At the Visitation of Essex in 1612, Edward Coe entered a pedigree of his family, claiming for arms:  Argent, three piles wavy meeting near the base gules between twelve martlets sable.

The heralds acknowledged his descent and right to the coat of arms.

The Hawley Coat of Arms: Vert a saltier, or a St. Andrews' cross, engrailed argent. Crest: A dexter arm in armour proper, garnished, holding in the hand a spear, in bent sinister, pointed downward proper. Motto: "Suivez Moi."
