    Dillon, of Chimwell, in Bratton Fleming, and of Wroughton and Hart, in Heanton Punchardon. ? Thomas Dillon settled in this county in consequence of having married a co-heiress of Fleming. Chimwell was sold in the reign of Charles I. The Dillons of Chimwell removed about the middle of the seventeenth century to Farthingoe, in Northamptonshire.
    Arms: ? Argent, a lion rampant between 4 crescents surmounted by as many etoiles, G., over all a fesse, Azure.
    Crest: ? A demi-lion issuing and holding a crescent, surmounted by an etoile, as in the arms.
    Had a son Robert who married Isabella, dau of William Fortescue of Prudeston.
    [This?] Nicholas Dillon, of Chimwell, Co. Devon, was the great-grandfather of Robert Dillon, of Farthinghoe, who appears to have acquired the Farthinghoe property in 1599.
    (Notes and queries? - Page 25. 1930.)
    The will of Nicholas Dillon of Chymwell was made on 19 June 1514 and proved 20 Jan 1517/18.
    About 1902 the seal of Nicholas Dillon was found at ?St. Cross, [Hoddesdon, Herts], the residence of Mr. T. S. Hillas-Drake?.
    Why a Devon seal in Herts?;
    The grand-father of Nathaniell Drew of Brozbourne [Broxbourne] had married into this branch of the Dillon family, and that Nathaniell Drew's father is there described as of Bratton Fleming, co. Devon. This seal had evidently been brought with them to be lost where it has now been recovered, a spot which, I believe, has only been built upon in recent years.
