Help needed with family coat of arms

Some time ago someone said to me that the shape of the shield in the CoA of my family, was an English shape. Before that, I always thought it was German or Polish. According to him my family name 'Hobbel' could well be a degeneration of 'Hobelar'. Especially because of the simple shape of the family crest, he thought it to be an old crest. Is there anybody here that can confirm any of this?
The picture of the FC isn't the most clear one. It's a family grave stone inside a church here in The Netherlands. I am a direct descendant of the man burried there.
