The College of Arms was incorporated during the reign of Charles III.  From 1530 to 1686, the King of Arms made Visitations to examine claims and either grant or deny the use of Arms.  There are several published Visitations to Cheshire and are available from major university and pubic libraries and the Cheshire record office.

The Harleian Society was founded in 1869 as a Record Society, and has published many volumes of Heraldic Visitations. They can be contacted at:
