Tina writes, "I am searching for information re: an achievement of arms attributed to Sir Carolus Emmons (sometimes called Major General Carolus Emmons). The arms were described by the following phrase; 'He beareth Gules, five increscents Argent by the name Emmons' (does not seem to be a proper blazon)and an inscription 'These Arms were granted by King William and Queen Mary to Carolus Emmons in consequence of two victorious battles in the field of blood.' I have seen several versions of these arms none of which match the blazon. Some with and some without a helm and crest...."

Tina, what is your source for this? I can't find Emmons in Burke's "General Armory". Also, ... it is not unusual for a shield (arms) to lack a crest (which sits atop the helm). Not everyone is granted a crest with their arms.
