Noble Friends, Especially Heralds:

On 18 July 1555 England's College of Arms was re-chartered by Queen Mary 
I and her consort Philip II of Spain. The earliest surviving charter for 
the College of Arms was issued by Richard III in 1484. Whether there 
were earlier charters now lost is not known.

You can learn more about the College of Arms at 

Scotland has its own heraldic office which was chartered in 1532, Court 
of the Lord Lyon: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Court_of_the_Lord_Lyon

Yours Aye,

Mungo Napier, Laird of Mallard Lodge
