Biographical / Historical

The office of Ulster King of Arms, the heraldic authority for the Kingdom of Ireland, was created in 1552. The holder of the office, which was not part of the College of Arms, was responsible for granting arms to individuals and corporate bodies who had substantial historical, cultural, educational, financial or ancestral connections with Ireland. As a result of the Irish diaspora, there was a long tradition of Irish individuals and families who were living abroad seeking grants of arms from Ireland. For many years, arms and attested pedigrees were necessary as proofs of gentility for anyone seeking commissions in European armies. Some sought new grants of arms, while others requested confirmation of the arms that had been used by their families in earlier times.

The Office of Arms, which was located in Dublin Castle, was not abolished when Ireland became a self-governing dominion in 1922. However, following the death of Sir Nevile Wilkinson in 1940, the position of Ulster King of Arms was left vacant. In 1943 the British and Irish governments agreed that the Office of Arms and its records should be retained in Ireland, while the post of Ulster King of Arms would be transferred to the College of Arms in London.

The name of the Office of Arms, which remained in Dublin Castle until 1987, was changed to the Genealogical Office in 1943. The title of the Genealogical Officer was changed to Chief Herald of Ireland in 1946. Like his predecessor, the Chief Herald authorises the granting of arms to Irish bodies and individuals, including the descendants of Irish emigrants. The office of the Chief Herald is now part of the Genealogy and Heraldry Division of the National Library of Ireland.

In 1943 title of the Ulster King of Arms was changed to the Norroy and Ulster King of Arms. The Norroy and Ulster King of Arms, who is responsible to the Earl Marshal, is the heraldic authority for Northern Ireland.
