Sir John Nicholl Blazon & Achievement
« on: Tuesday 25 September 12 21:54 BST (UK) »
Dear Friends,

I am seeking the 'Blazon' and an image of the 'Achievement' of Sir John Nicholl
of Merthyr Mawr, Glamorgan,  born 1759 died 1838. Any help welcome.

Thank you so much.

According to Burke's General Armory (not necessarily the most reliable, but a starting point at least), his arms were:

Sable, three pheons argent
Crest: a Cornish chough wings elevated proper perched on the battlements of a tower argent

Burke list several bearers of the name Nicholl with the same arms and crest, but does not indicate how they are related and so entitled to the same arms.
