This dog is the crest of Sir Simonds D’Ewes (1602-50), an antiquarian writer and a member of Parliament;

“He was on intimate terms with all the great antiquaries of the age, but, unlike such men as Selden, Twysden, Dugdale, Holdsworth, and many others who were more or less associated with him, D’Ewes had very little constructive ability; he was mere copyist and collector, though as a collector he has rarely been surpassed for conscientiousness, industry and accuracy…” (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography)
