    Regarding Olivers, known also as Hyde Hall, East End or Southall, there is this:

    In 1490 this estate belonged to Matilda Exton in her own right, and she together with John Barbour, her son by a former marriage, conveyed it to Richard Fyfehid alias Lowe and other trustees, (fn. 118) who granted it in 1492 to Leonard Hyde of Throcking and others. (fn. 119) These appear to have been acting only as trustees. In 1506 they transferred the 'manor' to Sir Robert Drury, kt., and others, who in turn conveyed to Thomas Sandon. (fn. 120)

  5.   Post by Ann Saldler: Arms of Sir Timothy Fishyd alias Lowe 1603.

    Quotes the Richmond Herald:

    " We have a full copy of the text of the document by which Cooke gave, granted, ratified and confirmed the arms and crest. This states that Timothy Lowe's great grandfather was for the most part known as Richard Fishyd alias Lowe but that at the end of his life he used the alternative name of Fifield rather than Fishyd and that his descendants subsequently used the name Fifield alias Lowe."

    It is not clear how reliable the information given Cooke is, since the Herald also states that "[t]here is evidence to suggest that Timothy and other members of the family were using different arms prior to 1592." ("Fishyd" is probably a misreading for "Fifhyd".)
