Does anyone know the significance of the blue rectangle of paper on the top left of the pages?  When scrolling through the pages (via Ancestry)  I note some have, some don't. 
Just curious,

Hi Sandie

You may have to contact The Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies (IHGS) as they are the original source for this.

Looking at the images, the blue squares may cover an illumimated letter to protect it.
