This image shows “the hatchment of the widow of a bishop; ... here the lozenge-shaped shield is parted per pale. Baron and femme:—first, parted paleways, on the dexter side the arms of the bishopric, on the sinister side the paternal arms of the bishop. Second, the arms of the femme: the widow of a bishop has a right to exhibit the arms of the see over which her husband presided, as though his death has dissolved all connection with the see. She has a right to emblazon all that will honour her deceased husband.” -Hall, 1862


Hall, Arthur The Manual of Heraldry (London, England: J. S. Virtue & Co., 1862)
