Catalan term or phrase: sobrecoc i uixer d'armes
These are two titles at court. Probably the second is usher, but I would like that confirmed if true. Hang about Berni....What on earth would an "usher of arms" be then?

Here is the original context...This guy was:
"sobrecoc i uixer d'armes del rei Pere III de Catalunya-Aragó"
