Cú Lúardáin Cáelán. Device. Azure, two swords inverted and two arrows fesswise fretted in cross, a bordure argent.
This was pended from the October 1993 meeting.
Roselynd Ælfricsdottir. Device. Sable, a rose branch bendwise, flowered of a garden rose and held by a bird's foot issuant from a point pointed Or.
This was pended from the October 1993 meeting. Corrected emblazon forms to match blazon submitted in the LoI have been received by the Laurel office.
Abner Plunkett. Name and device. Per saltire sable and gules, an annulet and a chief Or.
Aelfthryth of Saxony. Name and device. Or, on a pall inverted between three mullets of six points sable, four mullets of six points Or.
Alfonso Greenleaf. Name and device. Vert, an hourglass within an orle argent.

Faílenn of Deerkeep. Name and device. Counter-ermine, a stag springing and in chief three towers argent.
Hauoc of House Bender. Device change. Sable estencellé Or, a cross formy fitchy throughout argent.
His currently registered device, Per fess sable and gules, a cross formy fitchy throughout argent, is released.
The Grandfather Clause has been held before to apply to armory changes where the new armory has identical conflicts to the previously registered armory.
Oriel of the Gypsies. Name.
Rhiannon of Lostwithiel. Name and device. Per chevron azure and vert, a chevron between two crescents and a cross of ermine spots argent.
Rudolf von der Drau. Name.
Sign[yacute] Jólinnardóttir. Name.
Stanislaw Jan Ossolinski. Badge. (Fieldless) On a cross formy argent four crescents sable.
Teleri Tawel. Badge. Argent, semy of hearts gules, a tower and a bordure azure.

Tusya Tatiana Sudoseva. Name and device. Gules, a bend sinister sable fimbriated Or, overall a sea stag naiant argent.
Wolfgang von Heimbach. Name.
THE FOLLOWING HAVE BEEN RETURNED FOR FURTHER WORK:
Deborah Lanoire. Device. Argent, a panther sejant, the dexter forepaw raised, sable spotted of various tinctures incensed proper, in chief five decrescents sable.
Visual conflict with Bronwyn Banadridh (SCA), Argent, a panther sejant erect pean armed and issuing flames form the mouth and ears gules, orbed azure. While there is enough technical difference between the two, with a CD for the addition of the secondary group and another for the change to tincture of the primary, the visual reality is that of a CD for the addition of the decrescents and "somebody's done something strange to the spots on the cat".
Geof Weakarm. Badge. [Fieldless] A dragon's head couped sable.
Conflict with a badge of the Barony of Storvik, Paly argent and gules, a drakkar prow sable, registered in the January 1994 LoAR. There is a CD for fieldless vs. fielded, but nothing for difference in type of the charge.
Rígán hinn Stilligr. Badge. Argent, a rhinoceros rampant azure.
Conflict with Kendall Tempest (SCA), Argent, a rhinoceros rampant gules, registered elsewhere in this LoAR, with only one CD for the change to the tincture of the beast.
Tristain of Tyne Weir. Device. Per chevron rayonny argent goutty de sang and gules, a triskelion arrondi pometty argent.
The primary charge is neither a classic "triskele" or "triskelion pometty", both of which are shown in the Pictorial Dictionary. As something halfway between the two, we are returning this for consultation with the submitter and redrawing as one or the other.
Ulf Gunnarsson. Device. Azure, two harps and a wolf sejant erect guardant argent.
Conflict with Brees (Papworth p. 98) Azure a wolf rampant argent. And with Clece (Papworth p. 98) Azure a wolf salient argent). This was the subject of a lively debate at the Laurel meeting, as well as in the commentary. In the end, the basic philosophical position of subsuming changes to posture, orientation, type, etc. under changes to number (e.g., Azure, two lions combattant Or conflicts with Azure, a lion rampant Or, with one CD for adding the second lion, but nothing for then changing its orientation) required this to be seen as a conflict, too, with a CD for changing the number of charges, but nothing for then changing their type as well.
