    Notes 
    • Founder of the Rugby School, 2nd Second Warden of the Grocers Company 1566, sometime connected with the household of Princess Elizabeth, and granted arms by her when Queen 1559, viz., Azure on a fess engrailed between three griffins’ heads erased or, a fleur de lis of the first enclosed by two roses gules, which are now the arms of Rugby School. He died 1567 leaving issue by Elizabeth, his wife, a son.
      There is is some question of Lawrence Sherrif's position in our Ancestry. Sue Gardner Shreve, a long-time Shreve researcher, wrote a letter of inquiry to R. MacLean, Librarian and Archivist of the Rugby School in Warwickshire, England some years back. MacLean returned the information that (this) Lawrence Sheriff had died without issue. This information, of course, contradicts the information given in The Landed Gentry.
