"I cannot but misA* (he says) the boldness and ignorance of thai herald, »V> save to Mainwaring (late of Peover) the elder, ihe .■wrUfing of ihe Earl of Chester's arms; for if he ought ■< ''gat to quarter that coat, then must he he descended nsi a co-heir to the Earl of Chester, but be was not;

for the co-heirs of Earl Hugh married four of the greatest peers in the kingdom." Upon this question of legitimacy, a paper was ensued between Sir Peter Leicester and Sir Thomas Mainwaring, and the matter was finally referred to the judges, of whose decision Wood thus records :— "At an assize held at Chester in 1075, Ihe controversy was decided by the justices Itinerant, who, as I have heard, adjudged the right to Maiuwariug."
