From the catalogue, An Exhibition of Medieval Brass Rubbings by Kathleen H. Cairns. "Sir Roger de Trumpington, 1289, a crusader in 1270, the last crusade led by Edward I as Prince. In armor of the surcoat period. He has a hound at his feet instead of a lion. The surcoat was worn to protect the knight in his armor from the blazing sun. It also bore his heraldic emblems at jousts. Sir Roger rests his head on a conical tilting helmet." The same description appears in the exhibition catalog for the Botetourt Gallery and Museum, College of William and Mary, 1971-1972.
