Possible origins of the family :

Sir Roger de Mortimer ~ Barry a chief paly and corners gyronny Or and Azure, an inescutcheon Ermine.

The other knight (see de Gifford above) credited in the annals of the time with the death of Llywelyn, Roger de Mortimer, subsequently became a baron and built the castle at Chirk. The artist confused him with Roger de Mortimer, Earl of March, lover of the queen of Edward II, who bore these arms with the inescutcheon Argent not Ermine.
