The coat-of-arms above belonged to Sir Hugh Kennedy who was a knight from Scotland that fought with the French and Joan of Arc as part of the Auld Alliance. Kennedy was one of thousands of Scots who arrived in 1420 to help Charles VII fight their common enemy the English. He distinguished himself at the battle of Baugé in 1421 and was rewarded by Charles VII with the right to display a quarter of France (the fleur-de-lis on blue) on his coat-of-arms. Kennedy fought at the battle of Orleans with Joan of Arc and was with her at all her great victories as well as the coronation of Charles VII. He was still fighting alongside Joan in 1430 at Lagny just before she went to Compiegne and was captured.
