HE STUDY OF HERALDRY has been 
regarded by many as dry and unprofitable, 
yet on the least inquiry into its origin and in- 
tent it will be found not only interesting to 
the layman, but in many respects essential to 
historians and antiquaries. The pride of an- 
cestry is innate in nearly every one, and many 
incidents faintly written upon the pages of history would forever 
have remained dark but for the light flashed on them by the 
torch of Heraldry. Americans are very ardent genealogists, and 
in many cases have as full a title to armorial bearings as their 
foreign cousins, so that it is only natural that they should share 
with the world in general some curiosity as to the right to bear 
arms. 

The arms-bearing families in the United States are principally 
those who trace their origin to the Knickerbocker families of 
New i ork, the Cavaliers of the South, the Puritans of New 
England, tLj Quakers of Pennsylvania and Huguenot exiles of 
noble blood. It must be remembered that the early settlers, 
although often styled merchants and yeomen, were mostly men 
of good family, their seals and much of the plate brought with 
them from the Old World being engraved with their Arms. The 
War of the Revolution destroyed Britain's domination over the 
Colonies, but it did not, and could* not, abrogate the right of 
^ Americans to Coat Armor. If such eminent patriots as the 
Lees, Carrolls, Adamses, Franklins, Jays and Livingstones did 
not hesitate to use their armorial bearings, their descendants of the 



COAT ARMOR IN AMERICA 

present day, entitled to the same distinction, need not fear to fol- 
low. Most conclusive, however, of all proofs of the American 
right to use Coat Armor is the ruling of Washington himself, 
who said : 

" It is far from my design to intimate any opinion that Her- 
" aldry, Coat Armor, etc., might not be rendered conducive 
" to public and private use with us, or that they can have 
" any tendency unfriendly to the purest spirit of republican- 
" ism. On the contrary, a different conclusion is deducible 
" from the practice of Congress and the states, all of which 
" have established some kind of Armorial devices to authen- 
*' ticate their official instruments." 

The science of heraldry or armory is indeed of very ancient 
origin. When the College of Heralds was established in Eng- 
land, in 1483, its business was to register Grants of Arms and to 
see that such distinctions were not borne illegally; in other 
words, to bring order out of chaos that must have existed for a 
long time. As many abuses found their way into all matters 
touching descent and Arms, the Heralds' Visitations were later 
instituted, in the early sixteenth century, for the purpose of revis- 
ing and recording the pedigrees of families entitled to Coat 
Armor; and the business of distinguishing between proper and 
improper assumptions of Coat Armor is still an important one. 

All persons who can deduce descent from an ancestor whose 
armorial ensigns have been acknowledged in any one of the Vis- 
itations, are entitled to carry those Arms by right of inheritance. 
When, however, no such descent can be shown, a person must, 
if it is possible, prove himself to be descended from some one 
whose right has been admitted ; from a Grantee, or in fault of 
that proof must become a Grantee himself 

During the Revolutionary and Civil Wars in this country, 
many public and private records bearing seals and impressions of 

vi 



COAT ARMOR IN AMERICA 

Arms were destroyed. Seals are of all records those on which 
the greatest reliance can be placed ; for being contemporary wit- 
nesses no doubt can exist of their historical value. These rec- 
ords were frequently the only proof extant that certain families 
were entitled by inheritance to Coat Armor, and as the descend- 
ants of many of these families have continued to use a Coat of 
Arms, the following authority for their so doing is of importance. 
In the Lansdown MS. 870 (Fo. 88) William Dugdale, Garter 
King of Arms, under date of 15 June, 1G68, writes as follows: 

*' It is incumbent that a man doe look over his own evi- 
" dences for some seals of armes, for perhaps it appeares in 
•' them, and if soe and they have used it from the beginning 
" of Queen Elizabeth's reigne, or about that time, I shall 
" then allowe thereof, for our directions are limiting us soe 
" to doe, and not a shorter prescription of usage." 

Here we have the highest heraldic authority in the kingdom, 
Garter King of Arms, expressly stating that a man is justified in 
using a Coat of Arms, providing that it has been in use by his 
family for one hundred years, or about that time. We must also 
bear in mind that this opinion was given at a time when the 
Heralds' Visitations were still in force. At the present day, 
Dugdale's ruling is followed by Ulster King of Arms, who will 
confirm by Patent any Arms which have been continuously borne 
for at least three generations, or else for at least one hundred 
years. These rulings do away with the quibble raised by a well 
known historical society that the usage of Coats of Arms in any 
manner, shape or form should be discountenanced, for the reason, 
as alleged, that so few families trace their ancestry to the parent 
stock across the water. 

In this second edition of the present work data relative to 
eight hundred additional families have been included, so that the 
Registry now offers descriptions of nearly two thousand coats of 

vii 



COAT ARMOR IN AMERICA 

arms, with the name of the first of the family in America, the 
date of his arrival and place of settlement, and, in the majority 
of instances, the town or country whence he came. 

The plan of the work resembles in the main that of Burke's 
General Armory in England, except that the latter includes only 
the arms of persons of British ancestry, whereas the American 
book goes farther, including the arms of those whose ancestors 
came from Continental Europe. The descriptions of the arms, 
and the data, carefully collated and verified, have been inserted 
only when actual examination of the necessary records has shown 
the family to be entitled to the distinction. 

The scope of the Registry, not being limited to any pre- 
scribed locality, but embracing the known arm-bearing families 
of all the States in the Union, makes it the most comprehensive 
book of the kind published. Its very unusual interest to Ameri- 
cans desiring for any reason to have records of their descent is 
self-evident.

The Genealogical Association undertakes record searching, 
by professional genealogists, in any part of the United States 
or Great Britain. Accuracy is assured by the employment of 
resident genealogists in the New England States, Virginia, 
Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York. By the 
same means thoroughly accurate and authenticated application 
papers may be prepared for admission to the Sons of the Ameri- 
can Revolution, the Daughters of the American Revolution, the 
Daughters of the Revolution, the Order of the Cincinnati, the 
Colonial Dames, or any of the other Patriotic Societies. 

The Association undertakes also to portray Coats-of-Arms 
properly in colors, a task requiring an intimate knowledge of 
Heraldry. Any Coat-of-Arms described in this volume may be 
supplied at a price ranging from Fifteen Dollars upwards, accord- 
ing to the size of the painting. A Pedigree Chart engrossed by 
hand on parchment vellum, an acquisition to any library, may 
be supplied at a price of from Fifty to One Hundred Dollars, ac- 
cording to its size and the number of names inserted. The de- 
signing of Heraldic Book-Plates is another specialty of the 
Association. 

(Genealogical ^rintins 

The Association not only compiles family histories, but prints 
them as well. Many persons have gathered data concerning 
their ancestry which is practically inaccessible to many of their 
family connections as long as it remains in manuscript. Yet it 
is an easy matter, with proper aid, to print a small edition of 
these records. An expert genealogical proofreader, a positive 
necessity in work of this sort, can be supplied from the ex- 
perienced corps which the Association has at call. Manuscripts 
may be sent and estimates on the cost of printing a limited 
edition secured.
