thought and agonizing to make as the commentary on this
subject was long and learned, and I as Triton had been

Duncan Greifenklau. Name (see RETURNS for
Submitted as Duncan von Greifenklau, we have dropped
the von since Greifenklau is not a place, but rather a

an owl sable and a base rayonny gules.
Submitted as Gau‡elm de Chambonnièes we have
removed the out of period accent marks.

azure and Or, issuant from the line of division a sinister arm
reversed sustaining a sword sable.
Submitted as Julius Aquensis we have changed the
surname to a documented form.
Karin J rgensdotter Eldhierta. Name.
We do not have enough information to state clearly that
Eldhierta would have been a period Swedish byname.
Since there is some information to show it might have
been, we have decided to give the submitter the benefit
of the doubt.

Mylisant Perry. Name and device. Vert, three
pears in pale Or and on a chief argent two holly leaves fesswise

Goselena Upwode of Bamburg. Name.
Submitted as Gauzelen Upwode von Bamberg, which had a
late first millenium CG forename combined with a 16th
century English surname and a German locative byname.
Fortunately, commenters were able to document something
similar to what was submitted as an entirely English
James le Hauke of Stirling. Name and device.
Azure, a bend sinister sable fimbriated Or, overall a falcon
striking to sinister argent.
Submitted as James le Hauke of Stirling Keep, we have
dropped the term keep which was not used in this way
Jankin de Leeuw. Name and device. Purpure, on a
pale between two lions rampant argent, a Latin cross clechy
Kolfinna Fitzsimon. Name (see RETURNS for
Submitted as Coelfinnia Fitzsimon on the LoI, it was
changed from Kolfina in kingdom. We have changed it to
Kolfinna which is an documented Old Norse name and
closer to the submitter's original form.
Rafael Tramontano. Name and device. Per bend
vert and sable, a bend argent between a stag's head caboshed
argent and a garb Or.
Robin Bladesmith of Barnwell. Name.
Shane of Silver lake. Device. Argent, on a

Wilhelm Schatzgeyer. Name (see RETURNS for
Alina von Sternstein. Name.
The surname "von Sternstein" is the registered name of
her husband, and so is grandfathered to her.
Catherine of Devonshire. Name.
Cormac of Peregrine Springs. Holding name and
device (see RETURNS for name). Per pale sable and argent, a skull
affronty within a bordure counterchanged.
The name was submitted as Cormac an Tosk.
Esteban Vicente Manrique de Santiago. Name and

