  Queen Mary's Roll
 

c. 1562
Reference letters QM
No. of shields 204

Original. Lost

Copy. National Library of Scotland, Adv.MS.34.4.16. This is a tricked roll by Sir James Balfour of Denmiln, Lyon King of Arms 1630-1654.

Sir James' copy has, in his handwriting the following

Scottish cotts of armes
ye cotts of 267 knights
landed gentlemen of ye kinge
dome of Scotland as they were pre
sented to our soverane Lady
Marie by the grace of Gode Quene
of Scotland and douager of france
by Sir Robert Forman Lyone Kinge
of Armes in anno 1532

The shields are very neatly tricked on a continuous parchment roll, three shields to a line. As there is no appearance of the the roll being torn at the end, I must assume that Sir James miscounted the number of shields, or failed to complete his copy of the original.
The date given in his inscription must also be wrong. 1562 seems the most likely year, as that in which the widowed Queen returned to Scotland.
Stodart, in his 'Scottish Arms' called this Roll 'Forman's'. However, to prevent confusion with other works of Sir Robert Forman, I have named this collection of Arms 'Queen Mary's Roll'.
I am grateful to the National Library of Scotland for supplying me with photo-copies of this Roll, and to Miss Vivien Wilson, a fellow member of our Society, for assistance in the interpretation of the tricks and inscriptions.
