The Armorial Bearings Exemplified in The
illustrated in colour by Martin S. J.
| The Visitations of Cheshire 1613
These pages feature illustrations of the armorial bearings recorded at
the Heralds' Visitations of Cheshire in the year 1613 published
in 1909 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 twenty seven pages of images in this section
of the site.
