Our Chairman, Peter O'Donoghue, York Herald, welcomed members and guests to a guided tour of the College of Arms. Since its foundation in 1484 the College of Arms has created and maintained official registers of coats of arms and pedigrees. At the core of the College of Arms is a vast manuscript archive of heraldic and genealogical material which has been gathered and preserved over the centuries. We were able to look through some of these volumes and marvel at their antiquity and artwork.
