Bishop William Bateman of Norwich
?-1355 (died at Avignon. Bishop of Norwich 1344-55)
Sable a crescent Ermine within a bordure engrailed Argent. [1: Seal, 5]
In books held in the library and presented by the founder, we find the figure: ``Sable between the horns of a crescent Ermine, a cross patee Argent.''.  also quotes the statute book (probably Dr Hervy) as saying that the bishop's father William (a bailiff in Norwich) and elder brother Bartholemew (a knight) bore ``Sable a coat sylver and Sables thre cressants ermyn with a Scochion engrayled''. The second brother (an abbot) had two crescents.
