Henry Machyn in St Giles without Cripplegate, London - 30 September, 1562
The thirtieth day of September was rails made at St. Giles without Cripplegate and hanged with black and arms for the gentle knight Sir Harry Grey, and was brother unto the Earl of Kent, with two heralds of arms: Mr. Clarenceux, king of arms, and Rouge Cross, pursuivant of arms. And he bore the helmet and crest, Mr. Clarenceux, the coat of arms. And then the standard and banners of arms and the clerks singing and then the corpse covered with a black velvet pall, with a white cross of satin and arms upon it, and many mourners in black.
