Lineage within the manuscript runs from William the Conqueror to James VI and I and his children, of whom only Henry Prince of Wales, Charles Duke of York, Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret are listed. Further details of their lives have been added in a 19th century hand, together with Robert Duke of Kintyre and Princess Mary.


Written in ink; lines in different colours down the inner margin denoting lineage.


Arms of each monarch illustrated in colour and illuminated throughout.

Tipped into the front endleaves is a sheet with an engraved armorial device, and a description of the arms of the Perrott family in an 18th century hand.
