The Armorial Bearings Exemplified in The
illustrated in colour by Martin S. J.
| 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