Alexandria of Mazzara. Badge. [Fieldless] In bend sinister a bow sable and a shepherd's crook bendwise vert, fretted with an arrow bendwise sinister inverted sable, flighted vert.
As many of the commenters noted, especially in this arrangement, this has every appearance of being three different charges (bow, arrow, and crook) in a single group. As such, this falls afoul of the complexity limits of RfS VIII.1.a.
Eulalie Lockhart. Device. Sable, a swan naiant argent and a demi-sun issuant from sinister chief Or.
Conflict with Clipping-Wicombe (Papworth, p. 307), Sable, a swan close argent ducally gorged and chained Or and with More (Papworth, p. 307), Sable, a swan close within a bordure engrailed Or. In each case there is one CD, for addition of the peripheral charge or for the change to its type, respectively.
Isabel du Lac d'Azur. Device. Azure, a bend sinister Or between a thistle slipped and leaved argent and a pomegranate slipped and leaved Or.
Conflict with Fetzer (Woodward, Combo II), Azure, a bend sinister Or, with one CD for the addition of the secondaries, and with Barbara Caballeus (SCA), Azure, a bend sinister Or between in chief an open book argent leathered Or and in base a horse trippant Or, with one CD for the change to the type of the secondaries.
Sakura Kita Maikeru. Device. Sable three cherry blossoms in fess and a great wave fesswise to sinister, a chief enarched argent.
As emblazoned, the charge in base could be better blazoned, and is more recognizable, as a base wavy crested, which is not a registrable charge.
Sentinel's Keep, Barony of. Name for Order of Vigilance.
Conflict with the San Francisco Vigilance Command (Encyclopedia Britannica, Index Vol. 2, p. 907). As the designators are considered "invisible" for difference, this differs only in the addition of the locative, which is insufficient for order names.
Xavier de Saône. Name and device. Argent, on a bend sinister wavy azure between a sun and a decrescent gules, three mullets of six points argent.
Xavier appears to have been only used as a locative surname in period. As a consequence, the submitted name lacks a given. (It was also suggested that du Saône, "of the Saone", is more likely than the submitted form of the locative.)
The "waves" of the bend sinister were drawn so shallowly as to be hardly worth blazoning. This is being returned for redrawing with proper "big and bold" waves.
Agnes Daunce. Device. Or, on a fess sable between three roses azure, three spur rowels Or.
Conflict with Winterhey (Papworth, p. 789), Or, on a fess sable,three estoiles of the first. There is a CD for the addition of the secondaries, but though the change in type between spur rowels/mullets and estoiles is generally worth a CD, they lack the substantial difference in type necessary to apply X.4.j.ii., which is needed here for the second CD.
Kyrstyan of Cambion. Name.
No documentation was presented for the byname beyond a statement that it is the name of the submitter's household. [This is not entirely true: the registered household name is Clan Cambion. Even to invoke the Grandfather Clause, the name would need to have been submitted as Kyrstyan of Clan Cambion.] Despite a few registrations of the byname from several years ago, we are unwilling to extend the grandfather clause beyond immediate family members. We need some documentation for the byname before we can register this.
Alexander de Saytoune na Ban Dharaich. Device. Argent, semy of hearts gules, a seahorse sustaining a lochaber axe azure.
(The name was returned in the December 1993 LoAR.) The primary charge is not emblazoned as a seahorse, but as a fish-tailed horse head with human arms. As such, it follows no period (or, indeed, post-period) exemplars of which we are aware.
Brand Armand of Lancaster. Device. Gules, on a flame the blade of a sword Or, winged argent, a bordure Or semy of roses sable.
The sword loses its identifiability against the "flames" of the same tincture. (One commenter noted its resemblance to a chain saw.) Were the flames drawn larger (and less regularly) and made "proper" to increase the contrast, this would probably acceptable.
Conner Thornhill. Device. Quarterly checky sable and argent and argent, a cross of two thornvines wavy vert.
