Dodington Family History

Coat of Arms

The original of the Marriott Dodington coat of arms is at the College of Arms in London, and a painted copy may be obtained for about $1000 upon application. The sketch referenced below was made from memory after a visit.

A 1623 description of the Dodington Coat of Arms is "Quarterly 1st and 4th, Sable, 3 hunting horns Argent. 2nd and 3rd, Argent, a chevron between 3 talbots' heads erased gules".   I have not seen a  representation of this text:: below are  mostly Dodington quartered with Marriott, and one which has just the horns.  The M-D  CofA has talbot dog on top however.
