The arms of Sir Edward Clarence Kerrison, 2nd Bt., M.P. on his marriage (1844) to Caroline, daughter of Henry Fox-Strangways, 3rd Earl of Ilchester. The caltraps on his shield are age-old weapons of defense against cavalry and with the crest of augmentation mark the distinguished service of the first baronet, General Kerrison (d.1853) against the Napoleonic armies. The Fox component of the shield contains the fleur-de-lis granted by Charles II to Sir James Fox (1627-1718) for his resource in finding funds to support that king's exile.
Edward Kerrison (1821-86) of Brome Hall was known as a great friend of agricultural laborers in Eye, Suffolk which he represented in Parliament and to which town he brought the railway.
