Picture this if you will. A great jousting tournament with Sir Cobby (name meaning "big leading man) riding high on his battle horse, his surcoat and shield emblazoned in the colours of his families coat of arms. The crest on top of his helmet is a gold crown through which is a silver swans head. His page stands by his tent dressed in his masters heraldic colours. Sir Cobby's wife and his daughter are at his side dressed in the apparel of the arms of her husband. Imagine all the knights and their helpers each easily identified by their families coats of arms, their first name or surname origins describing their characters or maybe just a nickname, all gathering together for this festive occasion. The colour and the pageantry of the jugglers, the troubadours, the ale tents and the games of chance. The event would have been the highlight of the year. Through all the excitement of the event would have been the heralds who held court and recorded all the different coats of arms so as to ensure that each one was unique. It is from these records that draw the coats of arms.
