Families covered: Milbourne (Mylbourne) of Tillington

Most of this page was first shown on a Temporary page on 20.05.07 using Visitation. It was expanded slightly with MGH which reports on this family largely to show the ancestral connection to a Milbourne family of the Christian Herbert who in 1597 married George Milborne, later Sheriff of Monmouthshire, whose family was MGH's main focus. It identifies the arms of the following Milbourne family as "Gules, a chevron between three escallop shells argent".