There are a couple of problems with the primary charge. One is the difficulty of blazon. Laurel counted no less than six different suggestions at a reblazon. This variety alone tends to point out the possible non-period style of the charge. And as several commenters noted, because of both its thinness and waviness, the primary charge tends to disappear along the lines of partition of the field, making immediate identification a little problematical. Finally, it conflicts with Anketel (Papworth, p. 616), Or, a cross raguly vert and with Raded (Papworth, p. 608), Argent, a cross slipped vert. In each case there is one CD for the change to the field, but nothing for the very minor visual differences to the type of cross.
Damales Redbeard. Household badge for Maison du Cheval Volant. Azure, on a cloud argent, a horseshoe inverted sable.
Conflict with Cassandra de la Mistral (SCA), Azure, a Boreas affronty argent. There is only one CD for the addition of the tertiary, and even that is minimal because it lies where the "face" of Cassandra's Boreas is. Additionally, the cloud here is not drawn in a period manner, but is the modern "cotton candy" form of cloud.
Demetrius Gordianus Analindal. Device. Per chevron gules and sable, a chevron between two crescents argent and a Dalmatian dog's head erased proper.
Conflict with Michell (Papworth, p. 402), Per chevron gules and sable, a chevron between three swans argent. There is only one CD for the change to the type of the secondaries.
Francesc Miguel Joaquim Inacio. Device. Sable, a cross of Cleves Or, on a chief argent a mullet azure between a pair of drinking horns inverted sable.
The charges on the chief are not really arranged in a manner which lends itself to easy blazon, thus pointing out its probable non-period style. Were he to place the three charges in fess rather then enhancing the central charge (and reblazon the "drinking horns inverted" as simply a "pair of bull's horns"), this would probably be registerable.
Henry d'Agincourt. Name.
While this name is, indeed, not a conflict with Henry V, and indeed does not violate any of the specific clauses of RfS V (or even IV), it does, however, fall within the aegis of RfS I.3.a. Conflicting Claims - "A name or piece of armory that creates a false impression of the identity of the submitter will not be registered." SCA names should not cause someone hearing the name to think of some individual other than the SCA person bearing that name. As an example, how many people hearing the name "Dick of Watergate" are going to think of anyone other than Richard Milhous Nixon, with whom the name "Dick of Watergate" neither conflicts nor is pretentious by the Rules? Very few in the SCA hearing the submitted name here are going to think of anyone other than Henry V.
Jerónimo Alexandre José Vicente de Cabral. Name change from Dubhán Treehill and device. Argent, a brown duck naiant proper headed sable, on a chief azure two pairs of musical eighth notes Or.
We need documentation for the use of four given names in Portuguese in period. Even for the Iberian Peninsula, this seems a bit much. Additionally, the LoI and the submitter's forms have the fourth given as Vicente, but all the documentation was for Vincente.
In addition to the problem that several commenters had with a "brown duck proper, headed sable", conjoined eighth notes are a post-period form of music notation.
Karol Johanna von Gartenheit. Name change from Karol Gartenheit.
Gartenheit, though grandfathered to the submitter as a surname, does not mean "high garden", but rather "garden-ness, the state of being a garden". As such, it is not a placename which would be used with the article von.
Lucinda of Naevehjem. Badge. Azure, a periwinkle, a bordure invected argent.
Conflict with Bessington (Papworth, p. 868), Azure, a cinquefoil argent, British 23rd Division (Military Ordinary #676A), Azure, a rose argent, and with Royal Burg of Inverbervie (Public Heraldry, Combo I, and Scotts II, p. 358), Azure, a rose argent, barbed and seeded proper. The visual differences between a periwinkle and a rose are too small to allow for a CD. As a consequence, in each case there is only one CD for the addition of the bordure.
Naevehjem, Barony of. Name for Order of the Dragon's Flame.
As noted in the LoI, this conflicts with the Barony of the Flame and the Flame Pursuivant. Presumably this is why no submission form for the name was included in the Laurel packet.
Naevehjem, Barony of. Name for Order of the Dragon's Dream.
