The pedigree dates from the fourteenth century, shows the judges, kings and conquerors of Israel, and is illuminated with biblical incidents in roundels.

The scene left is of the nativity of Christ: Christ is shown at the top of the image in the manger, overseen by oxen. Mary and Joseph look away, seeming to regret the inferior accommodation available.

The College of Arms operates a scheme whereby parish, town and community councils can petition for a grant of a coat of Arms at a specially reduced rate. Councils interested in pursuing this scheme to enable them to establish lawful Arms, particularly in view of the forthcoming Jubilee Year, should contact the Officer in Waiting.
