Photo of Warton/Wharton tomb one of four panels in Kirkby Stephen Parish Church, Cumbria.
This coat of arms is an unusual and very difficile example of quartering: The primary division is two halves or rather a half on the left as the paternal coat of arms and two quarters on the right as two maternal coats of arms.
The left half bears again typical initial quartering, i.e. the paternal arms (Wharton: sable, a maunch argent; on a bordure or, eight pairs of lions gambs saltire wise erased gules.) and may be a most unconventional quartering of Wharton with the cross coat of arms which we see again on the far right.) in first and 4th quarter i.e. upper left and lower right and identical 2nd and 3rd quarters, which are in turn multi-quartered and would represent the earliest maternal line and most likely of an heiress.
From the pedigree above the coat of arms so quartered with Wharton would be Warcop, Conyers, Lowther or Musgrave, although the Heralds may have put all of these together in one unusual grant.
However we see that Agnes/Margaret Warcope's mother was Thomasin Ratclyff, dau of Thomas Ratclyff of Derwentwater and Margaret Parr, dau of Sir William Parr, which brings us to a rather large choice for sub-quarterings.
The bottom right quarter would be the latest maternal line has Furnival on 6 martlets, ie., small birds. Next on the left of that is Ufflete/Usflete with 3 fleur-de-lis on it. Hence, the coupled honored with this armorial bearing on the tomb is probably the Wharton with the closest Usflete connection
Above in the upper right quarter is usually a more remote maternal line that it is is Stapleton with a lion rampant on it as the first third on the left, which we find above as Sir Tomas Wharton 1st Baron and Eleanor Stapleton were parents of Thomas, 2nd Baron Wharton, who married Anne Ratclyffe dau of Robert Ratclyffe, 1st Earl of Sussex, which is likely to be the 3rd the three slanted bars have yet to be identified and right third seems to consist of a block above and an X cross below, also in need of identification.