This does not appear to follow any period exemplars of which we are aware, nor does it match in style their other "Dragon's [part]" proposals. Order names in period seem to have been based on tangible objects (such as the Order of the Golden Fleece) or on abstract concepts which members of the Order embody (such as the Legion of Honor.) The "Order of the Dragon's Dream" doesn't appear to fit either of these categories.
Richard Surefoot Mallory. Device. Per pale argent and gules, a dragon gules and a natural tiger argent marked sable combattant, a bordure counterchanged.
This falls afoul of RfS XI.3., the ban on the appearance of marshalling in armory. This submission has the clear appearance of impaled arms, which the counterchanged bordure does not in the least diminish.
Sayf al-Tanweer, Canton of. Name.
The submitters have not demonstrated a practice of placenames derived from laqabs, nor could any of the commenters lend support to this formation. Neither does the cited example of Cairo (al-Qáhirah, "the Victorious") support this name. Originally called al-Mansúriyyah, it later became al-Qáhirah al-Mu'izziyyah, "the victorious [city] of [the Fatimid Caliph] Mu'izz [li-Dín alláh]", similar to the fashion by which "The City of Our Lady the Queen of the Angels" (el pueblo de nuestra señora la reina de los angeles) became Los Angeles.
Steven of Naevehjem. Device. Azure, two chevronels braced, in chief an owl displayed argent.
The owl here is not really displayed but rather striking affronty, a posture which has been grounds for return in the past.
Tristram Faustus Chantereau. Badge. Gules, a Catherine's wheel Or bladed and within a border argent.
(Submitted on the LoI as Tristam Faustus Chantereau, the above form (with the second "r" in the given) was the submitted and registered form, and is the form on the submission forms here.) Conflict with The Master and Fellows of St. Catherine's College (Public, Combo I), Gules, a Catherine wheel Or, and with Marteioys (Papworth, p. 1121), Gules, a wheel Or. In each case, there is only one CD for the addition of the bordure.
Wintermist, Shire of. Badge. [Fieldless] A snowflake gules.
Conflict with Blount (Papworth, p. 684), Barry of five argent and azure, an escarbuncle gules, as cited in the LoI. As noted in the LoAR of 17 October 1993, p. 17, there is not a CD between a snowflake and an escarbuncle.
Süleyman al-Hazar. Device. Per bend sinister stepped to base sable and argent, a decrescent Or and a Lochaber axe bendwise sinister reversed gules.
Master Bruce, in the Cover Letter of 18 September 1992, had a page-long discussion of fields per bend [sinister] bevilled: the version here matches none of the attested forms, but is the inversion of the acceptable form found in Legh's Accidence of Armory. At the very least, this would have to be returned for redrawing. However, it was additionally noted that allowing per bend bevilled fields (which normally appeared without charges) to be charged might be considered if the charges were in a balanced arrangement. Unlike charges on each side of a bevilled line do not appear to meet this criterion.
Andreas Tillman von Severin. Device. Or, a hunting horn reversed gules, stringed azure, and a chief checky argent and gules.
Conflict with Orange ((Papworth, p. 948 and Woodward, Combo II), Or, a buglehorn stringed and virolled gules. There is only one CD, for the addition of the chief.
Geoffrey MacDhomhnuill. Device. Argent, a chevron inverted between in chief a thistle and in base three crosses crosslet gules.
Conflict with Grendon (Papworth, p. 373), Argent, a chevron reversed gules. There is only one CD, for the addition of the secondary charges.
Guise Buron vom Duesseltal. Device. Per bend sinister sable and gules, a lightning bolt Or.
Conflict with Thora of Thescorre (SCA), Quarterly sable and gules, a lightning bolt palewise Or. There is only one CD, for the change to the field.
Hector aus Pier. Badge for Haus Apfelhain. Quarterly argent and gules, an apple vert.
Conflict with British Northern Home Command (Military Ordinary #701), Azure, an apple vert. There is one CD, for the changes to the field. (In any resubmission, the submitter should be asked to draw his apple larger and rounder.)
Insula Draconis, Shire of. Device. barry wavy azure and argent, two dragons combattant gules maintaining between them a sword inverted, all within a laurel wreath Or.
Conflict with Thomas Hickson (SCA), Barry wavy and per pale azure and argent, two wyverns combattant gules. There is a CD for the addition of the laurel wreath, but the complexity of the two fields makes it difficult to warrant granting a second for the per pale line of Thomas' device.
Joseph Keringtoun. Device. Azure, semy of oak trees argent, a chevron throughout Or and in base a domestic cat passant argent.
The emblazon is more properly blazoned as Azure, a chevron Or between in chief six trees and in base in pale a tree and a cat passant argent. As such this conflicts with Abborne (Pap. 374), Azure, a chevron Or, with only one CD for the addition of the secondaries. Were this redrawn with the trees all the same size as a semy, and the cat obviously larger as a secondary charge in base, it would be clear of the conflicts cited here.
Kefira von Reehe. Name.
No documentation was presented that Kefira is a given name in any language, nor could any of the commenters find support for the locative.
Malcolm Rorie Rowntree. Device. Purpure, a triskelion of comets heads outward between three comets conjoined one and two in orle argent.
The blazon here, while marginally better than the one in the LoI, still does not adequately described the outer group of comets: they are disposed in orle, but they are oriented in annulo, and as a result neither blazon is entirely satisfactory. This is an indication that the style of the design itself isn't period. The use of a single charge in what appears to be two separate groups of charges on the field is also an anomaly. And if they aren't two separate groups, then the arrangement of the six identical charges on the field is an anomaly.
Mathieu Chartrain. Device. Gules, two bars enarched between four annulets, three and one, Or.
Conflict with Harcourt (Papworth, p. 17), Gules, two bars Or. There is a CD for the addition of the secondaries, but enarching of this type is a period artistic convention to represent the curvature of the shield.
Morat d'Orleans. Name.
Morat, as a variant of Maurat, is only documented as a locative surname. As a consequence, the name as submitted lacks a given name.
Simon de Roquefort. Device. Sable, a baton sinister couped gules fimbriated between in bend an oak sprig Or and a boar passant argent.
The device falls afoul of the complexity limits of RfS VIII.1.a. It has three charges of nearly equal visual weight in a single group, with the "primary" baton having the same visual "presence" on the field as the "secondary" charges. As a consequence, the charges appear to be a single group of primaries rather than a primary charge between two secondaries.
Dur of Hidden Mountain. Badge change. [Fieldless] A cross within and conjoined to a mascle sable.
Conflict with Hotta (Hawley's Mon, p. 65), A cross within and conjoined to a mascle. There is only the CD for fieldlessness. This also conflicts with Hanley (Papworth, p. 349), Argent, a buckle lozengewise sable, again with only the fieldless vs. fielded CD.
Florian Dupommier. Device. Per saltire Or and gules, on a cross formy a fleur-de-lys argent.
The emblazon is not drawn as any cross that any of the commenters could identify. It needs to be redrawn in a documented form.
Roger of Blackmoore. Device. Sable, a pair of deer antlers in saltire Or and in chief a moon in her plenitude argent.
Not even the large emblazon showed deer antlers (more correctly, attires), but something akin to "two palm fronds crossed in saltire at the stems". We are returning this for redrafting as recognizable attires. (Would the submitter consider a massacre?)
Bryce MacLones. Name.
It is not possible to simply drop the Scottish patronymic particle mac in front of a variant an English surname (in this case, a variant of Lane) to create a patronymic byname.
Gwendolyn of Aaron Isles. Device. Per chevron ermine and gules, a chevron sable between in chief three lilies in chevron gules and in base a dove migrant argent.
The "lilies" are not recognizable as such. We are not sure from the large emblazon form just what kind of flowers they are supposed to be. This, combined with the odd wing placement of the "migrant" dove, pushes this over the edge of acceptability in terms of identifiability and reproducability.
Manfred von dem Schwarzwald. Badge. [Fieldless] A stag trippant sable attired maintaining a lance bendwise sinister argent.
Conflict with Larh (Papworth, p. 58), Argent, a stag sable, Hertington (Papworth, p. 58), Argent, a hart passant sable, and Klettenberg (Woodward, Combo II), Argent, a stag passant sable. In each case there is only one CD for fieldlessness, as the maintained charge is insufficient for the necessary second.
Caroline de Mercier. Name and device. Azure, on a compass star chief point flory Or a lozenge azure, a bordure Or.
Caroline is a post period name. We need evidence of its use in period before we may register it. Additionally, de Mercier appears to be an error in Bardsley; documented forms are Mercier, le Mercier, and du Mercier.
The primary charge is halfway between a compass star and a compass rose. As a consequence, its identifiability is problematical. The device also has a conflict with the Shire of Western Keep (SCA, registered 1/94), Azure, on a sun within a laurel wreath Or a tower azure. There is one CD for the difference in type of the peripheral charge, but nothing for the change to type only of the tertiary per X.4.j.ii.
Châteaux sur Souris, Stronghold of. Name and device. Gules, on a fess wavy between two mice rampant addorsed, tails entwined argent and a laurel wreath Or, a bar wavy azure.
The problem here is that while the general style of the name can be supported, the specifics are more problematical. No one was able to document "mouse", in English or in French, as a period or even possibly period river or place name. And of all the rivers apparently named after animals in England (which would probably not really lend much support to names in another language, French), only one, the Otter, definitely was, with two other "possibles".
As a side note, while the mini-emblazon this time around was an improvement over the earlier submission, the large emblazon was the reverse. You might recommend to them to copy the prior emblazon in any resubmission.
Désirée Gabriel de Laval. Device. Sable, a cross of flames proper between in bend sinister two goblets Or.
The cross of flames is a modern innovation which has only been registered in the SCA once, and that in 1979. Without evidence that ordinaries of flame were used in period armory, or that such are compatible with period armory, we will not register ordinaries of flames.
Eleanor Isabeau le Coeur. Device. Azure, a heart Or within an orle of fleurs-de-lys argent.
Conflict with Robert de Termes (Renesse vol. 3, p. 357), Azure, a coeur [heart] Or. There is only one CD for the addition of orle.
John Paul Devereaux. Device. Azure, a mullet Or voided gules between in fess two double-bitted axes and issuant from base a demi-sun Or.
Conflict with Hall (Papworth, p. 12). Azure, three battleaxes in fess Or. There is a CD for the addition of the peripheral charge, but nothing for the change to type and partial change of tincture to only one of the group of three primary charges.
Corin y Cynydd. Device. Sable, on a bend sinister between a bow bendwise sinister Or and a sword bendwise sinister inverted proper, a quiver with three arrows ermine.
Though blazoned as "counter-ermine" in the LoI, the quiver is actually drawn and colored in as ermine, making it metal on metal.
Dún Bólacht, Canton of. Name and device. Or, in pale a cow statant sable and a laurel wreath vert, within a bordure embattled sable.
Bólacht is defined in Dinneen, p. 108, as "an abundance of cows and milk; a stock of kine and the produce and profit thereof; dairying; dowry"; not "cattle", as the submitters believe. Palimpsest believes that "Fort of the Cows" would be Dún na mBó (ignoring whether "fort of the cows" is a likely construction for a placename, which some of the commenters questioned. This issue should be addressed in any resubmission).
Though blazoned as a "laurel wreath" the charge in base is really two sprays of laurel, stems crossed in saltire. This needs to be redrawn with a laurel wreath.
Elisheva bat Simon Halevi. Name and badge for Federated Households of Thunder. Sable, a lightning bolt in annulo points to base Or surmounted by a lightning bold palewise argent.
The word federated is first cited in the OED dated to 1814. This is clearly post period. While thunder appears as an occupational byname dated to at least 1332, there was no support for the use of the word "of" in this formation. The documentation would however support House Thunder.
