The charge is comparatively frequent in early (13th to 14th century) heraldry, but becomes unfamiliar in classical heraldry of the Early Modern period. Examples of this charge:
- Baron Mohun (Moun) (temp. Henry III, Edward III); hence Earl of Somerset. The Mohun maunch was re-interpreted as a pair of wings in the arms of Seymour.
- Thony (temp. Edward II)
- Baron Hastings (temp. Edward III, 1295 creation, also shown in the Gelre Armorial, c. 1390s) and in coats of arms derived from the Hastings one, e.g. Edmund Grey, 1st Earl of Kent (d. 1490).