Gregory Ahearne. Name and device. Argent, a
horse rampant contourny sable on a bordure gules an orle of chain
Guillaume de Clare. Name change from William of
His former name William of the Tower is hereby
Jan of Devon. Holding name and device (see
RETURNS for name). Purpure, a pall argent between two dolphins
haurient respectant, in chief a mullet of four points Or.
The name was submitted as Josephine of Devon.
Roxanne O'Malley. Name and device. Quarterly
sable and azure, a wolf's head erased argent between 3 roses Or.
While we do not find this a very likely name, since the
stories of Alexander the Great were so popular during
the middle ages (Alexander was one of the Nine
Worthies), and since there is documented evidence of
taking names from Arthurian, we are giving the
submitter the benefit of the doubt and registering the
Sebastian Blacke. Device. Vert, on a bezant a
Jerusalem cross sable a bordure Or semy-de-lys sable.
Sebastian Halyburton. Badge. [Fieldless] A
griffin segreant contourny quarterly argent and sable.
Stefan Grey of Kent. Device. Per chevron
inverted azure and sable, a chevron inverted between a portcullis
and two goblets argent.
Thomas MacConnor of Ulster. Device. Per saltire
gules and argent, a raven displayed proper, maintaining a quill
pen sable a bordure embattled counterchanged.
Thorkell Óásson. Name and device.
Purpure, on a pile Or a Danish axe gules.
THE FOLLOWING HAVE BEEN RETURNED FOR FURTHER WORK:
Aurelius the Arronious of Bikeleswade. Name
change from Irenaeus of Bikeleswade and device. Sable, a legless
wyvern embowed Or maintaining with its tail a quill argent.
The name is being returned because of the first
nickname, the Arronious. Period nicknames tend
to be straightforward and to use common words:
Thynnewyt "thin [of] wit, stupid", le
Wis "the wise", Badinteheved "bad in the
head", le Wilfulle, le Proude "the
proud", le Hardy "the courageous", le
Sour, le Cursede, le Deuyle "the
devil", Blaksoule "black-soul". The learned
erroneous simply doesn't belong in this
company. Although the adjective in question is not a
past participle, we do not consider this case to be
significantly different from those of Adam the
Unexpected (East, returned 2/96) and Deirdre
the Distracted (Ansteorra, returned 4/94), whose
bynames were returned partly for being too abstract.
Similarly, erroneous is too far from the
common tongue to be at all believable as a period
byname. The submitter did not permit any changes that
would drop the Arronious part, so we have had
to return the name.
Submitted as a pithon, it was the consensus of the
people attending the Laurel meeting as well as being
the opinion of some of the commenters that the monster
was closer in fact to a legless wyvern than a python.
Therefore, this is being for conflict with Caryl de
Trecesson (SCA), Sable, a dragon dormant Or,
with one CD for position.
The feather is not a sustained charge, but a maintained
charge and therefore does not count for difference.
See the cover letter for further discussion of this
Rowan O Moroghoe. Device. Per bend Or and vert,
an acorn inverted slipped and leaved proper and an owl
The nut of the acorn, which was approximately 1/4 of
the charge was done in a shade of brown that if it
appeared on the field by itself we would blazon as Or.
The only reason there was any real contrast with the
field was because the acorn had a black line outlining
it. While we don't worry about contrast with small
items, such as maintained charges, 1/4 of a charge is
too much to ignore. Changing the field to argent would
clear this problem.
Galen of Elvegast. Change of device. Per saltire
azure and Or, a saltire cotised counterchanged.
This is being returned per RFS VIII.3 for excessive
Device. Sable, a catamount passant guardant Or, on a chief argent
three torteaux, overall a bordure counterchanged.
This device is being returned for non period style,
having two problems which necessitate returns. The
first is the charged chief and bordure combination. I
can do no better than to quote Master Bruce as
When a bordure and chief are used together, the chief
almost invariably overlies the bordure (Parker 73).
The rare exceptions generally don't have tertiaries on
the chief; they would be crowded by the bordure,
rendering them harder to identify. The handful of SCA
registrations with bordures surmounting charged chiefs
have subsequently been disallowed as precedent (LoAR of
Oct 91, p.17); far more often, such designs have been
returned as non-period practice. LoAR of December,
1992, pg. 20)
Therefore, this is being returned for non period style
of combining a charged chief with a bordure overlying
the chief. This is also being returned for the
counterchanging of the bordure over the chief. There
have been several previous rulings that state we do not
counterchange bordures over ordinaries.
Andro Bruce. Device. Per chevron sable and Or,
three crosses bottony fitchy counterchanged.
This is being returned for conflict with Ekaterina
Adrianovna Sinilnikovna (SCA), Per chevron sable
and Or, two Maltese crosses and a griffin
counterchanged. There is a CD for changing the
type of each of the three charges, but the change of
cross to cross is not substantial enough to invoke X.2,
and the charges in each case are part of a single
group, so we do not count separate differences for the
charges in chief and those in base.
