THE FOLLOWING HAVE BEEN REGISTERED:

bendwise sinister inverted Or the head charged with an estoile
Edmund de la Haye. Badge. Per pale azure and Or,
a crane in his vigilance counterchanged collared and chained
Elianor Talbot of Wynchester. Name.
Submitted as Elianor Talbot of Winchester, we have changed the
locative to Wynchester per the client's request.
Elisabeth de Rossignol. Badge. (Fieldless) A
hawk's lure Or.
The submission had the name in the form éisabeth de
Rossignol. Checking the forms submitted when the name was
registered, while the documentation references the name in the
accented form, the submission forms do not have an
Gareth Tancred Wilfirth. Badge. (Fieldless) A
horned owl affronty azure.
Gareth Tancred Wilfirth. Badge. Per saltire Or
and gules, a horned owl affronty azure.
Jacob Seumas MacGregor. Alternative persona name
of Jacob the Shameless.
Mountain Edge, Shire of. Device. Per fess Or and
sable, a lion rampant counterchanged on a chief sable three
laurel wreaths Or.

Ermine, a pale endorsed azure.
Atlantia, Consort of. Device change. Per pale
argent and azure, on a fess wavy cotised counterchanged an
escallop erminois, overall a wreath of roses proper.
Effective with the January 1997 Laurel meeting, any changes to
royal armory (king/kingdom/queen/consort/crown prince/crown
princess/prince/princess/heir/heiress) must follow the same
procedure that any official SCA group must for changing their
arms. However, since this ruling was not in place when Atlantia
submitted their device change, and additionally since they have
provided a signed letter from the crown, seneschal and principal
herald, and since Laurel is fully aware that the populace was
polled on this issue, we see no reason not to register this
Atlantia, Kingdom of. Change of
varr Óásson. Name
Submitted as varr Olásson we have corrected this by
adding the missing accent.
Brenna Kara. Device. Or, a dragon sejant erect
affronty, wings displayed, facing sinister vert atop a mountain
sable and in chief two suns gules.
Joseph of Aberdeen. Device. Gules, a Latin cross
bottony between in bend two pairs of compasses and in bend
sinister two winged grenades Or.

Ealasaid Cathasach. Device. Azure, on a bend
gules fimbriated, between a lion salient guardant contourny Or
and a unicorn salient argent, three fleurs-de-lys palewise
Esmerelda of Dun Or. Holding name and device
(see RETURNS for name). Per pale Or and sable, two fir trees and
a mountain of three peaks counterchanged.
Submitted with the name Esmerelda de Andalucia.
Ludwig von Ravenstein. Device. Per pale gules
and Or, a raven displayed sable perched atop three annulets
interlaced two and one counterchanged.
Marie Elaine de Womwell. Badge. [Fieldless] On a
goutte de larmes, a fleur-de-lys argent.
While there are some period exemplars of gouttes shaped like a
modern tear drop, the majority of period evidence shows them to
look much more like a thin drop with a wavy tail. Those gouttes
are not voidable or eligible for X.4.a.ii. Therefore, effective
the January 1997 Laurel meeting, (allowing any gouttes in the
pipeline to get processed under the old precedent) gouttes will
not be considered voidable charges, nor will they be eligible for
Morgan O'Daire. Household name for House
Wolvestead would be more characteristic of all but the very end
of our period.
Seosaidh MacFaoilchére. Name.
Submitted as Seòaidh MacFaoilchére, we have dropped
the accent on the first name as it appears to be out of
Tristana Raefenloch. Badge. [Fieldless] On a
snowflake azure a fleur-de-lys Or.
Submitted as a badge for Household de Winter, the household name
has been returned.
Aarnimetsä Barony of. Order name.
Katkenneen kynä ritarikunta.
A question was raised about the order name, as to whether it
might be presumptuous since the root is ritari which means
knight. However, Ritarikunta is no more nor less than the Finnish
word for an order of this type; that it is translated to English
as order of knighthood is because there is no single word 'order'
in Finnish. It is true that the word is a compound noun
consisting of ritari 'knight' and kunta 'a collective;
municipality'. Similarly, tiedekunta 'faculty' consists of tiede
'science' and kunta, and lautakunta 'council' of lauta 'plank'
and kunta. It is one of the characteristics of the Finnish
language that the meaning of a compound noun is not necessarily,
or even generally, simply the sum of the meanings of its parts.
