"The Portcullis of herse (herse sarazine) so well known as a Tudor badge occurs not very frequently as an armonial charge. Argent, a portcullis sable, chained proper, is a coat of REYNOLDS in England; and in Scotland is recorded in Workman’s M.S. as the ‘armes parlantes’ of Windygate (!) more generally borne as Gules, a portcullis or, which is also the coat of Apelvoisin in France."
