Colin Campbell, The Double Tressure, 1988, provides the most
detailed description in print of the contents of this roll.
This armorial was
discovered by Dr D L Galbreath in the Royal Library in the Hague
in 1949. Inside the cover is written Armoiries des maisons
illustres d' Escosse so presumably it was at some stage in France.
By 1795 it was in the Hague. Dating is made difficult by certain
of the leaves in the peers section being missing, but the roll
reflects no change in the Scottish peerage made after 4th November
1590. It may well be that it was compiled in connection.