Based on this, we find the order name acceptable for SCA
Andreas Tillman von Severin. Device. Or, a
hunting horn gules stringed azure and on a chief checky argent
and gules a label of four points azure.
This was registered to the submitter 6/95.
Aros, Shire of. Badge. Or, an owl volant
guardant wings addorsed sable and in base a trimount gules.
The group's arms have an owl that looks virtually identical to
Hayko Wickram. Name.
Insula Draconis, Shire of. Device. Barry wavy
argent and azure, two dragons combattant gules maintaining
between themselves a sword, all within a laurel wreath or.
The redrawing clears the visual conflict with Thomas Hickson
(SCA), with which this was returned 2/94.
Magdalena Francisca de Goya. Device. Purpure, a
sun argent eclipsed purpure within a bordure argent ermined
This was registered to the submitter 6/95.
Olaf Eriksson önklo. Device. Or, an eagle's
leg erased sable and a chief urdy azure.
This was registered to the submitter 6/95.
Uto von den Süpfen. Name and device. Sable,
a pentagon gules fimbriated Or.
While the name "of the swamps" seems unlikely, there are areas
where more than one swamp abounds, so it is possible.
Please instruct the submitter to draw the pentagon
Vladimir Bugaev. Device. Per pale gules and
sable, on a pile cotised argent an elephant's head cabossed
This was registered to the submitter 6/95.
Wieland Wickram. Name (see RETURNS for
Ann Sarasin. Name.

hound's heads couped respectant Or.
Baldric of Blackwater. Name.
Brannat Dub. Name and device. Azure, on the
crossbar of a tau cross throughout between two mullets argent,
three ravens sable.
Submitted as Brannat Dhubh we have put it in a more acceptable
Bríe níDheáhaidh. Name.
Submitted as Bride ni Déghaidh, we have added the
necessary accents, and aspirated the patronymic.
Brychan ap Frideric. Name and device. Argent, a
tower sable, on a chief gules a vol argent.
Cadifor Cynan. Name.
Cerridwen of Heygate. Name.
Delphine du Dauphiné Device. Azure, six
colt's foot blossoms in profile Or, a chief indented argent.
The submitted picture is extremely close to the drawing of colt's
foot blossom's found in Gerard's Herbal (1633 edition), pg. 811.
Given that the book was published in our "gray" area, colt's foot
blossoms should be acceptable charges in the SCA.
Eoin Cerd. Name and device. Vert, three rabbits
courant in annulo conjoined by the ears argent.
Submitted as Eoin Ceard, we have changed the surname to a more
Gwendolen Lambert. Name and device. Per fess
purpure and vert, a chevron Or between two roses and a lamb
Normally we do not permit the "baby" forms of an animal. For the
sake of the cant on the name, Lambert, we are permitting it
Gwenhwyvar Telynores. Name and device. Purpure,
a harp between three increscent moons argent.
Submitted as Gwenhwyvar Telenores, we have changed the byname to
the correct feminine form per Harpy.
Hartmut Schultze. Name.
Submitted as Hartmut von Schultze, we have dropped the
Ian Wainwright. Name and device. Argent, a wagon
Isenwulf Thorolfssone. Name.
Submitted as Isenwulf Thorolfsson, we have changed the byname to
a more reasonable form.
Jana Haviland. Device. Vert, an open book
between three roses argent.
Katja Davidova Orlova Khazarina. Name change
from Katja Orlova
Submitted as Liadain níDheirdre Chaomháaigh, we
have added the necessary accent to the given name.
Lukas Bontyne. Name and device. Vert, a stork
statant, dexter foot raised, wings elevated and addorsed,
maintaining in its sinister foot a gauntlet, on a chief enarched
Or two gauntlets azure.
Maire ingen Echmarcaig. Name.
Montevale, Shire of. Badge. (Fieldless) A stag
springing Or charged with an ermine spot sable.
The submission raised the issue of a visual conflict with Philip
of the Golden Stag (SCA) Bendy gules and argent, a stag rampant
erminois. There is no visual conflict because of the difference
in the fields. Visual conflict takes the whole submission into
account as a visual whole. There are three technical CD's
between these two submissions, one for field, one for tincture of
the primary, and one for addition of the tertiary.
