PEYTON SOCIETY OF VIRGINIA TIES ARE STILL AVAILABLE
Celebrate your heritage by wearing these great silk ties!
These silk ties are far superior to the polyester ties that some members purchased in the 1970s.

John de Peyton the Elder (living in 1242), Lord of Peyton Hall in Boxford and Stoke Neyland.
The ties are available in two colors, traditional navy blue and warm wine, both accented
with narrow gold stripes. There will be a custom woven label on the reverse of the tie stating it
was specially designed for The Peyton Society of Virginia. The ties are fully lined, 4" wide, 57” long.

Peyton Heraldic Chart
The Peyton Society of Virginia has made available copies of the elaborate, illuminated Heraldic Chart of the
Peyton family originally prepared by the Herald’s College in 1688. The copy now in the Virginia Historical
Society was prepared about 1885. The chart was prepared for Edward Peyton, fifth son of Sir Edward Peyton.
The Peyton Society wishes to express its appreciation to the Virginia Historical Society for its cooperation and
support that made this project possible.
The lower half of the chart, including a handsome rendering of the Peyton arms, is reproduced in The
Peytons of Virginia II as the 3rd illustration in the Color Section after page 18 of Volume One. The original
chart measured 13 feet x 30 inches. The copies are available in two versions: 1) color print, and 2) CD.
The color print is a ¾ image of the original Herald’s Chart, divided into two sections placed side-by-side
in a 5 foot x 3 foot 9 inches full color print. The charts are sprayed with a clear Ph-neutral laminate for
protection. The charts can be framed or just hung with dowels. They will be shipped in tubes. The charts sell
for $100, including $21.00 to package and ship the rolled print.
The CD copies of the chart sell for $10, including shipping and handling. They will be full size and
shape, which will take 14 or so pages in the CD file. Also, one will be able to enlarge the images, which
will make it easier to read the Latin script on the chart.
NOTE: This version of the Heraldic Chart is not the same as the version donated to the Alderman
Library in Charlottesville by Bernard Peyton Chamberlain that was extended to include the American
branch, as it was understood in 1885. The Alderman version is 19 feet long and includes the additional
The Peyton Heraldic Chart was produced by Keith-Fabry Reprographics and to date 20 prints and 73 CDs have been sent to
purchasers. A DVD version of the print has been sent to Lee Shepard at the Virginia Historical Society in recognition for his
cooperation in lending the Chart to be scanned. A few color prints and an unlimited number of the CD version of the chart are
2004 Restoration Work - Saint Andrew’s Church PowerPoint CD
The Peyton Society of Virginia has made available copies of a CD prepared by Ian A. Powys of
Isleham, Cambridgeshire, UK to record the progress of the roof restoration undertaken at Saint
Andrew’s Church in the Spring of 2004. The disk contains two files, one being a diary kept by
Ian of daily progress on the restoration work and the other being a Power Point slide show of
photographs taken at various stages of the work.
Erected in 1330, Saint Andrew’s Church has had two major benefactors, the first being the
Bernard family and later the Peyton family. With the marriage of Sir Thomas Peyton to
Margaret Bernard in about 1430, Isleham Hall became the principal Peyton family residence and
St, Andrew’s Church, the family’s place of prayer and burial. In 1495, the second son of
Thomas, Crystofer Peyton, completed his father’s plans of building the clearstory with its carved
“angel roof.” To this day the family name of Peyton is closely associated with the church. Open
the CD and see the church as it has never before been seen, including rarely seen tombs and
mysterious “choirboy” graffiti. See up close how medieval carpenters did their work securing
the beams and roof rafters. Learn about the “Death Watch Beetle” and the Pipistrelle, a resident bat of the church not much
larger than your thumb. See roof beams riddled with buckshot where Vicars attempted to drive out birds. View up close how the
“fallen angel” was restored and the work undertaken to make a mould of the “Green Man.” Up close photos of the famous ten
“great angels” are included in the disk plus much, much more.
This CD should be of particular interest to members of The Peyton Society of Virginia because it contributed $10,000 to St.
Andrews Church towards this very roof restoration project. Whether by chance or design, Ian Powys’ slide show brings out the
color and personality of the church for all to see. If you are a Peyton, the disk is a must buy, and it will also make a nice present.
All proceeds from the sale of the CD other than the cost of producing the CD and postage (usually $1-3) will be
contributed to Saint Andrew’s Church.
