Visitation of England and Wales Notes : Volume 3, 1898
Visitation of England and Wales Notes : Volume 3, 1898 - Joseph Jackson Howard and Frederick Arthur Crisp. Contains a vast wealth of English and Welsh pedigrees and supporting documentation. The "Visitation" series records genealogical information in the form of pedigrees starting in the mid-18th century; do not confuse these with visitations of earlier centuries which were often erroneous. Pedigrees start with the grandparents of the principal person, and contain notices of all descendants of their name, often covering five generations. A significant amount of genealogical and biographical information is given for each person. The pedigrees are very specific, therefore some surnames may be listed several times in different volumes, each representing a family of a different locale. Each volume contains at least one family from nearly every shire. The "Notes" series contains genealogical data on the older generations of the families discussed in the "Visitations" series, to which they are directly keyed. The bulk of the material in these volumes consists of documents, abstracts and other supporting material.
