The Armorial Bearings  Exemplified in  The Cheshire Visitations
illustrated in colour by Martin S. J. Goldstraw

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.

Cheshire Heraldry is pleased to announce the publication of 
The second book in the illustrated companions series.

Pages 144; Binding Hardcover (casewrap); Interior Ink Full colour; Weight 0.64 kg; Dimensions (centimetres) 20.96 wide x 27.31 tall; Product ID23664938.
