About Hugh de Hastings 'Lord of Fillonley'

The Hastings coat of arms was one of the first created. Its romantic origin centers on an ancestor of Emma de Hastings -- Hugh de Hastings of Barawell. He received Barawell upon marriage to Erneburga de Flamville. Shortly after 1130, Hugh was in a jousting tournament. He carried a plain gold shield sans markings of any kind. Hugh noticed other knights displayed favors from their wives or sweethearts. He approached his wife in the stands and asked for a favor that would bring him luck. Having nothing suitable on hand, Lady Erneburga is said to have torn off the sleeve of her gown and draped it over the shield of her husband. Shortly after that, the Hastings Sleeve had became the Hastings coat of arms. It is not known if the sleeve brought Hugh de Hastings luck in the tournament.
