The Armorial and Crest are those of Hankey quartering Gall, impaling those of Penton. Specifically they are those of Robert Hankey, son of Thomas Hankey, and his wife Anne Penton, daughter of the late Henry Penton of Eastgate House, Winchester, and sometime M.P. for that city. They married in 1764. Anne was the sister of Captain Henry Penton (1736-1812), who succeeded his father as M.P. for Winchester. Henry developed some of the family lands south of Islington into London's first planned suberb which was duly named after him, this being Pentonville. He appears, however, to have been socially ruined by scandal. He had an affair with his wife's maid, a Miss Judd, causing his wife to leave him. He did, however, manage to marry her in 1808, five days after his wife's death !
