| The Visitations of Cheshire 1533 to 1580
These pages feature illustrations of the armorial bearings recorded at
the Heralds' Visitations of Cheshire in the years 1533, 1566 and
1580 along with a fragment of the records of the Visitation of the City
of Chester in 1591 as published in 1882 by the Harleian Society. The
book contains few illustrations and those that are included are in
black and white.
The visitations contained a collection of
pedigrees of families with the right to bear arms however this work
concerns itself not with those pedigrees but with the armorial bearings
themselves and I have attempted to turn the written description of the
arms (the blazon) into a coloured illustration for every relevant
entry. There are thirty four pages of images.
