College of Arms pedigree

This is the pedigree mentioned in the letter sent in 1981 by the College of Arms in London to Mrs S M Cree of of Soberton, Hampshire. See Grant of Arms to John Cree late of Calcutta. We have not previously had sight of the pedigree itself or even a full transcription because of the cost of having it transcribed by the College of Arms. However Trevor Cree has now (May 2014) obtained a transcription which is shown here. It confirms some aspects of the ancestry of John Cree, merchant of Calcutta. It also adds a significant amount of detail to what we knew of the individuals mentioned in it. It may yet help to shed light on the ancestry of John Cree himself.

 

Thanks to Trevor Cree for commissioning the transcribing of this pedigree by the College of Arms
