The Heraldry of Herefordshire: Being a Collection of the Armorial Bearings of Families Which Have Been Seated in the County at Various Periods Down to the Present Time by George Strong (1848) available at HARC, Hereford, Library reference H929.6.

George Strong (1811-1904) was a doctor and amateur historian living in Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire, UK. In 1839, he married Charlotte Cooke, the daughter of John Cooke and they moved into a mansion called ‘The Chase’ in Ross which was the house her father, John Cooke, had built in 1818. Apart from The Heraldry of Herefordshire George Strong also published The Handbook to Ross and Archenfield in 1863.
