About
Heraldic Visitation

Heraldic Visitation records are available with the new Diamond Premium subscription on TheGenealogist.co.uk. There are 69 currently available on the website for individual counties and the whole of England and Wales, with years ranging from 1530 - 1921.

Heraldic Visitations began in 1530 and were tours of inspection undertaken by Kings of Arms in order to regulate and register the coats of arms of nobility and gentry, and to record pedigrees. As surviving visitation records include pedigrees and often the evidence that was used to prove these, including family details, background and ages, their records provide important source material for genealogists.
