The arms of Courtenay on display above Powderham Castle in Devon in 2015, a seat of that family since the 14th century
Fortescue banner of arms in the Fortescue Chapel of St Paul's Church, Filleigh, Devon.

The landed gentry and nobility of Devonshire, like the rest of the English and European gentry, bore heraldic arms from the start of the age of heraldry circa 1200–1215. The fashion for the display of heraldry ceased about the end of the Victorian era (1901) by which time most of the ancient arms-bearing families of Devonshire had died out, moved away or parted with their landed estates.[1]

In the 21st century, a very few ancient families remain in the county represented by direct male descendants, including Courtenay of Powderham, Fulford of Fulford, Kelly of Kelly, Cruwys of Cruwys Morchard, Clifford of Chudleigh, Acland of Killerton and Broadclyst, Wrey of Tawstock. A few ancient Devon estates are still owned by descendants via female lines, for example Castle Hill, Filleigh, Molland, Incledon, Braunton, Hall, Bishop's Tawton, Newnham Park. In most cases, the laws of English heraldry preclude the transmission of paternal arms via a female heiress (other than in the form of quartering), thus most of these inheritors via female lines bring their own paternal heraldry to the estates inherited.

For example, the Irish arms of Gore (Earl of Arran) are now associated with Castle Hill, Filleigh, until 1958 the seat of the last male representative of the Fortescue family, which originated in Devon in the 12th century. In a few cases, however, male heirs via female lines have been required by the legator to seek royal licence to adopt his own arms and surname, otherwise destined to disappearance, in lieu of the legatees own. This was the case with the families most notably of Rolle, Basset, Stucley, Walrond, etc.[citation needed]

(During the reign of King Edward IV (1461-1483) "Kingston" was the seat of Thomas Hext, (Pole, Sir William (d.1635), Collections Towards a Description of the County of Devon, Sir John-William de la Pole (ed.), London, 1791, p. 277; Vivian, p. 484, pedigree of Hext of Kingston) one of whose daughters, Agnes Hext, married Sir Lewis Pollard (Vivian, p. 598, pedigree of Pollard) (c.1465-1526) of Grilstone in the parish of Bishop's Nympton, Devon, Justice of the Common Pleas from 1514 to 1526 (Hoskins, W.G., A New Survey of England: Devon, London, 1959 (first published 1954), p. 338) and a MP for Totnes in 1491) There is however a parish and village named Kingston in South Devon, about 14 miles south-west of Kingston, Staverton, and Thomas Hext "of Kingston", the first member of the family recorded in the Heraldic Visitations of Devon, married a member of the Fortescue family of Whympston, Modbury, about 2 1/2 miles north-west of the village of Kingston.

  93. ^ Welcombe is a parish near Hartland in North Devon, near the Cornish border. Other estates named "Welcombe" are listed in Pole, which may have been the residence of this family, with a very brief pedigree in Vivian, p. 651 with no mention of parish. However, mention is made of Week St Mary (in Cornwall), 13 miles south of Welcombe near Hartland, and the Roache family originated in "Lesawnte" (Lezant?, Cornwall. Lysons, Magna Britannia, Cornwall, Extinct Gentry, states: "Roche or De la Rupe of Roche — traced to the reign of Richard I. Hals says, that this family became extinct, in the male line, in 1357; that Sir William Blundell, husband of the heiress, took the name of Roche, which continued till the reign of Henry VIII., when the last of the family left four daughters, three of whom married Fortescue, Penkevil, and Boscawen. The Roches had married heiresses of Trevelyan and Page, and a coheiress of Durant. Arms of Roche: — Sab. three roaches, two, one, nayant, Argent." The Devon family used a crescent as the difference of a second son. The name was thus Latinized to de (la) Rupe (Lat: rupes-is, "rock") "from the rock", inspired by the French word la roche, le rocher, "rock", from degraded Latin rocca, recorded in use 980 AD (Larousse Lexis, Paris, 1979, p. 1654) from which the English word "rock" (Collins Dict)

The Lisle Letters, 6 vols, University of Chicago Press, Chicago & London, 1981, vol.1, Appendix 25, p. 414. This house, later known as the "Abbot's Lodge", was destroyed in 1942 during World War II bombing. It had been the townhouse of the Abbot of Buckfast Abbey, which Abbey and much of its lands, apparently excluding the Abbot's Lodge, had been acquired following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Sir Thomas Denys (c.1477-1561) of Holcombe Burnell, whose eventual heir (by coincidence) was the Rolle family. It was at the Abbot's Lodge that the Grand Duke of Tuscany was entertained by Sir John Rolle in 1669 and it remained in the Rolle family until 1737 when it was sold to the Rev. John Heskett.(Source:[13]) A photograph of the arms of Sir Henry Rolle (1545-1625) in this building taken shortly before its destruction survives in: Devon Notes & Queries, Vol.9, 1916-17, pp. 97-9: "Armorial Bearings at the Abbot's Lodge", The Close, Exeter.

These are similar to the arms displayed in Exeter Guildhall, Devon, of "John Waye, Sheriff (of Exeter) 1541", shown as Gules, three lucies hauriant in fess argent. They should be distinguished from the completely different arms of Way of St Giles-in-the-Wood, near Great Torrington in Devon, often called "de Via" (i.e. literally "from the way") arms, apparently later adopted by the Pollard family of Way and also by the Davie family (Davy baronets) of Creedy, Devon, which claim their original surname as de Via.

He had several sons, of whom Adam Wyatt (d.1611) was Town Clerk of Barnstaple from 1586 and left a detailed diary which provides valuable information on the town at this period. The identity of the diarist as Adam Wyatt was made by the Devon historian Todd Gray, although traditionally the diarist was thought to have been his brother Philip Wyatt (d.1608) (Lamplugh, Lois, Barnstaple: Town on the Taw, South Molton, 2002, p. 45). Their elder brother Hugh Wyatt of Shillingford, married Lady Mary Bourchier, a daughter of John Bourchier, 2nd Earl of Bath (1499-1561), of nearby Tawstock Court, a highly influential figure in Barnstaple. Another brother, Thomas Wyatt, married Margaret Risdon, an aunt of Tristram Risdon (d.1640) the Devon historian. (Vivian, pp. 823, 107, 648). Pole, p. 508, gives the arms of "Wiatt of Shillingford" slightly differently as: Azure, a chief gules over-all a horse-brake (barnacle) argent
