Thrale coat of arms
Thrale family of the City of St Albans
Richard Thrale's 1973 book A New Thraliana shows the arms of the Thrale family of the City of St Albans in the County of Hertford, which is the most well researched and is most likely to be authentic.
The Blazon comprises a Shield per fess azure and paly of ten or1 and gules, in chief a saltire couped between two pheons points upwards or, and the Crest, between two tuns an oak tree proper, fructed or.
Monument of John Thrale, St Albans Cathedral 1704
The extravagant monument of John Thrale in the South wing of the St. Alban's Cathedral in Hertfordshire, includes a colourful coat of arms at its summit. This is the oldest Thrale coat of arms known to me. This comprises a Paly of ten Or and Gules, with the Crest, Out of a Ducal Coronet an oak tree vert2.
David D. Thrall Jr. sent me this image of a Thrall coat of arms on 13 June 2002. David said…
Hello, well I was certainly surprised to find this site. I have been interested in tracing the heritage but this is the most information I have found in one place. I was curious about the coat of arms, I have seen one, and have it at home, but reading your description I wonder if it is correct. Do you by chance have a picture of our coat of arms?? Well thanks for the time.
David also sent me the below image of a commercially produced account of the family name.
