"This Armory originated from a desire to illuminate the family tree of a New Zealander with the Coats of Arms of her many Cornish ancestors. In the research for this previously unpublished 16th and 17th century manuscripts of armorial bearings were discovered. Although not relating exclusively to Cornwall, they included a large number of references of Cornish families. The number of arms so found together with a review of many early printed and other sources has resulted in this book of almost 2,500 family arms."
