Coat of Arms, Warnperton -Hawne (Halton).

This design consists of tincture or (yellow background) with three inescutcheon (small shields). Each one of these three inescutcheon contains the same design; tincture sable (black background), with a large white eagle. The two eagles on either side are reversed so that they face each other.

Warnnerton is a variation of the name 'Waverton'. This is the name of several places, notably in Cheshire. Many people with the name are named after this town. The English Warnnerton family probably originally came from Cheshire.

Sir Edward Bromley married into the Waverton family of Worfield, through marrying Joan Waverton. Joan was daughter and heir of John Waverton of Worfield. A substantial monument to Bromley and his wife was erected in St Peter's Church, Worfield, where he was buried on 12 June 1626.
