Heraldry in Jamaica, 1722 to the present 29 November 2016, London

Today only a few corporate coats of arms are still known and used in Jamaica, but during the 18th and 19th centuries, and even after independence, scores of Jamaican individuals or bodies were granted armorial bearings. Many depicted Jamaican flora or fauna or represented the lives of their recipients. This illustrated lecture by historian Dr Duncan Sutherland will explore some of these fascinating and rarely-seen coats of arms.

Pre-booking by 21 November is essential.  Please see booking form below.
