Herald's Visitations were where heralds made tours of the country, starting in 1530, for the purpose of checking on the unlawful assumption and display of arms and of the titles of "esquire" and "gentleman" - in other words, to examine gentleman's claims. Herald's visitations were discontinued in 1686.
