Pain Peverell arms Pain Peverell Pain Peverell arms

Pain Peverell, an eminent soldier, and highly famed for his martial enterprizes, was standard-bearer to Duke Robert in the Holy Land. He afterwards obtained from King Henry the First, the Barony of Brune in Cambridgeshire. His descendants are families bearing the name of Peverell, and those of Peche Watervile. The arms given in the engraving differ from those generally assigned to Peverell, viz. -quarterly gu and verrey; but I give these on the authority of Harl. M.S.S. 807, as being temp. Conqueror.
