Catalina Alvarez. Device. Per fess purpure and argent, a comet fesswise argent and on a cauldron sable an escallop Or.
Dorinda Courtenay. Badge. Vert, a Latin cross bottony a bordure argent.
Gabriele of Kendel. Name.
Giulietta da Venezia. Badge. (Fieldless) A heart inverted purpure.
We do not normally register fieldless badges consisting only of forms of armorial display, such as roundels, lozenges and delfs in plain tinctures, since in use the shape does not appear to be a charge, but rather the field itself. A heart can be a such display of armory. However, since this a heart inverted, we are willing to register it, since the inversion will make it look like a charge, and not a display of a single tincture.
Gwyneth de Grey. Device. Purpure, on a fess dovetailed between two pegasi passant reguardant argent, three roses gules.
Hans der Grau. Device. Argent, a Latin cross flory azure, a bordure paly bendy sinister azure and Or.

Ludwig von Strassburg. Name.
Sigenoth the Blissful. Badge. Per pale sable and vert, a Latin cross bottony argent.
Sigenoth the Blissful. Household name and badge for Maison de la Croix Blanche. Quarterly sable and vert, a cross bottony argent.
The household name was submitted as Maison de la Croix Blanc. Since Croix is a feminine noun, blanc must agree in gender. We have made the necessary change.
Aodh Deoradhan. Badge. (Fieldless) A comet palewise sable bearded vert the estoile charged with an uncial lowercase "a" Or.
Anne von Schneverdingen. Device. Per pall inverted vert, azure and lozengy Or and azure, in chief two willow trees Or.

Esugenas maqqas Moridaci avvi Cremutanni. Name and device. Per fess Or and gules, in pale three bulbs of garlic counterchanged purpure and argent.
Some questions were raised about the suitability of registering this name, since it is a proto-Irish name. However, this name is contemporaneous with Romano-British names which we register. Furthermore, proto-Irish bears the same relationship to medieval Irish as late Latin does to the Romance languages. Both are only one step removed from their medieval counterparts, as opposed to, Pharaonic Egyptian, which we do not register.
Hlutwige Wolfkiller. Device change. Per pale Or and vert, on a roundel per pale embowed counterembowed vert and Or, two scorpions in annulo counterchanged and in chief a ducal coronet gules.

Please instruct the submitter to draw the roundel with fewer traits.
Annabel Kincaid. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Borek Vitalievich Volkov. Device. Azure, a wolf rampant argent, overall a dance Or.
This is clear of Robina Wyclif (SCA) Azure, a wolf rampant argent maintaining a spear Or flying to sinister a pennoncelle gules, fimbriated, all within a bordure Or., with one CD for the removal of the bordure, and a second for the addition of the overall charge. While it is true that there is only one CD for changing the type of any secondary charge, including peripherals, that is because all secondaries are dealt with from the same section of the rules X.4.b. and overall charges are dealt with in X.4.c.
Colin Severne. Device. Or, a pall inverted sable between two peacocks close respectant proper and a spider inverted sable marked Or.
Diana of Viroconium. Name.
The question was raised as to whether this name was temporally compatible. However, since Morlet's Les noms de personnes, II, p. 41 cites a rare but early instance of Dina occurring in a Christian context, there is no issue.
Dietrich Kempenich von Eltz. Name and device. Vert, a stag rampant ermine collared, dependent from the collar a sun gules.
Ebergardis von Zell. Name and device. Vert, a seeblatt Or a bordure ermine.

Brian O'Leary. Name.
Brownwyn Morgan the Embroiderer. Name.
Connor Blackthorne. Name.
Submitted as Connor Blackthorne the Gryphon., the byname falls afoul of RfS VI.2., "Names Claiming Powers. Names containing elements that allude to powers that the submitter does not possess are considered presumptuous. Society names may not claim divine descent, superhuman abilities, or other powers that the submitter does not actually possess." Unless he can prove he is a gryphon he may not claim to be one. We have dropped the byname in order to register the rest of the name.
Deodericus of Huntington. Name and device. Per pale gules and azure, an anchor and on a chief invected Or three seahorses erect gules.
Submitted as Dederick of Huntington, no evidence was presented and none could be found for Dederick as a period given name. We have substituted the closed period form. Please instruct the submitter to draw the invecting bolder.

Fergus Andrew MacGillreick. Name.

