[Part of the upper section below, based on Visitation (Devon, 1620, Yonge of Colbrook), was originally shown in Young03. It was moved here to facilitate review & expansion.]

Vivian identifies this family's Arms as "Per fess sa. and arg., three lions rampant guardant counterchanged". That indicates that it was not connected to the family shown on Young03.
