Gurnet, gournet, or gurnard(lat. trigla): this fish, found on our coats, occurs in the crest of one Norfolk family and in the arms of one Cornish family; in the latter case on account of the local name by which it is known, namely, tubbe fish. With it may be associated the mullet, which is sometimes found blazoned in the arms of WAYE, and the French rouget, which appears to include both kinds of fish.