The use of lightning bolts as charges in and of themselves is an SCA innovation, the use of a lightning bolt in annulo is therefore to steps from period practice. This is farther then we are willing to go. We repeat the earlier suggestion made in the LoAR of April 1991, asking whether they would consider a wheel surmounted by a thunderbolt.
Miriel d'Estoile. Badge. Sable, in pale a compass star and three bars wavy couped argent.
The arrangement of the charges is very modern. The badge also conflicts with Ethelfield (Papworth, p. 39), Sable, three bars wavy argent, and with Basire (Papworth, p. 43), Gules, three bars wavy argent and in chief a mullet of six points of the second. Against Ethelfield there is a CD for the addition of the charge in chief, and against Basire for the tincture of the field. Given the changes in the Rules, she may wish to reconsider submitting her previous proposal, which would now clear against the conflicts for which it was returned.
Oengus of Greymist. Name.
The locative is extremely unlikely. We know of no period name formations of this "misty" type. The many "color + thing" locatives the submitter cites in his documentation (e.g., Blackwood, Blackwell, Blacklock, &co.) are all much more "physical" than this proposal.
Oengus of Greymist. Name for House Greymist.
This suffers from all of the difficulties of the personal name, and additionally conflicts with the Principality of the Mists, with the only difference being the addition of the adjective, which is insufficient by our current rules.
Outlands, Kingdom of. Title for Golden Heart Herald.
Conflict with the Philippine's Order of the Golden Heart. The only difference is the designator, "invisible" by our rules.
Torcail Gilleghaolain. Badge. [Fieldless] A thistle flower slipped in the form of a cavendish knot fesswise proper.
Conflict with the House of Savoy, A savoy (or cavendish) knot. As with the August 1993 return of the Middle Kingdom's badge for the Order of the Cavendish Knot, there is only one CD for fieldlessness.
Torcail Gilleghaolain. Name House Caer Knot.
The household name conflicts with the Company of the Knot, a Monarchical order of Knighthood founded in Naples in 1352. If caer is considered as an adjective, and the designators "house" and "company" are invisible for purposes of difference, then this differs by only the addition of the adjective. This is insufficient difference by the Rules.
The name also has, to all intents and purposes, a double designator: in English, House Fort Knot. The fact that they are in different languages only serves to exacerbate the problem. He needs to choose just one.
Eric Thorvaldson. Device. Bendy sinister gules and argent, on a sun azure, a Thor's hammer Or.
Conflict with Brian O Seachnasaigh (SCA), [Fieldless] A compass star azure charged with a griffin segreant reguardant Or maintaining a wavy-bladed sword fesswise proper. There is a CD for fielded vs. fieldless, but no CDs are available for the change to the type of primary or the change to type only of the tertiary.
Gwydden Lawen. Device. Sable, a fret and on a chief Or, a label azure.
[Submitted on the LoI as Gwydden Lawden, the extra "d" in the byname appears to be a typo.] Conflict with London Borough of Merton (Public Heraldry, Combo I), Sable, a fret and on a chief Or two keys in saltire, addorsed and wards to chief, surmounted by a sword, points to base, between a doubled headed eagle displayed sable, armed gules, and a lion passant sable, armed and langued gules. There is only one CD for the multiple changes to the charge(s) on the chief.
THE FOLLOWING HAVE BEEN PENDED UNTIL THE MAY 1994 LAUREL MEETING:
Alexandria Cecil of Fairbrook. Device. Azure, a bend sinister ermine between a candle and candlestick flammant and a Latin cross argent.
Blazoned as Or in the LoI, the large emblazon has the cross argent. As a consequence, we have to pend this until the May meeting for research under the correct blazon.
Dana Moirreach. Device. Vert, issuant from a castle argent a demi-griffin, in chief three mullets Or.
The LoI blazoned that castle as Or; it was emblazoned on the forms as argent. This is pended to the May 1994 meeting for research under the correct blazon.
