Mowbray Herald of Arms Extraordinary was an English officer of arms. Though an officer of the crown, Mowbray Herald Extraordinary was not a member of the corporation of the College of Arms in London. Sir William le Neve appears to have been appointed to the office from 29 June 1624 until his appointment as York Herald the following year.[1] The office was recreated in January 1695 for Robert Plot, who was made Registrar of the College of Heralds just two days later,[2] and was subsequently held by Joseph Edmondson.