Octavius Gellius. Name.
Submitted as Octavianus Gellius, we have changed the given name
to make the entire name more plausible.
Owen the Mad. Name and device. Per pale sable
and argent, a decrescent moon and an increscent moon, a base
engrailed counterchanged argent and gules.
Philippa Graves. Name.
Rose Pipes. Name and device. Sable, a natural
tiger rampant contourny Or marked sable, in chief three roses
Ségíe ingen Anmchada. Name.
Submitted as Ségine ingen Anmchada, we have added the
necessary accent to the given name.
Stefan Alexsander Bäenreiter. Name and
device. Sable, in pale a mullet and a bear passant argent, a
bordure compony argent and azure.
Zachary Wolfhunter. Device change. Argent, a
wolf rampant maintaining two arrows inverted sable and on a chief
enarched gules a demi-sun Or.
Bran MacDavid of Windhaven. Name and device.

Chasteau Nouveau, Canton of. Name.
Damian Grafton of Yorkshire. Name and device.

Eugenia of Baysham. Device. Argent, a bunch of
grapes, slipped and leaved proper, on a chief azure three
Heggr Skapti. Name only (see returns for
Ivan Matfeevich Rezansky. Name and device. Vert,
a bee proper winged between three octofoils Or.
Jonathus Yuebanc. Device. Per bend sinister
argent and gules, a caduceus sable and a mortar and pestle
Katinka von Trifels. Device. Argent, a bear s
head erased contourny sable and on a chief per pale gules and
azure three estoiles of eight rays Or.
Konrad Josef Urbanowicz. Name.
Submitted as Konrad Jóef Urbanowicz, we have eliminated
the accent to make the name be more likely.
Mikael O Morchoe. Name and device. Argent vˆtu
vert, a trident gules and in chief two gladii Or.
Pietro Niccolo da San Tebaldo. Name and device.
Or, a pall inverted azure surmounted by an orle counterchanged.
We allow an ordinary surmounted by another to be counterchanged.
While this is not good style, it is at worst one
Rudiger von Stuttgart. Name and device. Per pale
azure and sable, a flanged mace bendwise sinister between two
crosses formy argent.
Sarra Bossard. Household name for Confrerie du
Lapin and household badge. Azure, a coney salient argent within a
mascle of four swords conjoined point to hilt proper.
Shlomo Korobenik. Name.
Cordelia fitzRobert of York. Device. Gules, a
demi-sun in splendor Or issuant from a cloud argent.
After much thought we have decided that there is a CD for the
addition of the cloud, so this is clear of Lothar Gottfried con
Katzenellenbogen (SCA) Gules semy of comets inverted, issuant
from base a demi-sun Or, and Shauna Branwen (SCA) Per saltire
vert and sable, a demi-sun Or. Against Edward III of England
(important mundane armory) (Fieldless) A sunburst Or, issuant
from clouds proper., the second CD comes from the difference
between a sunburst - bunches of spikes and a demi-sun - a
demi-roundel with spikes sticking out.
Eirik i Sandvik. Name and device. Vert, a pile
inverted barry wavy argent and azure between two garbs Or and a
chief indented argent.
Submitted as Eirikr Sandvik, we have changed the name to more
period form, per the submitter's request.
Elspeth the Semstress of Dunkeld. Name and
device. Or, two needles in saltire sable between flaunches
Submitted as Elspeth the Seamstress of Dunkeld, we have changed
Seamstress to a documented form.
RfS.VI.1 states that "In some cases, use of an otherwise
inoffensive occupational surname in a territorial context may
make it appear to be a title or rank." However, the operative
word here is may. We do not feel that Seamstress/Semstress is a
Hywel Gain. Name and device. Counter-ermine, a
Submitted as Hywel Gaines, we have changed the surname to a
Karl von Schattenburg. Badge. [Fieldless] A
A possible conflict was called with Elizabeth Talbot of Meath
(SCA) [Fieldless] A heart Or pierced in saltire by two needles
vert. An inspection of her submission shows that the needles are
indeed large enough to add the necessary difference.
