OK, now that I have seen it, I agree.
Curious error by the artist. I suspect the author in expanding John's
coat intended the Boville arms in quadrant 5, but forgot what he was
doing and mistakenly used John's unexpanded coat (as used for his
siblings) rather than a solely paternal coat, hence the Goushill/
chequy quarterly in 5.

Could it be or and vert (Hakeford)? I would think if they were going
to quarter Warenne they would do Fitz Alan as well. I have a Goushill
pedigree somewhere. I will have to dig it out.
