Something Rich and Strange: “Undocumentable” Names From The IGI Parish Records

by Alys Mackyntoich (Alissa Pyrich)

            The International Genealogical Index (“IGI”) contains a multitude of microfilmed records from which birth, marriage, christening, death and other public records have been extracted.  These records can be found on line and searched at www.familyseach.org.  The June 2011 Cover Letter from the Laurel Sovereign of Arms of the SCA College of Heralds (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2011/06/11-06cl.html) permits the use of extracted data as name documentation:

As many of you may have noticed, thanks to Edelweiss, we have a new resource that allows us to search parish records that have been transcribed as part of the IGI (International Genealogical Index) project. Most data in this project is not useful for us, as it is submitted by modern researchers doing genealogical research. However, this project also includes a large number of names transcribed by researchers directly from parish records; these names are reasonable documentation.

The extracted data from the IGI Parish Records allow heralds to document a number of names previously thought to be undocumentable and unregisterable.  These records also contain a wealth of unusual names that may be attractive to submitters.  This article collects a number of examples of such names in one place.

The information provided for each name is that required to use the IGI Parish Records as name documentation for the SCA College of Heralds:  name, gender, type of record, date, location and “Batch.”  The “Batch” number refers to the group of records from which the name data has been extracted.  Including the Batch number confirms that the name is from extracted data, which is reliable, and not from data submitted by the general public.

Non-heralds may wonder why name data is given for names through 1650.  Documentation for names found between 1601 and 1650 is permitted and usable, as explained in the March 2010 Cover Letter:

Most names elements whose first recorded use is in the "Gray Area" (between 1601 and 1650) are also plausible for the late 16th C. If the first time we find given name X listed in English is in a parish register as the name of an infant christened in 1635, we have to ask ourselves whether we can be certain that was really the first time the name was ever used in England. Because so many records have been lost over the years, and because not every person who ever lived was recorded in written documents, we simply cannot know.

This is the point of the "Gray Area": to allow for the incompleteness of our sources and so to provide a level of fairness to the submitters. We will continue to uphold this policy. If there is a specific reason to believe that a particular name element dated to the "Gray Area" would not or could not have been used prior to 1600, it will not be registerable. Otherwise, name elements dated to the "Gray Area" will be acceptable for use in SCA names.

Catriona

It was previously ruled that “[t]he spelling Catriona is neither Gaelic nor English. The closest Gaelic spelling is Caitríona. The closest English spelling is Catrina. As no documentation has been provided and none could be found for the spelling Catriona, it is not registerable.”  (Catrina of Whitemoor, 10/01, A-Meridies).  However, this spelling is found in the IGI Parish Records from England:

Corwyn or Corwen

Corwyn and its variants had previously been registered only as SCA-compatible names.  (Corwin of Saxony, 11/2001 LoAR, A-Ansteorra).  SCA-compatible names were eliminated effective May 2009.  (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2009/05/09-05cl.html).

However, in April 2010, Laurel ruled that late 16th and early 17th century English surnames could be used as given names, based on a documented pattern of such use in period.  (Alton of Grimfells, 4/2010 LoAR, A-East).  The IGI Parish Records provide ample evidence of Corwyn in various spellings as a late-period English surname.

Megan

Megan and its variants had previously been registered only as SCA-compatible names.  SCA-compatible names were eliminated effective May 2009.  (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2009/05/09-05cl.html).  However, in April 2010, Laurel ruled that late 16th and early 17th century English surnames could be used as given names, based on a documented pattern of such use in period.  (Alton of Grimfells, 4/2010 LoAR, A-East).  The IGI Parish Records provide evidence of Megan in various spellings as a late-period English surname.

Miranda has always been a popular, but undocumentable name.  Because The Tempest was not published or performed until after 1600, the literary allowance has not been available for this name.
