An outstanding compilation of English genealogical information drawn from many ancient sources, such as the Munimenta Antiqua, apprentice books, will books, church records, brass rubbings and historical documents from the author's personal collection. Most of the data is from the 1600s and 1700s, but a few families have records going back to the 1500s and earlier. Included are descriptions of family coats of arms (with some illustrations), autographs, deeds, entries in Bibles, grants of arms, lists of rectors, monumental inscriptions, pedigrees, register extracts, seals and wills.
