Meredith of the White Cliffs. Device. Sable, a tyger sejant to sinister Or, within an orle of mullets argent.
Vulcanfeldt, Shire of. Device. Per chevron gules and Or upon a sun a laurel wreath all counterchanged within a bordure embattled sable.
The charges here are on the very edge of unidentifiability because of the counterchanging. Only the clarity of the laurel wreath in this design kept it from going beyond the bounds.William of Vulcanfeldt. Holding name and device. Vert, six billets in fess argent between a chevron inverted and a chevron Or.
Windy Vale, College of. Name (see RETURNS for device).
KINGDOM OF ANSTEORRA
Adrienne Diana Rainier. Device. Sable, a cat's face argent between four lozenges in cross ermine, all within an orle Or.
This item was pended from the February Laurel meeting.Ansteorra, Kingdom of. Title for Actuarius Pursuivant.

As a number of commenters correctly guessed, and researched, the rainbow was "proper".Aoibheall Dylon. Name only (see RETURNS for device).
Arabella Brus. Name and device. Sable, between a chevronel and a chevronel inverted braced, a caltrop Or.
The relative sizes of the charges, not to mention the fact that chevrons and their diminutives are ordinaries, clearly made the chevronels the primaries, and thus this does not conflict with Selena of the Northern Woods, cited in the LoI.Bebinn of Bury St. Edmonds. Name change from Bebinn of Elvegast and device. Per chevron erminois and azure, in base a lily flower argent.
Please do not use the term "ermines", as it becomes confusing. In this case (as with the badge of the Queen's Champion), the fur was actually erminois. (The SCA normally uses the term counter-ermine for the fur British heralds call ermines.)Cera Campbell. Device. Or, an iris purpure and on a chief sable, three thistles Or.
As several commenters noted, irises come in a number of colors. This one is (and was researched by a number of commenters as being) purpure.Daniel Farseeker. Name only (see RETURNS for device).
Doran Campbell. Pean, a boar's head couped close within a bordure argent.
Submitted as Dorran Campbell, the submitter's name was registered January 1989 with only one "r". The device still contains one allusion to Campbell armory (their boar's head crest), but used in this manner does not appear excessive.Duibheasa Maeve of Strikkenwoode. Name.

Efenwealt Wystle. Name
Isenfir, Shire of. Change of device. Or, in pale a sword inverted sable and a mountain couped of three peaks gules, all within a laurel wreath sable.

Please ask the submitter to draw the compass star larger.Elspeth Charissa aus Reinwald. Name and device. Purpure, a pegasus rampant, wings inverted and addorsed, within a bordure argent.

Garth Elander. Name and device. Azure, two lions combattant Or and on a chief triangular argent a cross botonny gules.

Angelina d'Este. Device. Argent ermined, on a cross clechy gules four pierrot masks Or.
Argent, ermined gules, is a CVD from ermine, thus this is clear of Aldewinckell, Ermine, on a cross paty gules, a mullet Or. A cross clechy is a CVD from a cross flory, so this is clear from Owtred, Argent, on a cross flory gules, four mullets Or.Aonghais Dubh MacTarbh. Badge for Clann Creachainn. A sprig of three oak leaves Or, the center leaf charged with a cartouche gules.

Haakon Tryggvason. Name.
Submitted as Haakon Trygvason. We have added the documented second "g", as the submitter's forms allowed, as dropping it does appear to change the pronunciation significantly.Jehanne Urchurdan. Badge. [Fieldless] A wingless sea dragon erect contourny vert supporting a ruined tower argent.
We have reblazoned the badge to better reflect the respective sizes of the two charges and to follow standard blazon practice of blazoning chief/dexter to base/sinister.Jonathan Blaecstan. Device. Sable, on a bend sinister vert fimbriated argent a gauntlet clenched, in dexter chief a fleur-de-lys Or.
Kyrielle Chandoisel. Device. Per chevron throughout ployé engrailed Or and purpure, a dove volant argent bearing in its beak an olive branch proper and in chief two crescents purpure.
Submitted as "Purpure, chapé ployé invected ...", the chapé comes too far down the sides of the shield to truly be considered chapé (not to mention the fact that the chapé portions of the field should not be charged). It is visually "per chevron throughout", so we have reblazoned it thus.Kyriell Hawkmoon. Name.
Laurena Mouchot. Name.
Lorenzo Alhambra. Name and device. Vert, on a chevron between three flasks argent, two salamanders combattant vert enflamed gules.
Louise LaMotte. Name.

Tancred dello Falco. Name.
Wyrmgeist, Shire of. Device. Argent, on a pile engrailed sable, a dragon sejant erect Or, overall a laurel wreath counterchanged.
Please ask them to redraw the pile so that it does not issue from the corners of the chief.KINGDOM OF TRIMARIS

Aylwin Greymane. Name.
Branwen ferch Emrys. Name and device. Per chevron sable and vert, a raven rising wings elevated and addorsed, in chief two compass stars argent.
Vs. Duncan MacThearlaich, cited in the LoI, in this case the raven is clearly the primary charge, being the largest charge on the emblazon and in the center of the shield. As such we may apply rule X.1, Addition of Primary Charge.Carl the Hopeful. Name and device. Vert, two scarpes Or, each charged with an arrow sable.
Ceolgar of Amberglen. Name and device. Per fess wavy argent and azure, a drakkar sailing to sinister and four arrows fretted, counterchanged.

Submitted as Diedre Hawsworth, the name was registered in this form in February, 1990.Drew Steele. Name and device. Sable, a dexter arm, armored and gauntletted, embowed fesswise, grasping a goblet, in base a goutte, Or.
[An irreverent comment from the meeting: Considering his name, the submitter should be told that a sword should be on this device.]Dughghall ó Séaghdha. Name and device. Per chevron argent and sable, on a chevron between two lions dormant gules and a dragon dormant, two ermine spots palewise argent.
Edmund the Lame. Device. Sable, an armored leg palewise embowed and on a chief argent, a maltese cross between a decrescent and an increscent gules.
The chief is poor style, and borders on "slot machine heraldry". Only the fact that the two outside charges are crescent variants keeps it from going beyond the pale of the permissible.Gwendolyn the Rat Keeper. Badge. [Fieldless] A compass rose quarterly argent and sable.
Gyrth Greycloak. Name and device. Per saltire gules and sable, a sword proper between two ram's heads couped respectant argent, horned Or.

THE FOLLOWING SUBMISSIONS ARE RETURNED:
KINGDOM OF AN TIR
Erlend MacLeod. Device. Gules, five eagles' heads erased in saltire Or.
Conflict with Rion, Gules, three griffins' heads erased Or. There is only one CVD for number of charges. This is clear from Fenton, cited by several commenters, Vert, six falcons' heads erased Or, with one CVD for the field tincture and another for the arrangement of the charges (in saltire vs. three, two and one).Genevieve de Montfort. Device. Argent, two flaunches checky vert and sable, in pale a heart and three mullets one and two gules.
Checky of two colors has not been permissible for quite some time.William Blakeney. Name.
Conflict with William Blakeney, Baron Blakeney, the British commander who unsuccessfully defended Minorca against the French in 1756.Windy Vale, College of. Device. Azure, within a laurel wreath inverted Or, a Boreas affronty argent.
Conflict with Cassandra de la Mistral, Azure, a Boreas (wind) affronty argent. There is only one CVD for the addition of the wreath.KINGDOM OF ANSTEORRA
Ansteorra, Kingdom of. Title for Argent Lion Pursuivant.
Conflict with Lyon King of Arms. Per V.1 and V.2, addition of an adjective is insufficient.Ansteorra, Kingdom of. Title for Athena Herald Extraordinary.
Conflict with the Order of Athena, registered to the Barony of the Angels.Ansteorra, Kingdom of. Title for Estoile Pursuivant.
Currently registered to the West Kingdom.Ansteorra, Kingdom of. Title for Iris Herald.

Conflict with the Falcon Herald. Per V.1 and V.2, addition of an adjective is insufficient.Ansteorra, Kingdom of. Title for Sable Thistle Pursuivant.
Conflict with the Scottish Order of the Thistle. Per V.1 and V.2, addition of an adjective is insufficient.KINGDOM OF ATLANTIA
Adenwald the Hazardous. device. Per chevron azure and plumetty azure and argent, a hawk displayed, wings inverted, Or.
Multiple conflicts, including: De Limesay, Gules, an eagle displayed Or; Bartram, Azure, an eagle displayed Or; Duchy of Westphalia, Azure, an eagle displayed crowned Or; Palatinate of Saxony, Azure, an eagle displayed (sometimes crowned) Or; and Gilbert of the Glens, Azure, an eagle displayed grasping a sun in both claws Or. In each case there is only one CVD, for the field.Alesia d'Trenwyth. Name.
Had the submitter allowed minor changes to grammar, we could have registered this as Alesia de Trenwyth. As it is it must be returned because the French "de" is not contracted this way before a consonant. Trenwyth seems to be an acceptable variant of Trenewyth, based on several similar variant spellings, including Trenewth and Trenwith.Aoibheall Dylon. Device. Sable, a pall inverted and voided between in chief two dragons rampant and in base a crescent argent.
Conflict with Urho Waltterinen, Sable, on a pall inverted argent a chevron rompu sable. There is one CVD for the addition of the secondaries, but we could not in good faith grant another for the difference between a pall inverted "charged with a chevron rompu" and a pall inverted "charged with a pall inverted".Aoibheall Dylon. Badge. Sable, a dragon rampant environed of a crescent argent.
Since the crescent is fairly clearly the primary here, this conflicts with Densel, Sable, a crescent enclosing an eight-pointed estoile argent. Were the dragon considered the primary, this would conflict with Alexander Greylorn, Sable, a dragon segreant, incensed of icy breath, and a chief rayonny argent.Artemidore de la Coeur Sincere. Device. Per chevron argent and sable, two fleurs-de-lys and a stag courant counterchanged within a bordure engrailed gules.
Conflict with Nelson, Per chevron argent and sable, three fleurs-de-lys counterchanged. There is a CVD for the addition of the bordure, but nothing (at this point in time) for changing type of one of the three primaries.Atlantia, Kingdom of. Badge for Queen's Champion. [Fieldless] Two tridents in saltire Or, surmounted by an escallop erminois, between four roses gules, barbed and seeded proper.
Please do not use the term "ermines", as it is confusing. In this case (as with the submission of Bebinn of Bury St. Edmonds) the fur was actually erminois. (The SCA normally uses the term counter-ermine for the fur British heralds call ermines.) From a study of the way the ermine spots were drawn, it appears that the emblazon was submitted upside down on both the LoI and the submission forms. This is being returned because it is a fieldless badge having disconnected charges of two tincture classes, color and metal. This has not been allowed for some time (this precedent was, in fact, written into the old rules as AR13b). Additionally, it is very busy for a badge, with seven charges of three types and four tinctures.Caer Daibhidh, College of. Name appeal of Laurel return and device. Argent, on a pale azure, a plate indented within a laurel wreath overall counterchanged.
Per V.4, the name does not conflict with the College of Saint David. However, the name still has the problem of mixing two languages into a single phrase, and their documentation does not really support the combination here. Were the name involved here of Gaelic origin, then their arguments might be stronger; however, David is a borrowed name, which appeared in different forms in the two languages used in the name submitted. That "David" would have been preserved in a form such as this is not supported by the evidence. The device conflicts with a badge for the Kingdom of Caid, Argent, on a pale azure a crescent argent. The roundel needs to be drawn with fewer, and much bolder, "indents".Daniel Farseeker. Device. Azure, an arrow inverted within an orle Or.
This technically conflicts with the Mercian Training Brigade, Azure, an imperial eagle displayed within an orle all Or (Military Ordinary #290), with only one CVD for type of primary. Vs. Patruska Vozon d'Angoumois, Azure, a stag lodged to sinister within a tressure Or, Laurel is inclined to allow a CVD for type of primary and another for orientation (palewise vs. fesswise), making them clear.Dugal MacTaveis. Device. Argent, three mullets sable between a gore and a gore sinister gules.
Conflict with Pelton, Argent, three mullets sable, with one CVD for the addition of the secondaries. Were the gores considered the primary charges (which they really cannot here), this would conflict with with Geoffrey Thomas, Argent, two gussets gules, with a CVD for the addition of the mullets.Iain Monlach. Device. Sable, a pall argent, overall a roundel engrailed gules, fimbriated argent.
Rule VIII.3 notes that "voiding and fimbriation may only be used with simple geometric charges...." The roundel engrailed is too complex a charge to fimbriate this way.Still Ernst. Device. Argent, upon a pale between two spiral Corinthian columns sable, three ivy leaves argent.
Conflict with Taylor, Argent, on a pale sable, three lions argent, and with Sable, Argent, on a pale between two anchors sable three estoiles of the field. There is a CVD for the secondaries (addition against Taylor and type against Sable), but the change of type only of the tertiaries is insufficient for the second necessary CVD.Still Ernst. Badge. [Fieldless] A Corinthian column argent, entwined of an ivy vine proper.
