Henry CHITTING 1580-1638
Son of Thomas Chitting, of Ickworth, Suffolk. His early career is unrecorded, but he is thought to have benefitted from the patronage of Sir Nicholas Bacon; he became Chester Herald in 1618, and undertook numerous visitations. He was admitted to Gray's Inn in 1633.
A few books with Chitting's armorial stamp survive; the extent and disposition of his library is not known.
