The arms are those of Egerton quarterly with those of Grey, with those of Jackson on an escutcheon of pretence, as borne by Sir John Grey-Egerton, 8th baronet.
Egerton married in 1795 Maria, daughter and sole heiress of Thomas Scott Jackson, one of the Directors of the Bank of England. In 1814 he took the surname Grey-Egerton, having succeeded to the Egerton baronetcy upon the death of Thomas Egerton, Viscount Grey de Wilton and Earl of Wilton. Egerton was a member of Parliament for Chester from 1807-1818 and a successful race horse owner. He died without issue in 1825 when the title devolved on his brother the Rev. Sir Philip Grey-Egerton.
