So shall it be with my father: he shall be
called a prince over his posterity, holding
the keys of the patriarchal priesthood over the kingdom of God on earth, even the Church
of the Latter Day Saints, and he shall sit in the general assembly of patriarchs, even in
council with the Ancient of Days when he shall sit and all the patriarchs with him and shall
enjoy his right and authority under the direction of the Ancient of Days.

MARR DATE 1335 (LIC) MARR PLACE Of, Castle, Badlesmere, Kent, England Installed Knight of the Garter 1439. He was a soldier of distinction, holding the rank Lieutenant General of Brittany, and in 1350 was made warden of the marches toward Scotland. DeBohun (Boone) Chapter V- In 1340 Humphrey IX was present at the naval victory of Sluys on 24th June. In 1342 he was appointed the King's Lieutenant and Capt. General in Brittany and defeated the Franch at Morlaix and took La Roche Darrien by assault. On conclusion of a truce for three years, he returned to England and the next year accompanied Henry, Earl of Lancaster into Scotland, marching to the relief of Loughmaben Castle in Dumfriesshire of which he was Governor. He was again in Brittany at the close of which he was Governor. He was again in Brittany at the close of the year and in 1345-46; took part in Edward's campaign in the latter year, distinguishing himself in a skirmish on the Seine and being present at the battle of Cressy on 26 August. During the next two years, he continued to serve in France and in 1349 was appointed to a commission to conclude a truce. In 1350 was appointed a warden of the marches toward Scotland and in the next year was appointed to negotiate a peace with that kingdom. In 1352 he was commissioner of an array of troops in Essex and Hereford to oppose the landing of the Franch. He was again in the north in 1353 and the following years and in 1355, served in the French campaign. In 1356 he was commissioned to treat with David Bruce and in 1357-59 was abroad in Gascony. He died September 1360 and was buried at Walden in Essex. Bohun who was K. G. married Elizabeth, daughter of Bartholomew Badlesmere, and widow of Edmund Mortimer. His son Humphrey X, Earl of Hereford and Essex, united in one person the three Earldoms of Hereford, Essex, and Northampton. The 3 Earldoms and broad lands of the Bohuns were divided between two Co-heiresses. Both married members of the Royal house. The elder, Eleanor, was given in marriage in 1374 to Thomas of Woodstock, 7th son of Edward III; the younger, Mary to Henry, Earl of Derby, son of John o of Gaunt and afterward Henry IV in 1380/81. From these two houses sprang the houses of Lancaster and Stafford. The Boone Garter Stall-Plate - Of all the world's organizations of honor, the English Order of the Garter ranks first, and to William de Bohun, Earl of Northampton, belongs the distinction of being one of its founders. His son Humphrey de Bohun X, Earl of Hereford, Essex, and Northampton, became one of its earliest members. A record of the Arms and Crests of Knights of the Garter was preserved for future generations by means of Stall-Plates, the most cherished heirloom of those families who were so fortunate as to have one. Of these insignia of highest honors, Boutell says: "The Stall-Plates ofthe Garter, a square or oblong plate of gilt copper upon which the Arms of Knights of the Garter and the Bath are emblazoned and fixed on the stalls of the Chapels of St. George of Winsor, and Henry VII at Westminister are among the most interesting and valuable of the historical records of Heraldry England possesses." The Garter Stall-Plate of Humphrey de Bohun X (d. 1372), the work of the best heraldic of the time (1444), is shown as the frontispiece of this article. Still existing, it decorates his Stall, the ninth of the sovereign's side. Colors of the Boone Armorial Bearings - The central figure of the Garter Stall-Plate is the great Helm of silver with its silver chain, below which hangs the knight's shield blazoned with ancient arms of the House of Boone. On a field of blue is charged the Hereford silver Bend between two gold Bendlets, each separated from the silver Bend by a narrow strip of blue. The Bend divides the six golden lions in groups of three. Resting upon the Helm is the Chapeau (Cap of Estate), of red velvet surrounded by an up turned rim of white ermine with the black tips. The Chapeau supports a crowned Lion of gold, Armed (with claws) and Langued (mouth open, with tongue out). The claws, tongue, and eyes are red. Draped over the Helm, as a protection from the sun when in battle, is a Manteling of foliage, of which the front is Erminois (black tips on gold field), and the back is blue, with the veins of the leaves in gold. The crescent-shaped eyeslit, between the vizor and the chin-piece, should be shaded a dark blue, or black, to show the opening for sight. (Fox-Davies' Art in Hearldry, and Hope's Heraldry For Craftsmen and Designers show many garter plates in colors. These books will greatly aid in the proper coloring of the plate shown in the frontispiece. Fox-Davis' gives full information as to the best methods for applying colors. For Gules use vermilion; for Azure use French blue; for Or use shell gold, mixing the gold in the shell to the proper consistency for painting and apply evenly, using a clean sable brush, dipped in water; if not sufficient, go over it again; for Argent use aluminum. The gold and silver should be used first. To burnish a bright surface, gently rub the finger lightly over the dull metal surface, and burnish again without covering with paper. Vellum, Bristal-board, card-board or paper may be used, but Bristal-board is the most suitable. See "Art in Heraldry," p. 412.)
