General Information
Coat of Arms
The Arms of James Hebblethwaite of Sedbergh are: 
Argent two pallets Azure. On a Canton d'Or a Mullett Sable pierced gules
A demi-wolf ermine issuant from a ducal coronet Or, En Avant
The mullet pierced (5-pointed star) is still used to mark Hebblethwaite Hall sheep to this day. 
Harold Hebblethwaite, writing to the Sedbergh & District History Society in 1988, stated that there are at least three examples of the Arms: in the church at Kirkby Lonsdale, Cumbria; Bridlington Priory (Hatchments); and the old dining room at St John's College, Cambridge. The heraldry is similar to the Lancastrian Plantagenets with the difference of the Canton d'Or and the Pierced Mullett.