Gerard le Bon. Name.
Jehane Wulfeken. Name and device. Per chevron vert and sable, a chevron rompu between two wolves heads respectant erased and a sheaf of spears Or.
Julien de Nevelet. Name and device. Argent semy-de-lys, a fox sejant and a bordure dovetailed azure.
Moira of the Meadows. Name.
Submitted as Moyra of the Meadows, Moyra is an undocumented variant spelling of the Anglicized spelling of the Gaelic equivalent of Mary. Since the Gaelic form of Mary was a rare usage during our period, we do not feel that the Anglicized form was used enough to form variant spellings.
Aidan MacEgan. Name.
Aislinn ni Chearbhaill. Name and device. Gules, on a fess argent between three increscents Or, a catamount passant sable.
Submitted as Aisling Ni O Cearbhaill, this name has two problems. First, Asling is an Anglicized form of Aislinn. Since we do not mix English and Gaelic orthographies, we have changed the given name to Aislinn. Second, the patronymic was incorrectly put into the genitive. We have corrected this.
Alasdair Mac Roibeirt. Name and device. Per saltire argent and vert, two smith's hammers reversed sable and two massacres argent.
Submitted as Alasdair Mac Robert, this name combines Gaelic and English orthography in one name. We have put the patronymic entirely into Gaelic.
Alexandra del Monte di Pieta. Badge. Sable, a cross crosslet fitchy azure fimbriated argent, between flaunches ermine.
She has a letter to conflict with the badge of Steffan yr Ysgolhaig (SCA) Sable, a cross crosslet fitchy azure, fimbriated argent. Since he is her husband, she can use the fimbriated cross, courtesy of the grandfather clause. The question was raised as to whom the grandfather clause covers. The grandfather clause extends to the submitters themselves and their immediate legal family (spouse, siblings, children (including their spouses), parents, grandparents and grandchildren).
Angelica Blauschild. Name.
Atenveldt, Kingdom of. Ensign. Per fess azure and argent, in canton a sun Or.
This is being reblazoned from Per fess azure and argent, in canton a sun in his splendor., to make the tincture of the sun explicit.
Czendes Sadany. Name.
Submitted as Csendes Zsádany, neither element uses a period spelling. Csendes is dated 1693 and "ZS" is only used in modern spellings. We have corrected these to the closest period forms.
Gabriela Juliana de Bordeaux. Name.
Hernando Herodes Montenegro de Mondragon. Alternate name Tatsuyama Kawahide (see RETURNS for badge).
Ilaria Allegri Carreto. Name and device. Argent, two arrows in saltire inverted gules between four card piques sable.

Raibeart MacLeoid. Name and device. Per fess embattled sable and Or, two sunbursts Or, clouded argent, and a bull's head cabossed sable.
Submitted as Raibeart McLeoid, the correct form of McLeoid is MacLeoid. We have corrected this as the submitter allows.
Raibeart MacLeoid the Younger. Name and device. Per fess embattled sable and Or, two sunbursts Or, clouded argent, and a bull's head cabossed sable, between its horns a label gules.
Submitted as Raibeart McLeoid the Younger, the correct form of McLeoid is MacLeoid. We have corrected this as the submitter allows. While this name mixes English and Gaelic orthography, he can use the English form of the Younger courtesy of the lingua Anglica allowance. He has written permission for his device to conflict with his father Raibeart MacLeoid and his brother Seamus MacLeoid.
Seamus MacLeoid. Name and device. Per fess embattled sable and Or, two sunbursts Or, clouded argent, and a bull's head cabossed sable, between its horns a decrescent gules.
Submitted as Seamus McLeoid, the correct form of McLeoid is MacLeoid. We have corrected this as the submitter allows. Note: this is clear of the registered name Jamie MacLeod, because of the difference in pronunciation of the English versus Gaelic patronymics. He has written permission for his device to conflict with his father Raibeart MacLeoid and his brother Raibeart MacLeoid the Younger.
Sean Cullin Redhawk. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Thomas Towlewardie. Device. Quarterly purpure and sable, a tree blasted the trunk surmounted by an arrow fesswise reversed Or.
This does not conflict with Huette Aliza von und zu Ahrens und Mechthildberg (SCA) Vert, a tree blasted throughout Or. There are CDs for the change to the field and the addition of the overall charge.
Twin Moons, Barony of. Order name l'Order du Coeur d'Ambre.
The order name is French for Order of the Amber Heart. It is conceivable that a period order could have as its token a heart made from amber.
Viviana Eucheria l'Indomabile. Device. Argent, a butterfly and a bordure sable.
Wynne MacGillbride. Name and device. Per bend sinister nebuly purpure and vert, two trefoils slipped argent.
Submitted as Wynne GilleBrighde, in medieval and later records, Welsh given names and surnames beginning with "Gw-" are frequently recorded with simply "W-" instead, particularly in English-context records. (Since Welsh names would not normally begin in "W-" and since English names beginning with "W-" were taken into Welsh with "Gw-" we can assume that people at that time viewed the difference as one of "accent" rather than substance.) Morgan & Morgan (p.117) has examples of "Gwynne" in the 16th c. and "Wynne" in the early 17th c., although these are all of bynames and/or surnames. However the given name was still in use then and should have been pronounced (and hence, spelled) in similar ways. While Wynne is registerable, it is unmistakably a masculine name, and registerable only as one. But since there seem to be no immediate problems of internal gender-consistency in the name, it is not technically necessary to substitute the feminine "Gwen" (or variants thereof, including "Wenne") to register it. However, there are problems with the byname. The most immediate problem with the byname is that it follows Irish spelling conventions, for which there is no period evidence of combination with English spelling conventions. (we say "English"rather than "Welsh" because "Wynne" follows English spelling.) There is nothing at all implausible about combining a Welsh given name with an Irish surname -- the 14th c. Ormond account records from an English estate in Ireland note examples such as "Carrek McGriffyn". So one possibility would be to postulate a Hiberno-Welsh man and put the byname (with or without a "mac", since these were sometimes omitted in English records) into an Anglicized form, such as "(Mac)Gillbride" (see Woulfe p.368 for late-period Anglicizations "M'Gillebridy", "M'Gillvrid", "M'Killbridy", "M'Elvride").
Since she is primarily interested in the "servant of Bride" meaning, there is another angle to take. In the medieval period, the Welsh seem to have adopted the Irish style of devotional names in translation. So in the Merioneth Lay Subsidy Roll of 1292, for example, we find the given names (most likely masculine, although there is no direct evidence for this in some cases): "Waskeyn" (Gwas Cein), "Wasdewy" (Gwas Dewi), "Wasmyhangel" (Gwas Myhangel) etc., where "gwas" (lad, servant) is undoubtedly a functional translation of Irish "giolla". Morgan & Morgan (p.108) lists examples based on St. Brighid, although in this case (and no other, including devotional names based on Mary) the element "sant" (saint) is incorporated in all cases: "Gwassanfrait" (15th c.), "Wassamfret" (medieval -- no explicit date). So if she wants an entirely Welsh name based on a name with the meaning "servant of Saint Brighid" then something along the lines of "Wynne (ap) Gwassanfrait" would be reasonable for late period. We have registered it as Wynne MacGillbride, as the closest form to what was originally submitted.
Yrsa Gudrunardottir. Name change from Alyssa Rose MacGregor.
Submitted as Yrsa Gudrunsdottir the patronymic was incorrectly put into the genitive. We have corrected this problem.

"....clear of Geoffrey de Blenkinsopp (SCA), Checky sable and argent, a saltire parted and fretted Or. There is a CVD for the field, and we can see another for the difference between two laths on each diagonal and three."
The same holds true in this case.
Aran Darkhelm. Badge. Gules, a crutch argent.
This is clear of Ammalynne Sternjekrakki Haraldsdottir's badge for House of the Broken Crutch Gules, a crutch fracted, the chief piece bendwise Or., with one CD for change of the color of the crutch and one for the fracting.

Cerian Dafydd. Name and device. Gules, a comet fesswise Or and a trimount argent.
Found in the LoI as Cerian ferch Dafydd, it was originally submitted without the ferch. It was added in kingdom since they were not aware of Welsh using unmarked patronymics. Since Welsh does in fact use unmarked patronymics we are removing the ferch and restoring the name to the form originally submitted.
Eilidh na Tire Dharigh. Name and device. Or, three oak leaves conjoined in pall and on a chief vert three acorns Or.
Submitted as Eilidh na Tir Dharach, the closest correct form is Eilidh na Tire Dharigh. We have corrected this as the submitter allows.

Meanwhile, the device (Or, two chevronels vert, in base a Tau cross, a bordure indented sable.) was send out of kingdom and accidentally registered on the December 1997 letter. This registration of the name corrects everything and gives the submitter a registered name and device.
Robert John of Cedar Wood. Name and device. Per chevron Or and sable, two palm fronds palewise vert and a sun Or.
Submited as Robert John of CedarWood, intercapitalization is not a period spelling custom. We have made the locative two words to keep the capitalization which is important to the submitter.

Rose Marie von Saarbrücken. Name and device. Pean, a sun issuant from base Or.

Submitted as Henry an Eynhallow, the only documentation presented for Eynhallow was from a website that was not the official Laurel web site. Knowing nothing about this site and its reliability, it is not an acceptable source of documentation. However, Johnston's Place-Names of Scotland, pg 173, has Enhallow as the header spelling. We have substituted this spelling as the submitter allows.

Aleruna Olgersdotter. Name and device. Argent, on a bend gules between a butterfly bendwise sinister and an ash tree eradicated sable, an arrow argent.
Submitted as Aleruna Olgersdattir, the proper form of the patronymic that goes with the rest of the name is dotter. Since the submitter wants as authentic name as possible we have changed the spelling. Note: evidence was presented for Aleruna as a 12th century female name.

Submitted as Dairine ingen Domnaill, the patronymic was not correctly put into the genitive. We have corrected this as the submitter allows.

