Coats of arms, some painted and some drawn in ink, for the monarchs and nobles of England from Edward the Confessor to Elizabeth I, accompanied by names, titles, descriptions of the coats of arms, and sometimes short biographies. Sections for each monarch include the principal nobility who held titles or were given titles during the reign of that monarch. A contemporary index divides the names of the individuals included according to their first letter but then lists the names beginning with each letter in order of appearance (f. 88-90). Two smaller pages of notes perhaps associated with the compilation of this manuscript, one concerning the heirs of Richard Woodvile, Earl of Rivers, including the Lords of Stanley, and the other on financial holdings and properties of various families, are tipped in (f. 92v, f. 93v).
