said applicant into consideration, and having examined into the circumstances, am pleased to
comply therewith, and by virtue of the power unto me given by His Majesty’s Letters Patent under
the Great Seal, and by the authority of the same, have ratified and confirmed and by these
presents do exemplify, ratify and confirm unto the said Francis Keith Berry The Arms following,

ences according to the laws of Arms, and without the let, hindrance, molestation, interupption, control-
ment or challenge of any manner of person or persons whatsoever.
