Description

Although similar to Crozier’s General Armory in plan, this work focuses exclusively on Virginia. It contains full descriptions of the coats of arms of about 275 early Virginia families, including descriptions of crests and mottoes. Each family entry contains extensive genealogical notes; names of the first of the family in Virginia; and, wherever ascertained, his date and place of birth, occupation, marriage, heirs, and date and place of death. Among some of the well-known Virginia families covered are: Batt, Beverly, Bolling, Bowie, Bristow, Brodnax, Byrd, Carter, Chichester, Churchill, Custis, Dandridge, Fairfax, Fitzhugh, Flournoy, Fontaine, Gooch, Henderson, Jenings, Lee, Lightfoot, Lister, Mallory, Mercer, Montague, Moseley, Randolph, Rolfe, Spottswood, Stith, Waller, Warner, Washington, West, Whitehead, and Wise. An essential heraldic and genealogical guide to the early families of Virginia!
“All his . . . publications . . . Evidence most painstaking research and scholarly precision.”–The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, Vol. XXIII, No. 2.
