Notes: "At the Sign of the Silver Horse, and the swimming horse device, comes by way of the legendary Lyonnesse, off the Cornwall, England coast which, by tradition, disappeared beneath the sea centuries ago. From the disaster supposedly only one man survives, who came up out of the sea riding a horse, presiently enough, a silver one." © James Lamar Weygand
