The Grammar of Heraldry/Appendix
The blazon of the following coats of arms is subjoined, so that the student who has made himself acquainted with the principles of the science of Heraldry may learn in what manner armorial bearings are rightly described.
As an indiscriminate selection from the thousands which are enrolled in the Heralds’ College might be considered invidious, I give the blazon of those families only which are mentioned by Mr. Shirley as constituting the landed gentry in England before the sixteenth century. Those families which have become noble since that period are distinguished by an asterisk.
