Visitation of England and Wales Notes: Volume 14, 1921


Visitation of England and Wales Notes : Volume 14, 1921 - Joseph Jackson Howard and Frederick Arthur Crisp. The twenty-one volumes of “Visitations” (1894–1921) together with the fourteen volumes of “Notes” (1896–1921) contain a vast wealth of English and Welsh pedigrees and supporting documentation. The “Visitations” series records the genealogical information contained in the Herald’s Visitations of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The pedigrees start with the grandparents of the principle person, and contain notices of all descendants of their name, covering five generations in most cases. A significant amount of genealogical and biographical information is given for each person. These volumes consist mainly of pedigrees, but there are also some wills, land records, extracts from parish registers, copies of monumental brasses, etc. In addition, the volumes contain illustrations of arms on record at the College of Arms, reproductions of autographs, seals, book-plates, portraits, etc. 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 “Notes” series contains some pedigrees, but the bulk of the material in these volumes consists of documents, abstracts and other supporting material.Volume 14 consists solely of pedigrees, some with illustrations of family crests. Pedigrees include: Acton of Gatacre Park; Blake; Challinor; Chevallier; Cobbold; Corder; Cripps of Cirencester; Cross; Denne; Evans; Farnham of Quorndon; Fry; Fynes, alias Clinton; Good; Holmes; Landon; Lombe; Mortimer; Nelson; Pytches; Rouse; Rouse of Kilkhampton; Scott of Great Barr; Suckling; Surtees; Tarleton; Wolseley; Woollcombe; Worthington.