Caítigern Ainsley. Name change from
This is being returned for combining a fully Gaelic
name with an English name. The issue was raised as to
whether since the name Ainsley was already registered
to her, it was now grandfathered to her. This is a
misunderstanding of the Grandfather Clause. The
Grandfather Clause does not allow the unrestricted use
of an element already registered to someone; see the
extensive discussion in the 12/95 return of Roxanne
Blackfeather (East). For instance, the various
people who have registered armory containing a
lightning flash argent on a colored field cannot
use the Grandfather Clause to justify registering the
badge Or a lightning flash bendwise argent;
that would require breaking a rule not broken in the
registered armory. This lady's registered name,
Gwenhwyvar Ainsley, does not break the
prohibition against combining the incompatible Gaelic
and English orthographies, so it does not give her the
right to break that rule under the Grandfather
The Gaelic masculine name Ceanntighern is
pronounced almost identically (to the English ear) and
was frequently Englished Kentigern in 16th c.
Scotland (Black, s.n. Kentigern);
Kentigern Ainsley would be a very good 16th c.
Scottish name, albeit masculine. Peadar Morgan, s.n.
Caointeorn (a modern Scots Gaelic spelling of
the feminine name), gives Kentigerna as the
Englishing; we don t know whether the feminine name is
actually still in use, but we see no problem with
registering Kentigerna Ainsley as at least a
reasonable hypothetical 16th c. feminine Scottish
Erich von Drachenholz. Device. Per chevron
argent and sable, in chief two dragons segreant coward addorsed
gules, in base a tower argent masoned sable.
This is being returned for conflict with Thomas
Blackkeep (SCA), Per chevron throughout argent and
sable, two pairs of triangles conjoined in pale at the
points gules and a tower argent. This is nothing
for the throughoutness of the field and one CD for
change of type of half of the charges in the primary
Erich von Drachenholz. Badge. Sable, on a tower
argent masoned sable a dragon coward gules, a bordure argent.
This is being returned for conflict with William
FitzBubba, Sable, a chess-rook within a bordure
argent. There is one CD for the addition of the
dragon, but nothing for the difference between a tower
and a chess-rook.
Tanweeristan, Incipient Canton of. Name and
device. Sable, an open scroll argent within a laurel wreath and
in chief a scimitar fesswise Or.
This is being returned for incorrect construction.
Tanweer is not a tribal name, so there is no
reason to think that it can be combined with -
(i)stan. If they wish an Arabic name, we recommend
contacting Master Da'ud, whose name, address and e-mail
are in the roster.
Calontir, Kingdom of. Name and badge for Order
of the Bretwalda. Azure fretty Or, a sword proper.
The name is being returned for several reasons. It is
in violation of RfS III.2.b.ii. Names of Order and
Awards requires that "Names of order and awards must
follow the patterns of the names of period orders and
awards." There is no evidence for a name such as Order
of the Warlord. Furthermore, the name is presumptuous.
Bretwalda does not mean "warlord", The meaning of the
term is "ruler of the Britons" or "ruler of Britain",
so it is a fairly exact Old English parallel to the
Roman dux Brittaniarum and Bede's
Brettonum dux. The term was applied to various
kings who held (or were supposed to have held)
authority over other, lesser kings.
The device is being returned for conflict with Eadric
Hararand (SCA ), Azure, fretty Or, a hare salient
argent. The fret is the primary charge here, so
the only change is the type of the secondary.
Calontir, Kingdom of. Badge for Order of the
Calon Lily. Purpure, a fleur-de-lys a bordure Or.
This is being returned for conflict with Laurencia du
Fond (SCA) Purpure, a fleur-de-lys and a bordure
wavy Or. There is one CD, for the difference is
the line of division on the bordure.
Calontir, Kingdom of. Badge for Order of the
Falcon s Heart. [Fieldless] A falcon close, maintaining a cross
of Calatrava Or.
This is being returned for multiple conflicts with Anne
Gaverel d Avesor (SCA), Sable, a peregrine falcon
close belled and jessed Or, orbed gules, maintaining in
dexter foot a fountain, Sabgia Gunnhild Hunang
(SCA), Gules, a Celtic hawk statant close
reguardant Or, and John of Ravenwolf (SCA),
Sable, a raven speaking Or, beaked and membered
argent. In each case there is but one CD, for the
field (or lack thereof).
Calontir, Kingdom of. Name for Keeper of the
Flame of Calontir.
This is being returned for non-period-style. No one in
the College could find a period exemplar for a name in
Calontir, Kingdom of. Badge. Purpure, on a pale
Or, three hawk's lure purpure.
This is being returned for conflict with Selena d Ambra
(SCA), Purpure, on a pale Or a feather azure.
There is one CD for changes to the tertiaries.
Calontir, Kingdom of. Badge. Per pale argent and
purpure, two cranes in their vigilance counterchanged.
This is being returned for conflict with Arline of
Rycroft (SCA) Per pale argent and purpure, two owls
close respecting each other counterchanged. There
is a CD for the difference in type between owls and
cranes, but not substantial difference between the
types of birds as required by RfS X.2.
Connar Mac Lean. Name.
Returned for conflict with Conor MacLean and Connor
