General Armory of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales

This database is a compilation of about 60,000 coats of arms. It “comprises the Armorial Bearings of the Noblemen and Gentlemen of the British Empire, and the various Coats that are to be seen in churches and family mansions, together with those traceable on Seals, Deeds, Wills, and Monumental remains.” This includes the Royal Armory and the armory of the British Order of Knighthood. The armory is depicted through Illustrations and accompanying explanations. The database also contains a glossary, a dictionary of terms used in heraldry, an alphabetical list of mottoes, and a list of abbreviations (which is presented below). for more click here