Llwyd Emrys. Name Change from Ambrosius the
Note: Emrys Llwyd would be the translation of his original
Madog of Glastonbury. Name.
Marie Solange Chantal de Sainte Genevieve.
Device. Gyronny argent ermined azure and azure, a caltrop within
a bordure Or.
Moyra MacColla. Name.
Rashiqah Amatulbarri bint Azhar
al-Kahirawayyiah. Name change from Rhianwen ferch
Torcail Gilleghaolain. Device change. Azure,
three bars and in chief three mullets argent.

Angharad Clog Llwyd ferch Madog ap Maredudd.
Bjön Gerhardsö. Name (see RETURNS for
Elspeth Islay of Glen Meara. Badge. Barry wavy
argent and azure, two sea-horses respectant crossed in saltire
While somewhat modern in design, the positions of the bodies of
the seahorses is within our parameters for artistic
Gothen Klansson. Name and device. Or, a saltire
gules between four roundels azure.
Iain of Rannach. Name (see RETURNS for
Isenwulf Hakonson. Name.
Submitted as Isenwulf Hakonsson, we have changed the surname to a
more likely form.
James Malcolm Helme. Device. Argent, on a pile
between two catamounts combattant sable a sword inverted proper
transfixing a skull argent.
Note: this is not four layers since we do not count overall
charges as adding another layer.
Jason the Fletcher. Device. Per bend sable and
vert, on a bend argent an arrow inverted sable, between a sun and
a crescent Or.
Justin of Kent. Device. Argent, three crosses
crosslet sable, on a chief gules a quill pen fesswise Or.
Katerina Isabella di Firenze. Badge. [Fieldless]
On a triskele azure a fleur-de-lys Or.
Kiara Rowland. Device. Azure, two natural
seahorses respectant Or within an orle of crescents
Llawryn ap Gruuffydd ap Cadwaladr. Name and
device. Lozengy azure and Or, a sword inverted argent hilted
overall a wolf's head erased contourny sable.
Submitted as Llawryn ap Gruuffydd ap Cadwalladr, we have
corrected the final name to the proper spelling.
nan Críth Tuatha, Stronghold of. Device.
Argent, a sealion gules within a laurel wreath vert in chief two
lymphads sails furled gules.
Siobhan inghean Meadhbha. Name and device.
Purpure, a semy of amphoras Or, a sea-serpent ondoyant within a
bordure invected argent.
Stagridge, Shire of. Name.
Submitted as Stag Ridge we have combined the two words to make it
into a more period form.
Tamara Borgia. Device. Per pale purpure and
sable, a cat statant contourny argent, a mount barry wavy azure
Tóas Skotakollr. Device. Azure, a lion
statant in chief two mullets, in base a point pointed, all within
a bordure Or.
Normally we do not allow a base and a bordure of the same
tincture, see the return of the device of Isabel of Biconyll, Or,
a beacon sable flamed gules atop a mount vert, a bordure vert
semy of oak leaves Or., 3/94, where Laurel said "The mount has
zero contrast with the bordure, making the base of the device
very confusing visually..." However, since that was not
mentioned in the previous return, and since the submitter
complied with the redraw called for in the return, this is being
registered to the submitter. This does not however permit the use
of a base or chief of the same color as the bordure.
Anke von Annewillere. Name and device. Per fess
wavy sable and vert, in chief a decrescent, a bordure Or.
Byran Ciúnchalaidh. Name (see RETURNS for
Submitted as Byran Ciúnchlaidh, we have corrected the
byname to the proper form. Byran is the submitter's mundane
Chrisegon de la Croix of Ravenswood. Name.
Submitted as Krisegon de la Croix du Montagne of Ravenswood, we
have changed the given name to a documented form. Additionally,
we have removed one of the locatives to make the name more
plausible. Please inform the submitter that the name Chrisegon
was usually feminine in period.
Colin Andrew MacCrimmon. Name.
Dafydd Llantrisant. Name.
Daviti Vignoli. Name.
Submitted as Davito Vignoli, we have corrected the given name to
a documented form.
Donal Blackmere. Name.
