I realize that when it comes to miniatures, a mounted sergeant could just as easily be a commoner who had the finances to purchase his own kit, as a poorer member of the minor nobility that could not afford the latest styles.

So, that being said, what sort of devices should I paint on a unit of mounted sergeants?

I did sergeants for a slightly later period, the Principality of the Morea, so post Fourth Crusade.
We have fairly good information about the principality being divided into numbers of knight's fiefs and sergeant's fiefs. My assessment was that some of the sergeants were hired help for the knights and nobles and would wear their devices so they were painted with a shield to match one of the knights I'd painted. Others were independent, owing service to the prince, and could use their own device, usually a cross.
