Beaumont Herald Extraordinary


Beaumont Herald Extraordinary

Beaumont Herald of Arms Extraordinary is an officer of arms extraordinary in England. Beaumont is a royal herald, but is not a member of the College of Arms. The office was created in 1982 and named after the barony of Beaumont, one of the subsidiary titles of the Earl Marshal, the Duke of Norfolk. The badge of office combines the cross potent of the Kings of Jerusalem from whom the Beaumonts are descended, with the lion and fleur-de-lis charges from the family coat of arms. It is blazoned "In front of a Cross Potent a Lion rampant within eight Fleurs-de-lis in orle Or."

The current Beaumont Herald of Arms Extraordinary is Francis Sedley Andrus, LVO, MA (Oxford).
