PREFACE.



The various Records, whose contents are indexed in the list now
printed, may be divided into three divisions — Genealogies, Birthbriefs and
Funeral Escutcheons. The first consists of the Official Register of all
Genealogies and Birthbriefs in Scotland, which commences on 3rd Decem-
ber 1727. Volume I. ends on 15th January 1796 and Volume TIL begins
1 6th August 1827 and is continued to date. Volume II. is not now in
existence, if indeed it ever existed at all. It is not mentioned in an
inventory of the Lyon Office Records in 181 9, but several pedigrees,
which were intended to be recorded in it, are still preserved in draft in
what is called the "Arboretum" or "collection of trees." The names of
those as well as others, not now in the Lyon Office though the fees for
recording them are entered in the cash book, have been added to the list.
These volumes are referred to as G. I., 11. and III. The Birthbriefs
and Funeral Escutcheons give the names and in many instances the arms
of the parents, grandparents, great-grandparents and great-great-grand-
parents, of the person in whose favour they were granted or of the
deceased, whose hatchment was, by warrant of the Lord Lyon, painted
and placed over the door of his mansion or burial place. These records,
which are intermixed, are contained in fourteen volumes and are referred
to as follows, the references being the numbers of the manuscript in the
Lyon Office Catalogue : —

8. Large folio containing 43 Birthbriefs and Funeral Escutcheons at

beginning and 4 at end, 1697-1754.

9. Large folio containing 237 Funeral Escutcheons collected by

Roderick Chalmers, Ross Herald (i 724-1 746), and another
commencing 2nd August 1724 and ending 1766 contain the seize
quartiers of the deceased, but no pedigree.

10. Small folio, formerly in four books, containing 326 Birthbriefs and

Funeral Escutcheons.

11. Small folio containing 296 Birthbriefs and Funeral Escutcheons.

12. Small folio containing 82 Funeral Escutcheons, 1720-1732, copied

cates and Forfaultures 1679, with 23 Funeral Escutcheons at

the end.

The information given in these records in the seventeenth and
eighteenth centuries must be accepted with caution by the genealogist.
The ancestral tables in many cases have been written down by the
Herald Painters from persons whose knowledge was incomplete or
inaccurate. The records contain many blanks in the names and dates,
which have been supplied from other sources. This information is given
in square brackets.