SOCIETY FOR CREATIVE ANACHRONISM
Alberta. Important non-SCA arms. Vert, three garbs in fess and on a chief Or a lion passant guardant gules.
British Columbia. Important non-SCA arms. Barry wavy argent and azure, issuant from base a demi sun Or on a chief the Union Jack augmented with a coronet Or.
Lacy. Important non-SCA badge. (Tinctureless) A Lacy knot.
The Lacy knot is known only because of its use as the badge of the Lacy family, and is known uniquely by the name of that family. Such a well known badge which defines the charge is important enough to deserve protection.
Manitoba. Important non-SCA arms. Vert, a bison statant atop a mount issuant from base proper and on a chief Or a lion passant guardant gules.
New Brunswick. Important non-SCA arms. Or, issuant from a base wavy barry wavy azure and argent a lymphad proper flagged and on a chief gules a lion passant guardant Or.
Newfoundland. Important non-SCA arms. Gules, a cross argent between in bend two lions passant guardant crowned Or in bend sinister two unicorns passant proper gorged of a coronet dancetty dependent therefrom a chain Or.
Northwest Territories. Important non-SCA arms. Per bend wavy gules and vert billety Or, in dexter chief an Arctic fox’s mask and on a chief indented argent a barrulet wavy azure.
Nova Scotia. Important non-SCA arms. Argent, a saltire azure overall an escutcheon charged with the Royal Arms of Scotland.
Ontario. Important non-SCA arms. Vert, a sprig of three maple leaves slipped Or on a chief argent a cross gules.
Prince Edward Island. Important non-SCA arms. Argent, issuant from an island vert a hurst of oak trees proper and on a chief gules a lion passant guardant Or.
Quebec. Important non-SCA arms. Per fess azure and Or, on a fess between three fleurs-de-lys Or and a sprig of three maple leaves slipped vert a lion passant guardant Or.
Saskatchewan. Important non-SCA arms. Vert, three garbs in fess and on a chief Or a lion passant guardant gules.
Yukon Territories. Important non-SCA arms. Azure, two pallets wavy argent between two piles inverted gules fimbriated argent each charged with two bezants and on a chief argent a cross gules overall a roundel vair.
THE FOLLOWING HAVE BEEN RETURNED FOR FURTHER WORK:
Angelique de Beauvais. Device. Per pale sable and azure, a lion rampant shackled and on one rear paw maintaining an arrow Or atop a rock argent.
This conflicts with Bulgaria Gules, a lion rampant crowned Or., Belgium Sable, a lion rampant Or, and the Palatinate of the Rhine Sable, a lion rampant Or crowned gules. In each case there is a CD for the field but nothing for the chain and arrow. Whether or not the rock counts for difference appears to come down to the same distinction we look for between "maintaining" and "sustaining"; whether or not the "maintained" charge, were it separated from the charge maintaining it, be considered a co-primary. ("Either sustaining or supporting will be used when a "held' charge is of comparable size to the beast holding it; maintaining will continue to be used when the held charge is of negligible heraldic difference." [Bruce Draconarius of Mistholme, LoAR July 1992, p. 6]). The rock in this case is not large enough to be considered sustained and thereby a co-primary, so we are returning this for conflict.
Ataias Eleutherios. Name and device. Argent, atop a stag lodged proper, a wolf statant ravessant sable.
This is being returned for lack of documentation. Ataias is asserted to be a Greek form of the Scythian name Ateas. However, the documentation for Ataias comes from a Greek coin which bears the name Ataias. However, Greek coinage and coins from lands using the Greeks as models (i.e., using Greek styles and Greek for its inscriptions) generally used the genitive case to denote the ruler or other entity issuing the coinage. The form of the given name on the coin as noted would be a standard genitive form for a first declension Greek noun. This could be a woman’s name or, more likely, a geographic locative (and city states like Athens or Gela did use the name of the city rather than of a ruler on their coinage. Without documentation showing this to be an actual period name we must return it. The armory is being returned for non-reproduciblity. As drawn the wolf is significantly smaller than the deer. But, in every case we could find, the animal preying upon, ravissant or vorant of something was at least the same size as the creature is was attacking, if not significantly larger.
Gabriel Mousebane. Name.
This is being returned for non period style. According to the LoI, Mousebane is the Anglicization of the hypothetical Norse epithet meaning "mouse leg". However, no examples of "-leg" epithets showing this pattern were presented. Furthermore, on the LoAR of August 1997 Laurel said "
Bynames of the form X-bane don't seem to have been used in our period, though it's just possible that the ON cognate bani was so used. In ON one could construct ufsbani, meaning either 'wolf's killer' or 'Ulf's killer', but this doesn't justify Wolfbane."
Barring evidence that names of this sort were used in period, this must be returned.
Robert MacArthur. Name and device. Per pale azure and gules two dolphins haurient respectant and in chief three roundels argent.
This conflicts with the already registered Raibert MacArthur. The armory is being returned for not using correct heraldic tinctures. The gules used was not red, but pink.
Wealdsmere, Barony of. Badge for the Order of the Golden Acorn. Azure, three acorns conjoined at the stems in pall inverted Or within an orle of eight oak leaves in annulo argent.
This is being returned for violating the rule of tincture. The oak leaves are not argent, but sable marked argent. Sable leaves on an azure field violate the rule of tincture.
Wittanhaven, College of. Badge. (Fieldless) An open scroll argent charged with a pine tree eradicated vert.
This conflicts with Stonemarche, Barony of (Fieldless) An open scroll argent fretty vert. The fretty is a charge equivalent to a single fret and the scroll has an outline complex enough that it does not qualify under RFS X.4.j.ii.
Annabel Kincaid. Device. Per pale purpure and gules, a weaver's knot argent.
This conflicts with Bourchier (Tinctureless) A Bourchier knot. There is not enough visual distinction between having the lower ends crossed (weaver’s) and having them knotted (Bourchier) to be worth a CD. Since the weaver’s knot was not used in mundane heraldry, there is also no period heraldic distinction on which to base a CD.
Gunther the Just. Device. Gules, a double-bitted axe inverted and balanced on its haft a set of scales Or.
This conflicts with Elena Anatolievna Pavlova (SCA) (Fieldless) A standing balance Or., with one CD for the field.
