Is there a rumour that a branch of your family had a Coat of Arms and would you like help in confirming it? Perhaps you have some silver with Arms or a Crest, or there is a grave stone, monument or stained glass window with Arms in a church where your family once lived. If so, please e-mail Sandra Barkwith by Friday 7th February 2020 with, for example, any photographs, sketches or brass rubbings, together with details about the earliest ancestor in that particular branch of your family tree.
Christopher Singleton will be discussing Heraldry, illustrating his talk with research on the information provided by 2 or 3 of the Branch’s members. He will provide the tools for members’ own research into heraldry, touching on sources for records prior to the formal introduction of Parish Registers in 1538.
