The English College of Arms made its first - and only - attempt to regulate the arms of English subjects in North America in 1812 with the publication of Armorial of North America, Being a Register of Arms of All Lawful Bearers in His Majesty's North American Provinces. The work was extremely conservative, excluding nearly everyone with assumed arms, even if they had been assumed generations earlier. It so upset the provincial gentry that within a few years Virginia, Carolina, and the New England provinces had established their own heraldic authorities.
