360 are very neatly executed in colours, apparently in the time of Charles I., and 242 (at fols. 4b, 5b, 8b, 24b, 42b-54b,) are in trick by a later hand.

Many of the coats in trick exhibit marriage quarterings. The last coat is that of Nich. Brune, son and heir of Sir Valentine Brune, of Ross, co. Kerry, and is attested by Rich. Carney, Athlone pursuivant of arms, 16 May 1681.

An index of names is prefixed.
