The Pursglove Family Crest is a Hare.

The original crest was used by the Purslow family from Shropshire.  This was a Hare sejant with ermine.

When Bishop Robert Pursglove (Sylvester, Suffragian Bishop of Hull) adopted the crest, he kept the hare, but removed the ermine tracing.

This plain hare design is generally accepted as the crest of Bishop Pursglove
