More Description

This definitive work lists over 5,500 arms recorded in the official heraldic Public Register of Scotland. This is the authentic Register of Arms for Scotland since, according to Scottish law, no persons of Scottish descent whose arms are not registered in the Public Register have a right to armorial bearings unless they can prove that they represent families whose arms are known to have been in existence previous to 1672. The Ordinary contains coats of arms systematically grouped under their component parts to enable the searcher to ascertain to whom an unnamed coat of arms belongs. At the same time, the arms of particular families can be found by consulting the extensive index. The information given in each entry includes a description of the arms, the name of the holder, and the date of registration.
