This coat of arms is to be found in (possibly 14th century) stained glass in a church in Gloucestershire, in recognition of the ap Adam family's local connections. The first known record of the use of the ap Adam Arms is in the Roll of Arms for the Battle of Falkirk 1298, when they were borne by Sir John ap Adam (recorded as 'Johan de Badham'). The Battle of Falkirk was one of the major battles in the First War of Scottish Independence. Led by King Edward I of England, the English army defeated the Scots, led by William Wallace.
