is the science and art of designing, displaying, describing
and recording coats-of-arms (also referred to as "armorial
bearings" or simply as "arms"). Its origins lie in the
need to distinguish participants in battles or jousts,
whose faces were hidden by steel helmets.
the late Middle Ages and Renaissance, heraldry became
a highly developed discipline, regulated by professional
heralds. As its use in jousts became obsolete, arms
remained popular for visually identifying a person
in other ways — impressed in sealing wax on
official documents, carved on a family tomb, and so
the existence of heraldry, coats of arms have been
executed in a wide variety of media, including painted
wood, embroidery, enamel, stonework and stained glass.

license to strict quality standards. Our heraldry

look forward to introducing an ever-increasing product
range as a means of perpetuating this ancient art by
bringing it to the attention of both the young and old.
While for a personal coat of arms it is still necessary
to apply to the College of Heralds in London, we offer
arms fully researched as being the oldest recorded for
the “senior” branch of your family name.
