First one is for the Earl of Portsmouth (Wallop family) Click Here although the mirror and comb are in the wrong hands in that image.

Still working on the others.
Thanks Kev, much appreciated... :g50: any ideas while the mirror and comb are in the wrong hands?

Crest example pics are often quite different to how they should be, and when they're not the same as the crest description...it's usually the description that's correct...as is the case with this Earl of Portsmouth crest...