Submitted as Donal Blackmear, we have corrected the byname to a
Gregor Vöö . Name and device. Sable, a
Grecian sphynx couchant Or, on a bordure argent, three crescents
Submitted in kingdom as Gregor Vöö, it was reversed and
submitted as Vöö Gregor. Since this is not a wholly
Hungarian name, which would have the surname first, but rather a
Hungarian/German one, we see no reason not to put this into the
form the submitter prefers.
Helena d' vreux. Device. Per fess Or and azure,
a sinister canton azure.
Peter du Gant Noir. Change of device. Per pale
gules and Or, on a gauntlet aversant sable, a cross formy per
pale Or and gules, all within an orle of chain argent.
His current device, "Per pale gules and Or, on a glove aversant
sable, a cross formy per pale Or and gules.", registered 6/88 is
Rachel the Untame. Name and device. Gules, a
chevron and on a chief Or, a lion couchant gules.
Submitted as Rachel the Untamed, we have only been able to find
one example of a period epithet in a participle form. Therefore,
we have corrected the byname to a more likely form.
Rainulf Falconet. Name and device. Per fess
indented argent and azure, a dance fleury at the points
counterchanged and in base a fleur-de-lys argent.
THE FOLLOWING HAVE BEEN RETURNED FOR FURTHER WORK:
Esmerelda de Andalucia. Name.
This is being returned for conflict with Esmeralda la Andaluza.
The armory has been registered under the holding name Esmerelda
of Dun Or.
Tristana de Winter. Name change from Tristana
Raefenloch and badge. [Fieldless] A snowflake azure conjoined
with eight fleurs-de-lys in annulo, points outward, Or.
The name is being returned for being a non-period form. While
the name Winter can be documented as being period, no-one could
document the form de Winter, either for this submission, or in
the submission of Emma de Winter which was returned 9/95. The
submitter will not accept changes, so the name must be
The badge is being returned for non-identifiability. While the
snowflake is grandfathered to the submitter, with the conjoined
fleur-de-lys it loses identifiability.
Tristana de Winter. Household name House de
Winter and badge. [Fieldless] On a snowflake azure a fleur-de-lys
The household name is being returned for being in a non-period
form. No one could document the name with a de. We would not
register House of Smith; though we would register House Smith,
therefore we cannot register House de Winter. The household badge
has been registered under the submitter's registered name,
Aléa Szélvá. Name.
Hungarian practice is to put the given name after the surname,
which practice was not followed here. Without evidence of
Hungarian's using the standard practice of given name surname,
and since the client will not take changes, the submission will
have to be returned.
Furthermore, the documentation on Szélvá comes from
Hanks and Hodges, which is not a reliable source. If the
submitter wishes to use that surname, better documentation will
need to be provided.
Michael Apenteger. Name.
According to the submitter Apenteger means "Collector of the
Bronze Tax". It does not mean that, and no one in the College
could figure out what is did mean or find a way to justify the
surname. Furthermore, we have grave doubts about the likelihood
of such a name having been used.
Wieland Wickram. Device. Azure, on a pale
between two compass stars argent a bird close perched on a
sledgehammer and in base an anvil sable.
This is being returned for slot machine. The bird, the
sledgehammer and the anvil are three dissimilar charges in a
Eibhlí níChaoimh. Device. Per pale
azure and Or, two wyverns erect respectant, conjoined at the
breast, counterchanged, on a chief argent three fleurs-de-lys
As drawn the "wyverns," which lack legs, blur the line between
wyverns and pithons. There was no consensus at the Laurel
meeting as whether these were wyverns or pithons. Therefore this
is being returned for a redraw, to be draw clearly as one or the
Morien MacBan. Device. Pean, on a chalice Or
overflowing with water argent, a cross bottony gules.
As drawn the submission does not look like the exemplar of the
Salter's Guild salt shaker. Therefore, this is being returned for
Heggr Skapti. Device. Azure, in pale a winged
lion rampant and a drakkar Or, sails paly argent and gules.
This is being returned for conflict with Aron Rose of Nairn
(SCA), Azure, a winged lion rampant, between its forepaws a rose
Or. There is a CD for the addition of the ship, but not for the
(effectively) maintained charge.
Elaina de Sinistre. Badge. Azure, on a plate an
apple gules, slipped and leaved proper.
This is being returned for conflict with Rhithyn yr Gwlad yr Hav
(SCA), Azure, a plate charged with a cauldron and a domestic cat
in its curiosity sable, with only one CD for the change in the
Even if there had been no conflict, this would have had to be
returned since we received no forms for this submission.