Rivertree, Shire of. Name and device. Argent, a chevron wavy azure between two oaks proper and a laurel wreath vert.;
This was an appeal of the kingdom return of the name. While the group has tried to document this name, they have not been able to provide sufficient evidence for this kind of construction. River is not generally found as an element in English place-names. It's a French word which wasn't used in English until after the Norman Conquest. River is used as a descriptive word (so that we have River Thames, Avon River, and so on) but there are no examples of places which are called Thamesriver or Avonriver. River isn't the sort of element that was normally used to modify Old English treow tree. River certainly does not describe the tree itself in the way that words meaning grey, fair, multi-colored, long, and red do. It isn't a number word. It isn't a word used to designate a person, like words meaning bishop and churl.
It is true that certain types of personal names were used in this way, but these were Old English forenames, probably the name of the local hundred-man or law-man of the assembly. (This is especially likely to be true in the case of names of hundreds.) Rivere could in fact be the locative surname (from a place in France) of a post-Conquest landholder, and such names do appear as affixes, as in Newton Reigny--held by William de Reigny in 1185 --but that's a usage quite different from the one under consideration here. Still, it could be used to justify a name with the desired elements. Ekwall has Treeton in Yorkshire West Riding (Treton 1204). Reaney & Wilson s. n. Rivers have Gozelinus Riueire or Riuere in Domesday Book and Walter de la Rivere c. 1150. That is sufficient to justify Treton Rivere as a medieval English place-name if the group wishes that form. Since we do not form holding names for groups, the armory must be returned as well.
Yasha Ivanovich Romanoff. Name and device. Argent, a double-headed eagle displayed gules maintaining in each claw an egg, charged on the breast with an Orthodox cross Or, in chief a beribboned egg gules charged with a mullet of eight points Or.
The name is being returned for violating VI.3 of the rules - Names Claiming Specific Relationships.
Names that unmistakably imply identity with or close relationship to a protected person or literary character will generally not be registered.
Explicit claims to descend from a particular person, such as Edwin fitzWilliam Marshall or Rhys ap Cariadoc of the Bow will not be registered.
Since both Ivan V and Ivan VI of Russia were Romanovs, Yasha Ivanovich Romanoff is a claim to being either one's son and forbidden by our rules.
In a similar instance, Master Bruce as Laurel said:
[Juan Sanchez Ramirez] The name also infringes on Sancho I Ramirez, King of Aragon in 1063 and of Navarre in 1066 (Louda & Maclagan, Heraldry of the Royal Families of Europe, table 45). Sanchez is the patronymic form of Sancho (being the genitive case; it means literally ``of Sancho''), so the name is a claim of descent, prohibited under Rule V.5. (Juan Sanchez Ramirez, September, 1992, pg. 45).
The armory is being for violating our rules on style. The beribboned egg is unidentifiable and unreproducible. Furthermore, we have not allowed ribbons as charges for several years.
The issue of presumptuousness was raised in regards to the entire submission. It is our opinion that if the name was registerable the entire submission would violate XI.2. Presumptuous Armory. The rule states:
Charge and Name Combination - Armory that asserts a strong claim of identity in the context of the submitter's name is considered presumptuous.
Some otherwise permissible names and armorial elements cannot be used together because joining the two creates too strong an association with famous individuals from myth, literature, or history. For example, while Rhiannon can be used as a given name, and horses can be used as charges, the two cannot be used together as it suggests the Rhiannon of Welsh myth. Similarly, charges that merely allude to a specific name on their own may become presumptuous if several such charges are used.
The problem here is not any one charge, but the combination of everything. The name, the eagle, the cross and the egg push this submission over the edge.
Edmund de Port. Name.
This is being returned for lack of paperwork.
Eochaid of Tesedale. Name.
This is being returned for mixing English and Gaelic orthography in the same name, which has been disallowed for at least the last four years.
According to the LoI -a-tout-Fiare, means Jack of all trades. However, the preposition in the idiom is faire not fiare. More importantly, no evidence was provided for this sort of idiomatic phase being used as a byname in period French. Without such evidence we cannot register the name. Finally, the hyphens need to go away, at least between the given name and the epithetic phrase.
Hernando Herodes Montenegro de Mondragon. Badge. (Fieldless) Three grappling irons of four flukes in pall, conjoined at the ring, argent.
This is being returned for being intrusively modern. It is too close to the modern biohazard symbol. The resemblance is made stronger by the fact that the regulations for the biohazard symbol, included in the documentation state: "Required labels and signs shall include the international biohazard symbol and the word "biohazard." Label color must be predominantly orange or orange-red with lettering and symbol in a contrasting color." Therefore, the most commonly used color for the symbol is white.
Katlin von Kappel and Theoland Grimulf. Badge. (Fieldless) On a heart per pales gules and sable, a wyvern displayed Or.
This conflicts with Dragon’s Laire, Barony of Per pale Gules and Sable a two headed dragon displayed Or grasping in dexter forepaw a laurel wreath Vert and in sinister forepaw a moneybag Gules. Since a heart is a recognized form of heraldic display, Katlin’s badge is effectively a shield with a charge that has no CD’s from Dragon’s Laire’s shield with a similar monster. There is nothing for the difference between two versus one head, nor for the maintained laurel wreath or money bag.
Margaret Raedwulf. Device. Argent, a wolf's head erased gules, a bordure dovetailed sable.
This conflicts with Yllaria of Wildewode Argent, a wolf’s head erased gules, a bordure dovetailed sable.
Otto Blauschild. Device. Azure, a fret argent.
This conflicts with Annora Margery FitzJames (SCA) Azure fretty argent, a weaver’s shuttle palewise Or, threaded vert., and with Meredudd Brangwyn (SCA) Per saltire gules and pean, a fret argent. In the first case, fretty is considered both equivalent to a fret and the primary charge in the design, leaving just one CD for adding the overall charge. In the second, there is just one CD for the field.
