Leicestershire Lookup Requests / Re: Surname ELD, Leicestershire
« on: Saturday 20 November 21 12:53 GMT (UK)  »
From the available records on FindMyPast for Leicestershire, I cannot see any instance of a baptism, marriage or burial for Matthew Eld.

FreeBMD is showing Eld births from as early as 1838.

Have been thinking ;)

Another reason for tiercing is to show links to a religious body.
The central tierce would then show the arms of the division of the church (as in See).

Examples are: Brasenose College, Lincoln College (Oxford), Corpus Christi College (Oxford).

The Common Room / Re: Children baptised twice in C of E due to private baptism?

When I attended a christening a few years ago, the rector explained that a "normal" christening consists of 2 parts: Christening and Baptism.

Sometimes these are done as 2 separate ceremonies.

Baptism is an initiation into the church.
Christening is the naming ceremony.


Also, after a private baptism there is usually the "received into church" ceremony in church.

The practice of impaling 3 sets of arms is called tiercing (apologies if I am repeating something you already know!).

The usual practice is to show the first wife's arms on the dexter side (left) and the second wife's arms on the sinister (right) side.
The man's arms will be in the middle.

Closest match I can find for the roundels is:
