By Letters Patent under the Great Seal dated 13 June 2019, Her Majesty The Queen has appointed Mark John Rosborough Scott to the office of Bluemantle Pursuivant of Arms, vacant since the promotion of Michael Peter Desmond O’Donoghue to the office of York Herald in 2012.
Mark Scott became interested in heraldry and genealogy as a teenager at school in Leeds. He was appointed bluemantle pursuivant by the Queen at the College of Arms earlier this month, and becomes the 77th known holder of the title since its creation in 1414. He graduated from Mansfield College, Oxford with a degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics.
We congratulate Mark on his new appointment and look forward to welcoming him to the legendary Bluemantle’s C.C hospitality at The Nevill Ground soon.
