Brochwicz Herb 1mo
According to Okolski's description there is a red stag on a white field with forelegs raised as if for swift chase after driven animals; a crown is on its neck, and on the helm are peacock feathers. But in a book on Polish emblems I read that it should be a white stag in a red field. Lublin province uses such arms; but Petrasancta cap. 54 is a witness that in Britain, France, Italy, and Germany there flourish a great many houses who sport a stag in their arms. No one gives these arms an occasion; only Okolski adds that they were brought to Poland from Germany. I have not read what families use the arms in their seals, only of the Sobeks of Sulejow, of whom I will speak in the proper place.
Brochwicz Herb 2do
A stag facing the right of the shield, without a crown on its neck. Our Ks. Petrasancta cap. 63 mentions that in Franconia the arms of the house of Hirschberk bear a stag on a silver shield; and the Duchy of Lorraine in ancient times used a stag with golden horns.
