Mr. Constable has
proved his right to these arms (Pedigree; College of Arms) as a direct
descendant of Sir Robert Constable, Lord of Newark Castle, who married
Katherine Manners, daughter of George Manners, Baron ROS. Sir Robert
Constable was a son of Sir Marmaduke Constable, Lord of Everingham who
had both the Constable of Flambrough coat of Arms, also the ' golden
ship ' coat of arms.
These are the ancient arms of Constable of Everingham and Flamburgh,
Yorkshire (Burke’s General Armory and Foster's pedigrees).
