Attributed Arms

The Law of Arms and the regulation of Arms in England underwent changedradically during the Later Middle Ages and particularly in the Tudorperiod. Regulation came under the authority of Royal Officers the Kingsof Arms and the College of Arms. The Kings of Arms enforced strictregulations for the regulation and marshalling of arms. In manyinstances where the actual arms used by distant forbears had beenforgotten Tudor Heralds would extrapolate retrospectively to re-createthe arms they expected individuals in the past to have used, such armsare called 'attributed arms'. Sometimes it is possible to trace oldseals and documents to find out what arms individuals actually used inthe early days of heraldry. What one often finds is that because therules applied to heraldry in the early Middle Ages were applied muchless strictly a Nobleman might adopt arms which did not adhere strictlyto the later established rules; so attributed arms and the actual armsborn by individuals in the early Middle Ages are often somewhatdifferent.