Conflict with Barony of the Bridge, Barry wavy azure and Or, a doric column argent. There is a CVD for fieldlessness, but the vine was visually no more significant than many "held" charges.KINGDOM OF CAID
Cedrych Ladyman. Device. Gyronny argent and azure, a mullet within a bordure sable.
Conflict with Ansteorra, Or, a mullet of five greater and five lesser points within a bordure sable, as cited in the LoI. There is one CVD for the change to the field. The removal of the lesser points of the mullet, particularly given the fact of near unidentifiability of the mullet on the azure portions of the gyronny field, are not worth the necessary second CVD.Davin Mac Alister of Drake's Height. Device. Gules, a crossbow between in base two bolts Or.
Conflict with Baliste, Gules, a crossbow Or. There is one CVD, for the addition of the secondaries.George of Clan O'Caine. Name and badge for Gaesatae Wyndholme. Argent, a gurges gules, overall a spear sable.
Well, Wyndholme (English, not Norse as stated in the LoI) is fine. It seems unclear from the commentary whether the Gaesatae were a specific class of Celtic nobility or a specific tribe (noted primarily for the use of the spear and going naked into battle). Either way, it is not appropriate for registration. The badge conflicts with Chellery, Argent, a whirlpool gules, and with Carlotta Belfiore de Firenze, Argent, a gurges gules, overall a triskelion arrondi sable. Versus Chellery, there is only one CVD for the addition of the spear; versus Carlotta there is only one CVD for changing the type of overall charge.Margarette Candace van Zanten. Name.
The submitter wishes to add Candace to her currently registered name, Margarette van Zanten. Unfortunately, no one could document Candace as other than a name which became a title for Ethiopian queens. We need evidence that it was used as a name in period by others before it can be registered.Maria Theresa Ipeñarrieta. Device. Vert, a mullet of five greater and five lesser points Or within five crescents in annulo, horns inward, their points conjoined to the greater points of the mullet, argent.
This is in conflict with Carvalho, Azure, a mullet of eight points Or within [and conjoined at the saltirewise points to] a lunel argent, as cited in Crescent's letter of response.Titus Flavius Aurelianus. Device. Gules, a four-winged thunderbolt within a bordure Or.
Conflict with the Ermine Street Guard, an English Roman legion recreation group. There is one CVD for the addition of the bordure. See RfS I.3 and I.3.a for the applicable principles.Torres Rewel, Loernung-hús. Name.
KINGDOM OF CALONTIR
Caitrin ni Ruaidhri. Badge. Vert, on a flame argent, a thistle purpure.
Conflict with Michael Bjornson, Vert, a viking longship sable upon flames of fire argent. There is only one CVD, for changing the type and tincture of the charge on the flames.Derek Logan. Device. Vert, a bend sinister argent between a unicorn head couped and a dragon head couped to sinister Or.
The tincture of the bend sinister was left off the LoI. (The "bend sinister" on the emblazon form was also closer to a "ribband sinister". Please have the submitter draw it much wider when he resubmits.) Because on the forms it was quite clearly argent, there is a conflict with Dail y Eiliwriad o Cwm Cwymp Dwr, Vert, a scarpe argent between an oak leaf and a castle of three stepped towers Or. There is only one CVD for changing the type of secondaries.Elizabeth Winter of White Forest. Badge. Pean, in pale a compass star and a lion couchant Or.
Conflict with Rolf the Relentless, Pean, a compass star fitchy of eight Or. There is only one CVD, for the addition of the lion.Olivia Xiména de Cabezón. Device. Sable, chapé ployé plumetty Or and vert, a harp Or.
There are a number of conflicts: Ireland, Azure, a harp Or; David, Azure, a harp Or; SCA Ministry of the Arts, Purpure, an Irish harp Or; Meridies Companionate of Bards, Vair, a harp Or; and Lanschaden and Steinach, Sable, a harp Or. Since the SCA considers chapé to be a field division, there is only one CVD in each case for the change to the field.Rosamund Samborski. Device. Sable, on a spiderweb throughout argent, a spider between three roses Or.
Conflict with the Order of Arachne's Web, Sable, a spiderweb argent. There is only one CVD for the addition of the charges on the web.Steffen Albert Rheinbauer. Device. Azure, three clenched gauntlets aversant within an orle of chain Or.
Conflict with Vane/Fane, Azure, three dexter gauntlets Or. There is only one CVD for the addition of the chain.Wyvern Cliffe, Shire of. Device. Checky argent and azure, a wyvern erect gules within a laurel wreath lying as on a bordure vert.
The laurel wreath was virtually unidentifiable at any distance against the field (see RfS VIII.3 for the applicable principle). If the submitters would consider making the wreath gules, this problem would be greatly mitigated.KINGDOM OF THE EAST
East, Kingdom of the. Badge and designation for Master Bowmen of the East. Or, four arrows fretted points to chief sable within a bordure gules.
We cannot, in good conscience, register a title reserved by Corpora to peers to any non-peerage group, no matter in what form they propose to use it. It may be that there are guilds which use some form of "guildmaster", "master armorer", etc. These ranks are not registered, nor can they be, unless and until the Board of Directors changes the titles of rank of the peerages. The badge conflicts with a badge of the West Kingdom, Or, four arrows fretted sable, barbed gules. This conflict was known when the LoI was sent to the College, and was included "on spec", in the hopes that a letter of permission could be obtained before the Laurel meeting. This is poor procedure, and should not be done. Obtain the letter of permission first.East, Kingdom of. Badge and designation for Grand Master Bowmen of the East. Or, four arrows fretted points to chief within an annulet sable.