Sean Cullin Redhawk. Device. Quarterly argent and sable, in saltire a sword inverted bendwise sinister proper and an eagle's talon bendwise, clasping a roundel gules.
This is being returned for violation our rule on slot machine, three different charges in the same charge group. If a charge is sustaining another it is considered two different charges in the same group, unlike a maintained charge. Furthermore, there are some identifiability problems with the talon and the roundel in the same in tincture.
Adam of Erin. Badge. (Fieldless) A Celtic cross argent.
This conflicts with Gormflait Suiban ni Cuallachta (SCA) Gyronny Or and azure, a Celtic cross argent, fimbriated sable., with just one CD for the field.
Henri La Grave. Device. Azure, a comet bendwise between six estoiles argent.
This technically conflicts with Genevra of Estolat (SCA) Azure estoilly, a sun argent. There is no CD for the change from six to many, and while there is a CD between a comet and a sun the difference is not substantial.
Robert de Clifton. Device. Azure, a chevron between two trefoils and a garb argent.
This conflicts with Beorn Collenferth (SCA) Azure, a chevron between a harp, an axe reversed and a sabre-toothed tiger statant argent., and Angela of the Stoney Oak Forest (SCA) Azure, a chevron between two acorns and an oak leaf argent. In each case there is just one CD for changing the type of all of the single group of secondary charges.
Stephan of Churchton. Device. Azure, a chevron ensigned with a Latin cross between three annulets engrailed on the outer edge Or.
This is being returned for a redraw. The cross needs to be about one half the size it is and the annulets need to be thicker, so it is more obvious what they are.
William le Red of Storvik. Device. Per pale argent and gules, a three headed python displayed affronty counterchanged.
This is visually in conflict with David FitzJames le Rouge (SCA) Per pale argent and gules, a bat-winged tower counterchanged. In both cases what you see is the counterchanged wings, with the tall slender central figure being absorbed into the background.
Alane of Ellerslie. Device. Sable, a lacy knot Or.
This conflicts with the badge of the Lacy family, (Tinctureless) A Lacy knot., protected on this LoAR. There is one CD for tincturelessness.
Alane of Ellerslie. Badge. (Fieldless) A lacy knot Or.
This conflicts with the badge of the Lacy family, (Tinctureless) A Lacy knot., protected on this LoAR. There is one CD for tincturelessness.
Albyn Buckthorne. Badge. (Fieldless) A pale within and conjoined to an annulet embattled on the inner edge sable.
This is being returned for unidentifiability. Members of the College had severe problems in trying to decipher what the charge was.
Altavia, Barony of. Name for The Order of the Argent Pearl.
Since September 1994 we have been returned the use of argent as an adjective referring to color. It was last returned in September 1997. Barring period evidence of its use in English as an adjective we must return this as well.
Caterine Barré de Venoix. Device. Barry azure and Or, a Catherine's wheel gules.
This conflicts with Iathus of Scara (SCA) Ermine, a cog wheel gules., with just one CD for the field. On the October 1995 LoAR (Fieldless) A Catherine's wheel gules. was returned for conflict against Iathus.
Gaston Yvain De Dinan. Device. Paly sable and argent, on a bend Or a wolf's head ululant bendwise erased gules between two Maltese crosses palewise sable.
This is technically in conflict with David of Moorland (SCA) Vert, on a bend Or three Moor's heads couped sable. There is a CD for the field. Gaston's device is not a simple case, so there cannot be a CD for changing the types, and changing the tincture of the middle of three charges is insufficient to generate the second difference.
Ioanna Rudrig. Device. Or, three willow branches conjoined inverted proper.
This conflcits with Jessica of the Willows (SCA) Or, a weeping willow tree eradicated (Salix babylonica) proper, in chief an escallop purpure., and Katerine of Willowmere (SCA) Or, a willow proper and a base wavy azure. In both cases there is one CD for the addition of the secondary. However, in the case of a weeping willow tree, the trunk carries relatively little weight and does not provide the required additional difference.
Morgaine FitzStephen. Name for Chateau Corbeau.
The name conflicts with the Barony of Mountain Freehold's "The Order of the Corbie". Corbie and Corbeau sound too much alike.
Albrecht von Salzburg. Device. Azure a chevron between three vols argent.
This conflicts with Beorn Collenferth (SCA) Azure, a chevron between a harp, an axe reversed and a sabre-toothed tiger statant argent., and Angela of the Stoney Oak Forest (SCA) Azure, a chevron between two acorns and an oak leaf argent. In each case there is just one CD for changing the type of all of the single group of secondary charges.
Jacopa Della Bella. Device. Vert, on bend sinister engrailed argent, a strawberry proper.
This conflicts with Owen ap Morgan (SCA) Vert, on a bend sinister engrailed argent, three oak leaves vert. Changes to a single group of tertiaries cannot yield more than one CD.
Lois an der Baumhecke. Device. Per chevron inverted purpure and purpure fretty argent a cat sejant and on a chief argent a key fesswise, wards to sinister, vert.
This is being returned for a style and for a redraw. Fretty is not a field treatment, so the field is simply purpure, with a portion of the field covered with fretty. While we do seem to allow portions of a field to be fretty, they need to be better delineated than this one is. Furthermore, the line of division is too high to be per chevron inverted. When it comes to lines of division, the chief is treated as if it is attached to the top of the shield (as opposed to placed on the shield). Thus there needs to be a gap between the edge of the chief and the line of division.
Meadhbh nic Fhaoiltighearna. Badge. (Fieldless) A wolf statant to sinister maintaining a broken trap sable.
This conflicts with Malcolm Leslie the Scot (SCA) (Fieldless) A Scottish terrier statant contourny sable., and Lettice Atwode of Sandhyll (SCA) Gyronny gules and Or, a greyhound statant contourny sable. In both cases there is just one CD for fieldlessness and nothing for the particular type of canine.
Seán Brannagh. Name and device. Sable an oak tree blasted and eradicated and on a chief argent a grapevine sable the whole within a bordure gules.
