AN EAST RIDING ARMORY 10

BEAN Argent, a chevron between three goat’s heads erased gules.
Arms of James Bean (d. 1767) on a monumental inscription in Aldbrough church. Bean was a former plantation owner in Jamaica who purchased Wentworth House in Aldbrough . He may not have been of local origin.
I have seen no other arms for the surname Bean, and have found no authority for the arms of James Bean.
