According to Angelia Howard,
"This is listed and illustrated erroneously in CAP I as 'King', which seems to have almost identical arms except for the tiny fish at the bottom of the shield, which was not clear enough for David (Howard) to see on a photo when he was working on this volume in the 1960s. However, it is indeed O'Neill, and the arms are as the quartering on the 'Baillie quartering O'Neill' service (CAP 2, p.570)."
