410 NOTES AND QUERIES. [12 ax. MAY ST. ms. THOMAS ANDEEWES. He officiated as Sheriff at the execution of Mary Stuart. Biographical information about him desired. G. R. VISCOUNTESS ROCHFORD, sister-in-law of Anne Boleyn, and daughter or grand- daughter of Henry Parker, Lord Morley. She was beheaded with Catherine Howard. I should be glad of any biographical details concerning her. G. R. HAGEN FAMILY. Burke' s ' General Armory.' gives the following for this name : Hagen (Bermondsey), Az. a chevron or between two doves close in chief arg., and in base an oak- tree ppr. Crest, A dove rising arg. Hagen, Or, a fesse between three cramp-irons sa. Crest, A stork's head erased ppr. I should be glad of any information regarding the families bearing these arms. From what part of the Continent did they come to England, for the name is obviously foreign ? Was either related to the Pomeranian family of Hagen or von Hagen, and, if not, what were the arms of the latter ? LAUBANCE M. WULCKO. 142, Kinfauns Road, Gcodmayes, Essex. BRASS ORNAMENTS ON HARNESS. Is there any name for the brass ornaments on cart- horse harness ? I believe I used to know a name for them. E. E. COPE. HERALDIC : IDENTIFICATION OF ARMS SOUGHT. Could anyone kindly say to what families the following quarterings belong ? Argent on a bend vert three stags' heads cabossed of the first, impaling Azur a cross engrailed ermine. I think they are of East Anglian origin. C. S. C. (B/C.). THE ROYAL ARMS. In the Royal arms of Edward III. the fleurs-de-lis are in the dexter quarter. Why ? M. H. C. W. ARMS AND CREST, LLANGOLLEN. Will any reader kindly tell me the- name of the family to whom the following arms, quar- terly, belong ? They may be seen in an ancient stained-glass window in Llangollen Church. 1. Gules, a griffin segreant, or. 2. Sable, three Danish axes in fess, argent. 3. Azure, the sun in splendour, or. 4. Argent, a lion rampant gules. Crest, the sun rising out of a bank of clouds. LEONARD C. PRICE. Essex Lodge, Ewell. " INTUE." This unsightly verb was coined by Prior Bede Vaughan in his ' Life and Labours of S. Thomas of Aquin,' vol. ii., p. 225, thus : "Through the clearness of th& intellectual eye could intue the high truths of morality and religion.' r Are there additional instances of the use- of this bastard coinage in lieu of " perceive " Or " see into " ? If so> they richly deserve to be nailed to the counter of verbal mon- strosities. J. B. McGovERN. St. Stephen's Rectory, C.-on-M., Manchester. PTJDENS. In a booklet on Roman explora- tions I have read the following passage : Martial mentions Pudens as his friend, and addresses to him some of his epigrams, in one calling him. Pudens the Senator ; in another he says, in consequence of the change of religion of his friend Pudens, he can no longer submit to him his epigrams to criticize before publication as he had hitherto been accustomed to do ; in another he mentions the marriage with Claudia ; in another the birth of their first child ; and in yet another the death of Pudens. I can find only two of Martial's epigrams which mention Pudens : iv. 13, which is addressed to Rufus and describes Pudeiis, who is about to marry Claudia Peregrina, as the author's friend ; and iv. 29, which is addressed to Pudens and contains a humorous reference to the number of the author's books. I shall be grateful if any reader will point me to passages which. I have over- looked. T. H. SOULBY. MAGAZINE ARTICLE WANTED. Subsequently to the retirement of Sir David Harrel from the Under-Secretaryship for Ireland in 1902, an article appeared in one of the monthlies which referred to him, and most correctly described him as "an ideal Under-Secret ary." The title of the article and date of its publication will much oblige. E. W. SIB WALTER SCOTT : REFERENCE WANTED. Southey (' Commonplace Book,' 4th Series, p. 626) quotes Jeremy Taylor (vol. xii., p. 28) as saying : " He that begins without reason, hath reason enough to leave off, by perceiving , he had no reason to begin." Sir Walter Scott has recently been quoted as saying : " When a man has not a good reason for doing a thing, he has one good reason for letting it alone." Where does Scott say this ? JOHN B. WAINE WRIGHT. AUTHOR WANTED. A man may cry, " Church, Church," at every word* With no more piety than other people ; A daw's not reckon'd a religious bird Because it keeps a-cawing from a steeple. Baling, H. E. T.
