You are cordially invited ....

Today was one of those rare but pleasant days where the post (mail) was dominated not by bills but by heraldry:  I received my copy of Tak Tent, the magazine of The Heraldry Society of Scotland (always a welcome read) along with a pleasant note from Alan Fennely, Secretary of the Greater Manchester Heraldry Society, thanking me for agreeing to present my talk on The Heraldry of the 1605 Conspirators. It is always a pleasure to hear from Alan and I shall look forward to meeting once again a number of increasingly familiar faces in Manchester in November.

The Heraldry of the Gunpowder Conspirators


Power point slides of the Gunpowder talk.


 The Talk is to be held on Saturday 6th November at 2 p.m. at The Friends Meeting House on Mount Street Manchester (behind the Central Reference Library) and you are cordially invited to attend.

Tak Tent informs all that The Heraldry Society of Scotland has now published its syllabus for 2010 - 11.

Oh dear, Burke's have upset the Booths!

It has come to my attention that there is considerable disquiet in the households of the various collateral descendants of the Booth baronet...
