First published in 1902 and republished here is the 62nd edition of Dod's Peerage, Baronetage & Knightage of Great Britain and Ireland. Published in London by Sampson Low, Marston & Company, this edition of Dod's Peerage & Baronetage contains nearly 1,100 printed pages and details 'All the Titled Classes' in Britain and Ireland for the year in which it was published and as such is an invaluable biographical companion.

Charles Roger Phipps Dod, the originator of Dod's Peerage & Baronetage was born at Drumlease, Co. Leitrim, in 1793, the son of Roger Dod the vicar of Drumlease by his second marriage to Margaret Phipps. Educated at Trinity College, Dublin, Dod entered King's Inns in Dublin in 1816 with the intention of embarking on a legal career. However, after becoming the part-owner of a provincial newspaper, Dod gave up his legal career, and moved to London in 1818. For the next twenty-three years he was associated with the Times. Under Dod's direction the Times' reporting of parliamentary debates became more accurate and impartial was in large part to Dod's management of the reporters in his charge. Dod succeeded Horace Twiss at the Times as compiler of the summary Parliamentary debates while at the same time contributing to the paper's obituary memoires. It was these experiences that led Dod to issue his first long-lasting reference work, Dod's Parliamentary Companion. First issued in 1832 it recorded the first Parliament to sit after the passing of the Great Reform Act of 1832 and has been published annually ever since and is currently in its 178th edition. Respected as the most accurate, informative and impartial source for information on the Houses of Parliament and the Civil Service and remains the most trusted resource in the political arena.

Dod's Peerage, Baronetage and Knightage was first published in 1841 has been revised and published annually since its first issue and is now incorporated into Dod's Parliamentary Companion. This 62nd edition, published in 1902, carried the full tile Dod's Peerage, Baronetage & Knightage of Great Britain & Ireland for 1902, including all the Titled Classes. The first part of the publication provides a general dictionary on ten classes of Peers, etc., and in each instance details are provided on their 'titles, parentage, descent, ages, birthplaces, marriages, education, professions, residences, public services, offices' together with other relevant historical, personal and professional details.

Dod's Peerage, Baronetage & Knightage of Great Britain & Ireland is a complete reference dictionary for the titled classes as well as many others bearing honours for the year in which it was published and as such must prove to be an invaluable edition to any collection.

Phillimore's Pedigree Work: A Handbook for the Genealogist, 1914 FREE DOWNLOAD Phillimore's Pedigree Work: A Handbook for the Genealogist, 1914 FREE DOWNLOAD

Ref: IE5010
ISBN: 1-84630-154-8

This booklet was written by the famous English genealogist, W.P.W Phillimore, as an introduction to the beginner embarking on their family history. It is full of very sensible advice and cautionary tales. He warns against the errors that exist in the pedigrees that had already been compiled, and makes the important point that this is rarely because of fabrication, but because of "inability to appreciate the rules of evidence". In other words those who are not trained in the work are inevitably going to make mistakes, and his aim in this little book is to help students identify and understand the nature of the evidence they use. "Verify your references" is a repeated maxim, as true then as it is today.

But the booklet has so much more, from how to layout and print your pedigree, to the principal sources and the problems attached to each. He looks in detail at English sources, while also addressing Scottish and Irish. Those familiar with Irish genealogy will be struck by his description of sources and options no longer available, his comment "Ireland is fortunate in preserving more of her census returns than England" reminds us how much has changed since 1914.

All in all, this is a great introduction to family history as well as the historical methods of the genealogist.

Joseph Gough Nichols, The Topographer and Genealogist (3 Vols) 1846-1858 Joseph Gough Nichols, The Topographer and Genealogist (3 Vols) 1846-1858

Ref: IE5048
ISBN: 1-84630-221-8

Originally published between 1846 and 1858 and republished here on fully-searchable CD-Rom is the three-volume collection The Topographer and Genealogist. Edited by John Gough Nichols and printed in London by the editor's father, John Bowyer Nichols, in total this monumental collection of historical and genealogical material contains more than 1,800 printed pages.

John Gough Nichols was the third generation of renowned London printers, publishers and antiquaries. His grandfather, John Nichols (1745-1826), began life as a printer, but by 1788 was the editor of the Gentleman's Magazine and published in eight volumes (1795-1815) The History and Antiquities of the County of Leicester, the most comprehensive antiquarian survey until that time ever undertaken. Together with Abraham Farley, Nichols proofed and printed the 1783 edition of the Doomsday Book as well as other antiquarian publications. John Gough Nichols' father, John Bowyer Nichols continued the family printing business, while his eldest son, John Gough Nichols is seen as his grandfather's natural successor.

