Why Audley Family History?


We ensure that all our data is checked and correct, this is a hobby to the owners of the site and therefore taking our time and getting it right is what we are known for.

Seals - Audley of Gloucester

The Seals on this page cover the period when {ZA24} Hugh de Aldithley (Audley) was Earl of Gloucester. Prior to him becoming Earl of Gloucester he used a seal similar to those shown on the prior to 1391 page.

The original seals (and seal moulds) on this webpage are in  The National Archives Kew.

As Seals usually incorporate a Coat of Arms; this webpage should be read in conjunction with the Coat of Arms section of this website. The advantage with seals is that they are usually attached to a manuscript which can be dated
