Profiles

The Visitation of Norfolk in 1563 Taken By Wiliam Harvey, Clarenceux King of Arms by The Rev. G. H. Dashwood, FSA, reprinted in 1878.

The scope of this project is to link Geni profiles to the short genealogies included in the book referenced above. It was the custom to hold a "visitation" once a generation, about every thirty to forty years. At the visitation, all gentry and nobles were required to appear and to bring their current arms or crests used so the arms could be registered. Family lineage was documented back four generations. This book contains the lineage and descriptions of arms for those families who were registered at the 1563 visitation. A few wills are also included in the book.

Anyone working with the families listed below will want to be a part of this project. If you are interested in this project, please download a copy of the book (link below) and check that your profiles are in the book. There is an index at the back. Please remember that this is Norfolk, England in 1563. Please also remember that the names in the book are spelled as they were in 1563. Also check the Addenda at the end of the book.

To join the project: If the profiles you are working on are found in the book, contact one of the managers for addition to the project. Once all the profiles have been linked or created, once all the merges are completed, the project will be disbanded.