This submitter already has the name Sean Breathnach, and the device of Sable, a tree blasted and eradicated and on a chief argent a leaved vine throughout sable. registered November 1995. He had submitted Seán Brannagh, but since that mixed Gaelic and English orthography in the same name it was changed to Sean Breathnach when it was registered. We cannot treat this as a name change and change it to the submitted form, since there would be the same problem. The proposed new device breaks the rule of tincture with a gules bordure on a sable field. Additionally a chief normally overlies the bordure, and always does when the chief is charged.
Seraphima Iaroslava Suvorova. Device. Sable, a standing seraph argent.
This conflicts with Eleri of Nefyn (SCA) Sable, a demi female affronty issuant from a stump eradicated argent, maintaining a leaved staff bendwise Or., and Canton of the Guardians of the Sacred Stone (SCA) Vert, a winged man displayed maintaining above his head a spear fesswise argent. In the first case there is a CD but not substantial difference for type of humanoid; in the second there is a CD for the field but nothing between two winged humanoids. Even if there were no conflicts, we would be forced to return this for a redraw, as the seraph is not argent, but sable fimbriated argent. A seraph is far too complex a charge to fimbriate.
Attemark, Shire of. Device. Per bend sinister vert and checky vert and Or, a laurel wreath Or.
This conflicts with the Shire of Wyndhame Per pale embattled gules and Or, in dexter chief a laurel wreath Or., and with the SCA (Order of the Laurel) (Tinctureless) A laurel wreath. In both cases there is just one CD for the field.
Some members of the college have suggested that this is clear of Wyndhame under the provisions of RfS X.3. ("Two pieces of official Society armory that share required charges may consider their Difference of Primary Charges as if the required charges were not there., and that with no charges to be considered, the two pieces of armory should be judged under the field primary rules. However, RfS X.3 deals with complexity, and not with conflict. Furthermore, on the November 1990 LoAR, Master Da'ud as Laurel said:
Dubh-Thrian, Canton of. Name and device. Per chevron argent and sable, a laurel wreath vert.
"Regarding possible conflict with the arms of the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc., Or, a laurel wreath vert, X.3 indicates that required charges (such as the laurel wreath for groups) are "invisible" only for the purposes of applying X.2 (Difference of Primary Charge). Since the laurel wreath is the primary charge here, no difference can be counted for making it "invisible" for purposes of counting difference."
So, with severe regrets, we are returning this device.
Juneborg, Shire of. Name.
This is being returned for lack of a petition. The paperwork for the name of any official SCA group and the device for any official SCA group must include written support for the proposed submission.
Ulfr Raude. Device. Gyronny vert and Or, a wolf rampant gules maintaining a barrel proper.
This conflicts with James the Fox (SCA) Or, a fox rampant guardant gules., and Frank Wutendwolf (SCA) Sable, a wolf rampant gules, fimbriated argent., with one CD in each case for field, and nothing for the maintained charge, head position or fimbriation.
Uma, Shire of. Device. Argent, on a pale azure a salmon embowed contourny argent, overall a laurel wreath vert.
This conflicts with King of Caid Argent, on a pale azure, a crescent argent., and College of Blaiddwyn Argent, on a pale gules a wolf sejant affronty argent overall a laurel wreath vert. The first has a CD for the wreath and the second has one for the tincture of the pale, but RFS X.4.j.ii does allow its application in the presence of overall charges (which are not "entirely on the field"); lacking that application there is no CD for type only of tertiary in either case.
Geoffrey de Wygan. Device. Per fess azure and argent, two suns in splendor Or and a castle vert.
This conflicts with the ensign of the Kingdom of Atenveldt Per fess azure and argent, in canton a sun in his splendor Or. (see elsewhere in this LoAR for the reblazon). The addition of charges to a group is worth just a single CD. Neither is there a CD for position, since the sun on the Atenveldt ensign is in exactly the same position on the field as one of the suns on this submission.
Catelin atte Redfethere. Device. Per bend sinister sable and argent, three swords in bend sinister bendwise sinister proper and three swords in bend sinister bendwise sinister inverted gules hilted sable, between a phoenix Or and a feather bendwise sinister gules.
This is being returned for violating our ban on slot-machine heraldry (three or more different charges in the same charge group). The swords lie as if they were on a bend sinister, and if this were the case the phoenix and the feather would be secondary charges. There is, however, in fact no bend sinister, making it difficult to interpret how the charge groupings lie. They can all be taken as one big primary group of three different types, or the swords can be taken as the primary group with the phoenix and feather as secondaries. However, this submission is so far from period style because of the ambiguity of how the charges are arranged. Therefore this is being returned for slot machine and non-period style.
Christine O'Neill of Cork. Badge. (Fieldless) A plate within a leather looped belt, buckled and knotted gules.
This is being returned for unidentifiability. This blazon will not reliably produce this picture. This is really a looped belt gules with the interior region argent. The use of a red belt is not a problem in and of itself as squire is not a rank, and the red belt is not reserved.
Edward of Lyonsmoor. Badge. (Fieldless) A lions head erased Or.
This conflicts with Alphia Biraz-pars (SCA) Sable, a natural leopard’s head couped Or marked sable. There is one CD for the field but nothing for lion’s head versus leopard’s head or couped versus erased and nothing for the markings on the natural leopard’s head.
Peregrine Fairchylde. Device. Vair a six-legged squirrel rampant gules.
There are multiple problems with a six-legged squirrel rampant. Rampant is not a defined term for hexapods, some early SCA blazons notwithstanding. Given the blazon the logical guess would be that this mutant beastie would have three sets of two legs, i.e. two fore, two middle, and two hind legs. However, this has two sets of three: three forelegs and three hindlegs. This means that this emblazon is not reproducible from this blazon, and must be returned for that reason. Absent any documentation of period heraldry adding limbs to otherwise ordinary beasts this must also be returned for style.
