In the previous post to this I reported the completion of the image for Cholmondeley of Cholmondeley in the visitations of 1663 and by happy coincidence almost at the same time I received permission from David Truzzi-Franconi to use the image of a Cholmondeley hatchment he completed some time ago. I was going to post the image David provided but then I realised that I actually had a photograph of the hatchment is situ at Cholmondeley Castle so decided to use that one instead.
The hatchment illustrates the arms of Hugh Cholmondeley, 6th Marquess of Cholmondeley and his wife, Lavinia Margaret Leslie. The dexter portion, with the arms of Cholmondeley, is shown with a black background to indicate that the 6th Marquess is deceased.
David, who is well known to the English Officers of Arms, is an experienced and accomplished artist.
