MS “Norfolk 44, 9” was registered c.1968 at the College of Arms, London. The manuscript shows the descent of Nathaniel Littleton of Accomack and Northampton Counties, Virginia (will dated 12 April 1654) from Sir Henry Grey (d.13 Jan 1449/50) and his wife Antigone, illegitimate daughter of Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester. Nathaniel Littleton is one of only three known immigrants to British colonial America who have traceable descent from King Henry IV of England. This article gives an armorial for MS “Norfolk 44, 9” along with some additional biographical details.
