The Browns of Nottingham. (No other title.) Pp. 18.

This record by Gilbert Cope, of West Chester, Penn' s privately printed. It concerns the family of William Brown and James Brown, of the Society of Friends, early settlers in Pennsylvania.

The Heaeock Family.- Jonathan and Ann Heacock, who emigrated to America from England and settled in Chester county, Pennsylvania, in 1711, and their Descendants. 18G9. [Privately printed.] Pp.28.

Our Ancestors. 1809. [Privately printed.] pp. 20.
We cite these titles of two Pennsylvania genealogies, but do not consider them as

subjects for criticism under the circumstances. They show, however, that the taste

for investigating family history has reached a new field, and we hope for valuable

results in the future.

ArmsGoodwin. ArmsBradbury. Drawn by Miss Harriet Baix

Bridge, 24 Russell Road, Kensington, London, Eng., for William T.

Goodwin, A.B., A..M., LL.B., and Captain U. S. A. Lithographed by • F. Geese, Richmond, Va. Published by West & Johnston, Ya. B. W.

Sanborn & Co., Concord, N. H. 18G9. Pp. 17.

This publication consists of sixteen coats of arms very neatly drawn and lithographed, eight being of different families by the name of Goodwin. We presume it is meant as a companion to some genealogy, but the information here given is rather curious than valuable.
