The arms from the tomb of Lady Dalyson, daughter of William Tuthill, have already been described.
[NOTE: The book, The History and Antiquities of the County of Norfolk, by Clavering, located in the Library of the University of California, gives a rather detailed acount of the ownership of Thorpe Hall Manor in Saxlingham beginning in the 1100's down thru the 1600's and does not mention the Tuthill family. The National Archives of the UK has documentation of the succession of the manor as well, again, no mention of the Tuthill family. - KLM]