Kamitatsu (no) Toshimoto. Name appeal.
The submitter appeals the return by Laurel in 9/95 of his name
Kamitatsu Toshimoto, which was returned because Kamitasu was "not
an attested and does not seem to follow any of the period
Japanese surname patterns discussed by Solveig Throndardottir in
Name Construction in Mediæal Japan." He claims that
Kamitatsu would be a viable constructed Japanese name.
Unfortunately, he does not provide any evidence other than
assertion that Kamitatsu follows Japanese name construction.
Lady Solveig Thorondardottir, who Laurel contacted in reference
to this name, is also unable to provide support for this
construction. Therefore, this will have to be returned. Laurel
suggests that the submitter contact Lady Solveig, who would be
glad to help him construct a correct Japanese name.
Bjön Gerhardsö. Device. Per chevron
inverted azure and sable, a chevron inverted argent
This is being returned for conflict Danahild nic Choluim (SCA)
Per chevron inverted azure and sable, a chevron inverted between
a dove volant and three harps argent," and Amber Blackwood (SCA)
"Per chevron inverted azure and sable, a chevron inverted between
an arrow fesswise and three decrescents argent. In both cases
there is but one CD, for the addition of the secondaries.
There appears to be some confusion about the concept of complete
difference of charge. In cases where there would be no chance of
confusing the two primary charges, and the submitted armory is
simple, even though there is only one technical CD, we call the
two submissions clear. For instance, "Gules, a fess Or", versus
"Gules, a lion rampant Or." Technically, there is but one CD,
for the different in type. However, since the fess and the lion
are substantially different, and were considered so in period, we
give complete different in charge, and would call them clear of
Iain of Rannach. Device. Per chevron sable and
argent two mullets Or and a Celtic cross gules.
This is being returned for conflict with the badge of Wulfred von
Templehof (SCA), Per chevron sable and argent, a sun in splendor
Or, a mullet between the horns of a decrescent argent, and a
wingless wyvern passant reguardant gules, breathing flames Or.
Current precedent says this is one group of charges. Since there
is not substantial difference between a mullet/sun, so we cannot
invoke complete difference of charge. Since the change of
tincture is to the object in sinister chief, we cannot invoke the
1/3=1/2 rule for three objects. There is one difference for
changing the cross to a dragon, (or equivalently for changing
2/3rd's of the charges of the group (in base and in sinister
chief)) but that's the only one.
Michael Kellahan. Device. Per chevron sable and
purpure a chevron rompu argent.
This is being returned for conflict with Robyn Akre (SCA), Per
pale counter-ermine and azure a chevron rompu argent. There is
only one CD, for the change in the field.
Sean Andrews. Name.
This was previously submitted as Sean Anderson and was returned
by Laurel 12/95 for conflict with John Anderson. Changing the
name to Sean Andrews does not clear the old conflict.
Furthermore, this is in conflict with a number of John Andrews
cited from Webster's Biographical Dictionary.
Trimaris, Kingdom of. Badge. Per fess argent and
azure, a chevron inverted surmounted by a chevron
This is being returned for nonidentifiability. The chevrons,
because they are of the same tincture where they overlap, make
the badge look like "Per fess argent and azure, in pale the
letter W and the letter M conjoined at the line of division
counterchanged". RfS VII.7.a. requires that "Elements must be
recognizable solely from their appearance." Therefore, this is
Trimaris, Kingdom of. Badge for Order of the
Watchful Flame. Argent, a hanging lantern sable, a candle argent
This is being returned for violation of breaking the rule of
tincture, with an argent candle on an argent field.
Byran Ciúnchlaidh. Device. Azure, on a
saltire argent, a unicorn's head couped wavy gules, a bordure
This is being returned for a redraw. The bordure is way to
small. Additionally, the drawing of the drawing of the unicorn's
head should be corrected; heads should be either couped or
Gregor Vöö. Device. Sable, a Grecian
sphynx couchant Or, on a bordure argent, three crescents
The sphynx as drawn seems halfway between that of an Egyptian and
a Grecian sphynx, and blurs the line between them. This is
therefore being returned for a redraw as one or the
