Dutch Coat of arms

Dutch Coat of arms

I can't quite make it out but the black and white half of the arms of John Affleck of Dalham Hall. The impaled arms must be those of his wife Neeltje (née Schape, of Amsterdam) 1663-1729. They were the parents of Gilbert Affleck, MP and grandparents of the first two Affleck Baronets of Dalham Hall.

Does anybody recognise the impaled arms. Either what they would actually be, or who they would belong to? I'm guessing they would be Dutch Burgher Arms of Neeltje's father Gilbert a merchant.

Logically the impaled arms should be those of Schape for John Affleck's wife, but his parents were Thomas Affleck and Ann, daughter of Matthias Petersen of Ocland, Sweden, according to this website

Here's the entry in the 7th edition of Gentlemen of Coat Armour, A C Fox-Davies 1929 for Affleck of Dalham

The date of 1899 should be the date the arms were confirmed to another generation.

No image I'm afraid.

Fox-Davies does not mention the Dutch family I'm afraid, or the Swedish and the pedigree does not go back that far in this edition, the family are not mentioned at all in the 3rd edition.

Quarters 1 and 4 belong to the SCHAAP/SCHAEP/SCHAP family from Amsterdam. Quarters 2 and 3 may give clues to lineage