John Gough Nichols joined the family printing firm in 1824 and, though his prodigious editorial achievements and biographical studies, may be regarded as the natural successor of his grandfather, John Nichols. He began to attend meetings of the Society of Antiquaries with his father from the age of twelve and, in 1826, assisted John Nichols with his Progresses of James I, completing it alone in 1828. His indefatigable editorship of the Gentleman's Magazine lasted from 1826 to its sale in 1856 but, through his zeal to print original sources and biographical materials, he was also the founding editor of the Collectanea Topographica et Genealogica (1834-1843), the Topographer and Genealogist (1846-1858), the Herald and Genealogist (1863-1874) and the Register and Magazine of Biography (1869) and was also one of the founding members of the Camden Society. o these milestones of biography and local historical publication must be added his Annals and Antiquities of Lacock Abbey in 1834, his contributions to Sir Richard Hoare's History of Modern Wiltshire and his contributions to Archæologia and the publications of the Camden Society, Surtees Society and Shakespeare Society, all of which he had helped to found. When he died, in 1873, his library at Holmwood Park near Dorking in Surrey housed one of the largest collections of topographical and historical books of his time. It was also the home of many thousands of family, business and collected papers that he and his family had been accumulating for over a century. In the course of the next fifty years a succession of sales by Sotheby's began the dispersal of the Nichols archive to its many present locations in public repositories and private collections around the world.

As for the three-volume publication, The Topographer and Genealogist, this contains a plethora of material gathered from numerous sources, such as monumental inscription, estates records, parochial records, leases, family chronicles and wills, as well as work undertaken by much earlier genealogists such as the herald, Peter Le Neve as well as records from various shires and hundreds of England and Ireland. It was Nichols' express wish that The Topographer and Genealogist should be a forum for the publication of detached essays on topography and genealogy bringing to the public attention hitherto lost relics while at the same time preserving these for posterity and in this Nichols was surely successful.

Rolls of Arms - Henry III Rolls of Arms - Henry III

Ref: GBI8098
ISBN:

Includes the Matthew Paris Shields c. 1244-59, Glover's Roll c. 1253-8 and Walford's Roll c. 1273.

From the preface:

'The Matthew Paris Shields are the work of a clerk, a keen, and accurate observer, but one who looked at heraldry from the outside. Glover's and Walford's Rolls, on the other hand, look like the work of heralds, or just possibly of knights, at all events of men personally and professionally involved in the subject.'

In the book ancient families arms are described and discussed and there are often biographical and genealogical notes to accompany them, for example:

From Walford's Roll:

BREUSE. John de Brusse d' or a treys chevrons de gules a une bordure d' azur endente. Cf 141, 111. CII (a) writes 'bod' for bordure. CII (b) makes the border argent, but C I, as also E 337 an F 406, both of which paint it engrailed, confirm azure.

Sir John de Breuse, s. and h. of Robert (d.1276), held lands in Hants., Glos., Surrey, Som., and Essex. (Cal. Inq. ii. 194.) He was dead by Whitsun 1284, when his heirs, minors, were found to be overlords of Spargrove manor, Som. (Ibid. 526)

The arms are evidently a differenced version of Clare, but how they were acquired does not appear.'

Number of Pages: 440

First published in London in 1860 is the first edition of Sir John Bernard Burke's Vicissitudes of Families. Containing some 440 printed pages, this publication charts the rise and often fall of some of the most noted families of Europe and especially Ireland and the vicissitudes that caused these changes in circumstance.

Sir John Bernard Burke (1814-1892) was born in London, the son of John Burke (1787-1848) and educated in France. Like his father, Sir John was first and foremost a genealogist. In 1826 John Burke issued the first edition of a Genealogical and Heraldic Dictionary of the Peerage and Baronetage of the United Kingdom. From 1847 to the present day this has been published annually and is generally known as Burke's Peerage. After his father's death Sir John took control of his father's publications and issued for the first time The Royal Families of England, Scotland, and Wales, with their Descendants. In 1853Burke moved he was appointed Ulster King at Arms and was knighted the following year. After his appointment as Keeper of the State Papers of Ireland, Burke moved to Dublin and eventually died there in 1892.

In addition to his editorial work on Burke's Peerage, Sir John also issued a number of companion volumes of this flagship publication, including the Landed Gentry of England and later for Ireland, while also continuing his father's Dictionary of the Peerages of England, Scotland and Ireland, extinct, dormant and in abeyance. Integral to Burke's study of armorists was his 1878 publication Encyclopaedia of Heraldry, or General Armoury of England, Scotland and Ireland. In addition to these works, Burke is credited with a number of publications in his own right, rather than as general editor. These included The Roll of Battle Abbey (1848); The Romance of the Aristocracy (1855); The Romance of the Forum (185-); The Rise of Great Families (1882) and the Vicissitudes of Families (1860). At the time of his death Burke was succeeded as editor of Burke's Peerage by his fourth son, Ashworth Peter Burke and another son, Sir Henry Farnham Burke, would eventually rise to the position of Garter Principal King of Arms.

Vicissitudes of Families details the vagaries of personality, events and history that led to the rise, but in most instances the fall of a number of celebrated families, some titled, some ennobled and some mere commoners. In his preface, Burke remarks that the vicissitudes experienced by what could be called the 'old aristocracy' could hardly, if ever, be separated from the national history of the country. In other cases the vicissitudes of families was often created by instability of mind or by the inheritance of an illegitimate issue or more commonly by lack of issue altogether. Burke illustrates these causes of vicissitude by choosing nineteen cases where families experienced huge changes in fortune. Numbered amongst these are the French Bonapartes, the bodice maker of Bristol and and the Lairds of Westquarter. However, it was to Ireland that much of Burke's attention was drawn with chapters on the exiled O'Donnells, the Clan MacCarthy, the Desmonds and the Kings of Meath, the O'Melaghlins.

