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

The Visitations of Cheshire 1663

These pages feature illustrations of the armorial bearings recorded at the  Heralds' Visitations of Cheshire in the year 1663 published in 1841 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. This section of the Cheshire Heraldry web site is still under construction.
