Changes to The Armorial Register

Post by J Duncan of Sketraw » Tue Sep 27, 2011 1:50 pm

Over the next few days browsers of the website of The Armorial Register will notice that a number of changes have taken place, the most important of which is the return of the branding to the now established name of The Armorial Register – International Register of Arms.

For a number of years The Armorial Register Limited has enjoyed a special relationship with the owners and directors of Burkes Peerage & Gentry (UK) Ltd and has been pleased to licence the name of Burke’s Peerage & Gentry for use with its International Register of Arms. Over the last few months Burkes Peerage & Gentry (UK) Ltd has been subjected to negotiations towards a private business sale and this is, as far as the directors of The Armorial Register Limited are aware, progressing towards a successful completion. The sale of Burkes Peerage & Gentry (UK) Ltd will mean a complete change in ownership and therefore management of the Burke’s company.

With this in mind, the directors of The Armorial Register Limited and the outgoing board of Burkes Peerage & Gentry (UK) Ltd have decided that it is now an appropriate time to end our agreement. The Armorial Register Limited will continue to publish its International Register of Arms (entries are now being received for Volume 2) along with its latest project “A Celebration of Scottish Heraldry” (see the web site for the contributors to this project). A future planned publication is a similar volume to celebrate English Heraldry.

We wish the outgoing team at Burke’s all the very best for the future.
