The Heralds Visitations - Holt Pedigrees

The Heralds'visitations are a collection of pedigrees of families that have the right to bear arms. These were mainly recorded between the 16th and the 17th century to regulate the use of arms. The families had their arms recorded which detailed the quartering to which they were entitled. The pedigrees included the main line of descent and some family offshoots so that the route by which the quartered arms had been acquired was documented.
