Profiles

This project is sub-project of the Heraldic Visitations of England and Wales Project. See the main project page for more info: http://www.geni.com/projects/Heraldic-Visitations-of-England-and-Wales

This project catalogues all the families recorded in the following publication:

Rye, W., ed. (1891). The Visitacion of Norffolk, made and taken by William Harvey, Clarencieux King of Arms, Anno 1563, enlarged with another Visitacion made by Clarenceux Cooke, with many other descents; as also the Visitation made by John Raven, Richmond, Anno 1613. Harleian Society, 1st ser. 32. London.

The initial phase of this project will be attach the profile of the earliest ancestor of each listed family and place a link to the Visitation in the About section of each profile. In the second phase, the arms of each family will be added. Descendants researching families in the Visitation are encouraged to join and help add other family members listed in the visitation. Simply send a message to the project manager to join.

Norfolk families chronicled in these Visitations. The links go to the most recent generation chronicled in the Visitation. In other words, the family actually visited by the King of Arms:

Caution

Visitations are an excellent way of identifying medieval and Tudor ancestors. Care should be taken with them however, as they were often based on family memory and contain errors.

As with all sources used in tracing your family history, whenever possible the information gained should be used to direct you to other contemporary sources (such as wills, inquisitions post mortem, etc.), so you can verify what you have found out.