Sometimes sad, always entertaining and not a little surprising in places, the Vicissitudes of Families makes for highly entertaining reading.

Ref: IE0101
ISBN: 1-84630-292-7

Republished here on fully-searchable CD-Rom is the 1863 4th edition of Burke's Land Gentry of Great Britain and Ireland. Carrying the full-title A Genealogical & Heraldic Dictionary of the Land Gentry of Great Britain & Ireland by Sir John Bernard Burke. Published in two parts, the Landed Gentry of Great Britain and Ireland contains more than 1,700 printed pages

Sir John Bernard Burke (1814-1892) was born in London, the son of John Burke (1787-1848) and educated in France. Like his father, Sir John was first and foremost a genealogist. In 1826 John Burke issued the first edition of a Genealogical and Heraldic Dictionary of the Peerage and Baronetage of the United Kingdom. From 1847 to the present day this has been published regularly and is generally known as Burke's Peerage. After his father's death Sir John took control of his father's publications and issued for the first time The Royal Families of England, Scotland, and Wales, with their Descendants. In 1853 Burke was appointed Ulster King at Arms and was knighted the following year. After his appointment as Keeper of the State Papers of Ireland, Burke moved to Dublin and eventually died there in 1892.

In addition to his editorial work on Burke's Peerage, Sir John also issued a number of companion volumes of this flagship publication, which included the Landed Gentry of Great Britain and Ireland, while also continuing his father's Dictionary of the Peerages of England, Scotland and Ireland, extinct, dormant and in abeyance. Integral to Burke's study of armorial bearings was his 1878 publication Encyclopaedia of Heraldry, or General Armoury of England, Scotland and Ireland. In addition to these works, Burke is credited with a number of publications in his own right, rather than as general editor. These included The Roll of Battle Abbey (1848); The Romance of the Aristocracy (1855); The Romance of the Forum (185-); The Rise of Great Families (1882) and the Vicissitudes of Families (1860). At the time of his death Burke was succeeded as editor of Burke's Peerage by his fourth son, Ashworth Peter Burke and another son, Sir Henry Farnham Burke, would eventually rise to the position of Garter Principal King of Arms.

First published by John Burke in 1826 under the title A Genealogical and Heraldic History of the Commoners of Great Britain and Ireland, enjoying territorial possessions or high official rank, or Burke's Commoners for short. By the time of the publication of the second edition the less than flattering title of 'commoner' was replaced by the phrase 'landed gentry'. Included in the Landed Gentry of Great Britain and Ireland were all families of consequence that were not entitled to be included in Burke's Peerage, Baronetage and Knightage, although some of the families did appear in both publications and as such these were, initially at least, the landowning upper-class who came to identify and adopt the phrase 'Landed Gentry' first coined by Burke. Subsequent editions of the Land Gentry came to include aspiring wealthy families from the middle classes, such as merchants and those from the professions.

Providing sometimes-detailed genealogies on collateral lines, junior branches of families and in-laws, Land Gentry provides details on male lineage, seats, arms, crests and mottoes for thousands of families and as such remains an indispensable genealogical and historical source and remains one of Burke's flagship publications to this day.

County Visitations of the Heralds County Visitations of the Heralds

Ref: harl1
ISBN:
in the 1500s and 1600s

During the 1500s and 1600s, the Heralds visited each county and recorded the pedigrees of families. In many cases the pedigrees date back to Norman times (the 11th century).

These records form an extremely important source of information for family historians. During the late 1800s and early 1900s, the Harleian Society published a large series of books containing transcripts of these ancient documents. The books also include descriptions or illustrations of the coats of arms of these people.

We are very pleased indeed to have set up a project of co-operation with the Harleian Society to digitise this very important collection of books, which are now extremely rare and almost impossible to obtain.

COUNTY VISITATIONS OF THE HERALDS IN THE 1500S AND 1600s

During the 1500s and 1600s, the Heralds visited each county and recorded the pedigrees of families. In many cases the pedigrees date back to Norman times (the 11th century).

These records form an extremely important source of information for family historians. During the late 1800s and early 1900s, the Harleian Society published a large series of books containing transcripts of these ancient documents. The books also include descriptions or illustrations of the coats of arms of these people.

We are very pleased indeed to have set up a project of co-operation with the Harleian Society to digitise this very important collection of books, which are now extremely rare and almost impossible to obtain.

This set contains the equivalent of 58 (yes, fifty eight!) currently produced CDs (some of which contain more than one volume). They are all from the same series, and on the same topic, forming a full and comprehensive library of resources. - 1500s and 1600s period pedigrees. The individual titles would normnally cost more than €700 (£750) ex VAT, so this is a remarkable saving of more than €500. Full list of titles included
