A magnificent book of considerable historical importance. So many men
of great eminence in the annals of England have belonged to the Fortescuc

24162 Cornwall, VISITATIONS OF THE COUNTY OF CORNWALL, edited, with
additions, by Lieutenant-Colonel J. L. VIVIAN, 15 parts 4to.,
subscription price, £3. 15s
Privately printed, 1880-84
The Subscription List is now closed; not a copy remains for sale with the
author, who has transferred the few unsold copies to me.
From next year the price of copies, if any remain, will be raised to £5. 5s.
The Heralds' Visitations to Cornwall in the years 1530, 1573, and 1620
are partially contained in the Manuscript Collection generally known as the
"Harleian MSS.," and have never yet been published. They are now offered
to Subscribers in a comprehensive form, the descent of each family being
brought down, where possible, to the present day, from_authorities such as
Wills, Inquisitions post mortem, Parish Registers, Deeds, Family Records, etc.,
every effort being made to secure accuracy, and to produce a standard work
of authority on Cornish Genealogy. Numerous pedigrees of families, not
contained in the Herald's MSS., will be introduced, showing family descent
and connection, and in cases where a family migrated into Cornwall from
another county the Visitation pedigree of the family in that county is added.
The work, in two volumes demy quarto with index, is now in course of issue
in Parts, and will be completed as quickly as possible, the number of copies
being strictly limited to 500.
The Editor trusts that, in his endeavours to produce a correct collection of
Cornish pedigrees, he will receive that support from his fellow Cornishmen to
which be believes he is entitled.
For the list of Names of Families, see separate Prospectus.