Ailred Mac Pìoba An Thòrra Dhuibh. Name and device. Ermine, a wyvern volant wings elevated vert, bellied and winged gules, breathing flames proper, playing a set of bagpipes and a tower issuant from base sable.
This is being returned for mixing English and Gaelic orthography in the same name. Ailred is the name of an abbot of Rievaulx, but it is an English name. The closest Gaelic form would be Ailearán. The byname needs some work. As the letter of intent indicates, the first element means "son of a bagpipe", not "son of a piper". To get "piper", you have to use pìobair, which is a masculine noun indeclinable in the singular (Calder, A Gaelic Grammar, p. 85). As the occupationals normally use an article which will cause lenition in the following masculine genitive, the phrase should be mac a’ phìobair (ibid., pp. 29 and 101). The initial consonant in torr does not lenite (ibid., p. 29). Genitive singular adjectives do lenite (ibid., p. 30). If the byname he actually wants is "son of the piper of the Black Tower", he is looking at something like mac a’ phìobair as an Tòrra Dhuibh. Or for an all English form he could be Ailred Piper of Blacktower. Since either form would be a major change, we are returning the name to let the submitter choose the form he wishes.
The armory is being returned for conflict. As emblazoned, the wyvern is more than 50% gules, which brings it into conflict with the Shire of Drachensheim Or, a dragon passant gules, atop and its tail entwined about a tower sable., and Reinald FitzAlbert de la Tour Phenix (SCA) Ermine, issuant from a ruined tower sable a phoenix gules enflamed of flames proper. In the first case there is one CD for the field, but nothing for tincture of the wyvern or for position. In the second case there is a CD for type of one of two primary charges , but again nothing for type or position.
Ailred Mac Pìoba An Thòrra Dhuibh. Household name for Cinneadh Pìoba and badge. Ermine, a wyvern volant wings elevated vert, bellied and winged gules, breathing flames proper, playing a set of bagpipes sable.
This is being returned for lack of paperwork. Additionally the household names shares some of the construction problems with the submitted name.
Aramis de Loire. Name.
This is an appeal of a kingdom return of the name for lack of documentation. The submitter explains Aramis as a constructed name from the Hebrew Aram and the French ending -is. This is, in fact, not a period form of name construction, and barring documentation of Aramis as a period name, it must be returned. The armory was registered under the holding name Brandon de Loire.
Carreg y Blaidd, Canton of. Name.
This is being returned for lack of a petition. Names and devices for official SCA groups must show evidence of support from the group.
Chen Yung Ho. Household name for House Finis Terrae
Submitted as House Terrae Finis, we have put the household name in the more typical word order. However, even as it was originally submitted, it conflicts with Finisterre, the western tip of Brittany, the western most part of France.
Marian of Heatherdale. Badge. (Fieldless) A lion passant guardant argent dimidiated with the hulk of a ship purpure.
This is being returned for violating RfS XI3, marshalled armory. This is not a charge; it is merely a visual effect of the dimidiation, which is a form of marshalling of two independent pieces of armory. In Parker’s Glossary the illustration on p.537 shows this clearly: no attempt is made to combine the charges on either side; they just happen to touch where the line of division cuts them off. Unless and until there is some documentation of the use of this combination as an independent charge not resulting directly from dimidiation, this cannot be registered in the SCA.
Pancratz Pügge. Device. Per pale argent and sable, a maunche within a bordure rayonny purpure.
This is being returned for a redraw. The bordure as far too many rayons to be registerable.
Tancred of Tanglewood. Name.
This is being returned for lack of documentation for the placename. The documentation boiled down to it being the English translation of an Icelandic byname that sounds a bit like an English byname. Barring documentation of the byname we have to return the name.
Van of Vest Yorvik. Name and device. Per chevron inverted embattled purpure and Or, a griffin salient Or and two swords in chevron inverted crossed at the hilts sable.
This is being returned because Van is not a first name. While documented from Dauzat, Dauzat says:
"Van, prépos flamande correspondant à de, marquant l'origine (allem von). ..." That is to say it is "a preposition corresponding to de marking a locative [origin of the person] (also von)...not a first name.
We found no problems with the armory, and would have registered it, but there was no legal name on the form to use to construct a holding name.
SOCIETY FOR CREATIVE ANACHRONISM
The Crest of the Royal Arms of Canada; the badge of the Governor General, Rideau Hall (the Canadian "White House"), and Canadian Heraldic Authority. Badge. (Fieldless) On a wreath argent and gules a lion passant guardant crowned Or maintaining in its dexter paw a maple leaf gules.
While mentioned in LoI as a badge, this is a crest, and it is long standing CoA practice not to register or protect crests.
Quebec. Important-non SCA flag. Azure, a cross between four fleur-de-lys argent.
Without any reasons as to why this flag is important enough to protect, we must return it.
Warrick. (Fieldless) A ragged staff argent.
While Laurel personally feels that this badge is important enough to protect, the College did not agree.
The following item is pended until the May 1998 Laurel meeting:
Caterina Ruzzini. Badge. Gules, three Catharine wheels Or.
It has been proposed that these arms be added to our protected list for the following reason:
This badge is identical to the arms born by Katherine Roel, better known by the name she bore during her first marriage, Katharine Swynford. (See the illustration of these arms in Louda and Maclagan, Heraldry of the Royal Families of Europe, Table 5). Katherine was the morganatic wife of the Duke of Gaunt and it was from this marriage that the Beaufort Earls and Dukes of Somerset descended. Ultimately, this line provided legitimacy to the somewhat dubious claims of the Tudor line through the marriage of Margaret Beaufort to Edmund Tudor. While these arms do not appear in the current on-line armorial, they definitely should be protected. Note that Katherine’s father was Sir Giles Roel or Roelt, a Flemish knight who served as Guienne King of Arms for Aquitaine in the fourteenth century and these arms appear in many period heraldic rolls.
