This folio, heraldry engraving is from Joseph Edmondson’s work after Sir William Segar in Baronagium Genealogicum; or the Pedigrees of the English Peers, deduced from the earliest times. The work was published in London in 1764.
Edmondson was originally employed to paint coats of arms on carriages in London which led him to study Heraldry and genealogy. He eventually began publishing his work and completed Baronagium Genealogicum. The crests were originally compiled by Segar (1554-1633) and were continued to the present by Edmondson. The work attracted the attention of nobility who hired Edmondson to complete their family pedigrees.