It may be that there are guilds which use some form of "guildmaster", "master armorer", etc. These ranks are not registered, nor can they be, unless and until the Board of Directors changes the titles of rank of the peerages.

This is poor procedure, and should not be done. Obtain the letter of permission first.Svea the Shortsighted. Name for House Saltmarsh.
The name conflicts with March of the Marshes per RfS V.1 and V.2. Addition of an adjective is insufficient.KINGDOM OF MERIDIES
Christopher Morgan MacCathalain. Device. Per chevron argent and Or, both ermined azure, on a chevron gules, three enfields passant Or.
The charges on the chevron were quite clearly enfields, not talbots as stated in the letter of intent. Unfortunately, the device conflicts with Sigurd of Encboergaard, Lozengy argent and sable, on a chevron gules three caltraps Or, and with Robert de Bolton, Argent, on a chevron gules three lions passant guardant Or (Foster, p. 26). In each case there is one CVD for the field, but nothing for changing only the type of tertiary charges. Conflict also with Fiona Clare O Doinn, Counter-ermine, on a chevron gules a poppy argent between two others Or. There is a CVD for the field, but nothing for changing the type and 1/3 tincture of the tertiaries. (Lord Silver Trumpet also gives a long list of other Papworth conflicts which we will not cite here: they are all based on [Field], on a chevron gules three [charges] Or.)Gwenhwyfar the Wita. Name.
This was not a new submission, as stated on the letter of intent, but was returned in the LoAR of 28 November 1987, noting that wita was a member of the Witanagemot, the Anglo-Saxon ruling council, and that wita also means "white", so that the name conflicts with the Arthurian Guinevere the White. None of the issues in that return have been addressed, and so it must be returned again for the same reasons.Judith de Bohun. Device. Per fess sable and gules, two pairs of annulets interlaced Or and a butterfly Or, marked sable.
Conflict with Clench, Gules, six annulets conjoined in pairs Or, two and one. There is a CVD for the field, but nothing for changing the type of 1/3 of the primaries. Unlike the case of Branwen ferch Emrys, West Kingdom, above, the butterfly here is clearly in base, and its visual weight is no stronger than that of the annulets. That being the case, it cannot be considered the primary charge, but only one of a single group of primaries.Shaul ben Yisrawael. Name appeal.
While the submitter's additional documentation was very interesting, he has not addressed the issues stated for the last return, viz., that the average person would believe the name to mean "Saul, king of Israel". Nor has he given any evidence for the extra "wa" in the patronymic. (Even the expert quoted by the submitter in the appeal uses the more common "Yisrael".)KINGDOM OF THE WEST
Anastasia Nikolaievna Raskol'nikova. Device. Or, semy of increscents gules, a sun sable.
Conflict with Firstman of the Lakes (Fabulous Heraldry #874), Or, a sun sable. There is one CVD, for the addition of the semy.Jacinta van Schoonhoven. Device. Argent, four hearts in saltire, points to center, gules, surmounted by an annulet Or.
Conflict with the Princes of Lippe (Woodward p. 324), Argent, a rose gules, barbed and seeded proper, and with Rosenberg (Woodward), Argent, a rose gules, seeded Or. The visual resemblance was striking.James of Nottingham. Device. Per saltire gules and sable, a fret within a bordure Or.
Conflict with Hudleston, Gules, fretty and a bordure Or. Evidence has been presented that "a fret" and "fretty" were considered interchangeable in period, so no difference can be granted between them (as with a chevron and a chevron throughout). Visual conflict with Stephen Trahearn, Gyronny sable and gules, a fret couped within a bordure Or.