MacLean (two separate SCA registrations). The device
was registered under the holding name Connor of Drei
Duncan Greifenklau. Device. Per bend azure and
gules, an eagle's foot argent.
This is being returned for conflict with the badge of
Damianus Petrolino (SCA), [Fieldless] A dragon's
jamb erased inverted clutching a roundel argent.
There is one CD for fieldlessness, but that is it.
Both emblazon showed approximately the same amount of
claw and leg, and they looked quite similar in type.
Olav Henriksson. Device. Or, a griffin azure.
This is being returned for conflict with Diana Alene
(SCA), Or, a griffin segreant azure, drawing a bow
vert, in chief an increscent argent fimbriated
sable. There is one CD for the addition of the
Elwisia Mouche de Voujeaucourt. Device. Argent,
a pall vert between a dexter wing and a sinister wing sable, a
chief triangular checky sable and argent.
This device engendered a lot of discussion. While
blazoned as above on the LoI, it was not a properly
drawn chief triangular. As drawn, it is really Per
pall checky sable and argent, argent and argent, a pall
vert between a dexter wing and a sinister wing
sable, which is not period style.
Eirír Tryggvason. Badge. [Fieldless] On a
mullet of seven points sable a decrescent gules fimbriated
This is being returned for several reasons.First, this
design is essentially "(Fieldless) A mullet of seven
points sable charged with a decrescent argent charged
with a decrescent gules.", which means it uses a
quaternary charge, which is disallowed by RfS
VIII.1.c.ii (Layer Limit). Fieldlessness has always
been held to "count" as one of the layers (see, for
example, the return of Carlo della Casa "(Fieldless) On
a sun Or eclipsed quarterly vert and azure, a fleur-de-
lys Or" 9/95), and we have been treating fimbriation as
"an X charged with another" since Bruce's tenure.
Additionally the fimbriation is probably also a
problem. According to RfS VIII.3 "Voiding and
fimbriation may only be used with simple geometric
charges placed in the center of the design." This does
not apply to tertiary charges. Lastly, this conflicts
with the tinctureless badge of Astra Christiana
Benedict: "On a mullet a cross crosslet." There is no
CD for type only, nor for type + tincture since Astra's
badge is tinctureless. There is nothing for type of
mullet: on the LoAR of 6/90 p. 3 Laurel wrote "No
difference can be granted for the difference between
standard mullets and mullets of seven points." This
leaves only the one CD for the field.
Malachi of East River. Device. Quarterly Or and
vert, in bend an anvil and a hammer sable.
This is being returned for violation of RfS XI.3.b,
which requires all charged sections of a quartered
field to bear the same charge. This is done to avoid
the appearance of marshalled arms.
Owain Grindal. Device. Per bend sinister sable
and argent, a Latin cross formy, a bordure gules.
This is being returned for a redraw. The bordure is
way too thin.
Kolfinna Fitzsimon. Device. Sable, three peonies
in bend Or, slipped vert, between two bendlets argent
This is being returned for a redraw. The flowers are
drawn in trian aspect. They need to be either a full
top or full side view. Additionally, these are not
heraldic slips or leaves. As drawn it detracts from
their identifiability as flowers.
Kou no Ryuukyuuro Toshikage. Name.
According to the LoI, Ryuukyuuro is found in Compleat
Anachronist #66. Copies of the page with the name were
not included, and none of the commenters was able to
find it there. Therefore, we have no choice but to
return this for lack of documentation.
Cormac an Tosk. Name.
The LoI states that Tosk is the Gaelic word for tusk.
No documentation was found to support that spelling.
Dwelly gives tosg. 'tusk' but this is almost
certainly a borrowing from English, and is probably
modern. The early Irish for "tooth" is
fícail. However, we thought that this was
too big a change to make without the submitter's
consent. The device was registered under the holding
name Cormac of Peregrine Springs.
John Blackwood. Name and device. Per fess
argent and sable, in pale a cross formy and a lymphad sails
furled contourny counterchanged.
The name is being returned for conflict with the
registered name John of Blackwood. We are returning
the device because the cross is not blazonable. It is
not a cross formy and no one at the Laurel meeting
could come up with a term to describe it.
Josephine of Devon. Name.
The kingdom was unable to provide documentation for
Josephine as a period name, nor could any member of the
College of Arms. The device was registered under the
holding name Jan of Devon.
nan Crìth Tuatha, Stronghold of. Badge.
Argent, a sealion gules.
This is being returned for conflict with Rory Blackhand
(SCA) Argent a sea-lion reguardant gules within an
orle of hands sable., with one CD for the addition
of the orle, and with Ivar Krigsvin (SCA) "Checky
sable and argent, a sealion erect gules., with one
CD for the difference in the field.
Rolf von Sternstein. Device. Argent, on a mug
embattled to chief vert a mullet of six points Or.
This is being returned for several reasons. First and
foremost for non-period style: Heraldry is the art of
identification, and as drawn this charge blurs the line
between a mug and a tower. Secondly, since this is
halfway between a mug and a tower it conflicts with
both. It is in conflict with Ceridwen Dafydd (SCA)
