Coat of arms copperplate 17th century Haslewood

This image is from a copperplate engraving, and shows part of a roll of arms from Richard Blome's Britannia, an atlas published in 1673. It features the coats of arms of people who contributed towards the completion of the work a?? starting with King Charles II. Each page includes 35 coats of arms, presented here in groups of two. These coats of arms are from folio (page) 10 of the work. In old English, ans appeared as a longs (which looks like an f'), while ss appeared as fs'. Com was an abbreviation for County'. A number is assigned to each benefactor. Here are the accompanying texts (followed by modernised English where appropriate): 293.
