomas Wroughton. (See "Wilts Visit." A.D. 1565, in Harl. MS., No. 1565, p. 31.)
