The Scottish Arms of Clive A Boxell

This is a combination coat of arms: the blue lion rampant with a forked tail from the Count of Mortain was attested in France before the Conquest of Britain in 1066 and the Silver Frettes of the Earl of Eu were also issued in France before the Conquest. The Earl commemorated his Viking ancestry with the diamond pattern of the early Viking sails from the Gotland area of Sweden.

Boxells held land in the Pevensey and Hastings Rapes under both these lords just after the Conquest together with Bugsell Manor at Salehurst in Sussex and therefore in effect were also guarding the escape route for William the Conqueror should it have been necessary. Boxells were required to clear and control the Anderida (Pevensey) Forest and the Ashdown Forest for the Kings hunting. They held Bugsell Manor for over 400 years together with divers Manors elsewhere.

Earliest reference to Boxell/Boxall name is as Anglo Saxon Thegns in 765AD at Lindfield Sussex. Sir Alleyne de Buxhulle (Boxell) was Constable of the Tower of London, Lord Chamberlain of England and a Knight of the Garter under Edward III - he bore the same arms and he also held the castle of St Saveur le Vicompte in France during the 100 years war and was chief of the captains under Sir Robert Knollys.

The Standard of Clive A Boxell

John Boxell also in my family tree was Secretary of State to Queen Mary in the 16th Century and he informed Elizabeth 1 that she would be the next Queen if she paid off Mary's debts and adhered to the 'Old Religion'.
