UNTO Francois la Flamme, Laurel King of Arms, Mari Elspeth nic Bryan, Pelican Queen of Arms, Zenobia Naphtali, Armory Queen of Arms, and Daniel de Lincoln, Laurel clerk, upon this 17th day of March, A.S. XXXVI (2002 CE),

DOES The Honorable Lord Pendar the Bard, Rampart Herald, send

GREETINGS!

Correction to the February 17, 2002, Letter of Intent:
2. Fearghus MacLennan. Name. The client had indicated on his name form that he will accept changes and is interested in having his name authentic for a 16th c. Scotland male. When I wrote him a submission status letter to let him know that his name had passed kingdom and been sent to Laurel on the February LoI, I indicated that an authentic name for a 16th c. Scotland male might be, M'Clynyne, M'Clenane, Makclennand, M'Clanan, or whatever other variant Pelican chose to give him to meet his request. He e-mailed me and explained that he is, in fact, not at all interested in having his name be made authentic for 16th century Scotland, and would prefer the all anglicized form “Fergus MacLennan”.

Appeal to a device currently in submission on the January 17, 2002, Letter of Intent:
10. Gauvain Eisenbein. Name and Device. Per chevron sable and Or honeycombed sable, a chevron argent and in chief two ears of grain slipped and leaved Or.
This device was already in process when Laurel made the ruling that honeycombing would no longer be allowed as of April 2002. Although the ruling was officially made in November, the LoAR was not printed or received until after this submission had been sent to the Laurel office.

On behalf of Master Balthazar Tigrerro, White Stag Principal Herald,
I offer the following submissions for registration:

  1. Adam Stedefast. Device Resubmission. Per chevron abased azure and sable, a phoenix Or rising from flames proper issuant from the line of division and a rose argent.
  2. His name was registered in July of 2000 via the Outlands. This identical submission was returned by Laurel in July of 2000 for a redraw. “The flames should not extend along the entire line of division, but should be only under the phoenix's body and slightly beyond. By extending to the edge, the flames appear to be a chevron of flame, which is not allowed. In addition, while not a reason for return, the per chevron line should extend higher onto the field.” The flames no longer extend to the edge of the field. The position of the line of division on the field is important to the submitter. He wants to be sure the phoenix takes up more space on the field than the rose, hence the inclusion of the word “abased” in the blazon.

  3. Caterine d’Albret. Badge. (Fieldless) Three fleurs-de-lys conjoined in pall inverted bases to center argent.
  4. Her name is currently in process on the November 2001 Outlands Letter of Intent.

  5. Cecily de Heselington. Name.
  6. “Cecily” is found in Withycombe, s.n. Cecilia, page 57. It is from the Latin Caecilia, the feminine form of Caecilius. St. Cecilia was a Roman martyred c. 177. The name became a favorite in the Western church. It was introduced to England at the Norman Conquest. This specific spelling is not dated but has been registered as a given name in the SCA 10 times, as recently as 1998. “Heslington” is found in R&W, page 229, s.n. Heslington. Geoffrey de Heselington’ 1190 P (Y); William de Heselington’ 1219 AssY; William de Haselingden 1332 SRLa. From Heslington (ERY), or Haslingden (La). She will not accept major changes and is interested in having her name be authentic for “England” language/culture.

  7. Diana of the Tulips. Badge. (Fieldless) Four tulips gules slipped in cross bases to center conjoined with four leaves in saltire bases to center vert.
  8. Her name was registered in April of 1988 via the Outlands.

  9. Dimiana bint al-Katib. Change of registered name.
  10. Her name was registered as “Damiana bint al-Katib” in October 2001. It was submitted as “Dimiana” and was always intended to be “Dimiana”, but there was a typo on the May 2001 Outlands Letter of Intent which spelled it “Diamiana”. Pelican made a decision on which spelling to use, but the client would prefer it as “Dimiana.” Since this typo occured on the Outlands LoI rather than the LoAR, this is a change of registered name submission rather than just a correction.

  11. Jeanne-Marie Dubois. Name.
  12. “Jeanne-Marie” is the client’s legal given name. A copy of her CO driver’s license was included as documentation (though it specifically identifies her as “Jeanne M”.) All three elements can be documented using Dauzat. “Jeanne” is on page 343 s.n. Jean. “Marie” is on page 416 s.n. Marie. “Dubois” is on page 214 s.n. Dubois. “Dubois” is also found in R&W, page 143, s.n. Dubois. It is an old French name meaning ‘dweller in the wood’. John du Boys 1279 RH (O). Theydon Bois (Ess), Hugh de Bosco 1240, Bois Hall in Navestock (Ess), John de Bosco 1229. She will not accept minor changes, cares most about the language/culture, and is interested in having her name be authentic for 12-14th century French.

  13. Katherine Linnet Holford. Badge Resubmission. (Fieldless), a Catherine wheel argent charged with a capital letter A gules.
  14. Her name was registered in March of 1987 via the Outlands. This technically isn’t a resubmission yet since what it is intended to replace has not yet been returned, but it probably will be soon. Her previous submission, Sable, a Catherine wheel argent charged with a capital letter A gules was sent to Laurel on the December 17, 2001, Outlands Letter of Intent. It will more than likely be returned for conflict in April. She does not want to withdraw it, just in case it does get registered. If it does, this submission is to be dropped.

  15. Kjalvor Eyjadotter. Name.
  16. “Kjalvor” is in Geirr Bassi, pg 12. There is a hook under the “o”. Eyja is in Geirr Bassi pg 9. She will not accept major changes and is interested in having her name be authentic for 10th-11th c. Viking.

  17. Malcolm Makalestyr. Name and Device. Per pale vert and sable, six gouttes 3, 2, and 1 argent.
  18. “Malcolm” is found in Withycombe page 204. This spelling is not dated. It is from the Scottish Gaelic name maol-Columb, ‘servant’ or ‘disciple of Columb’. It is occasionally found in England in the Middle Ages. “Makalestyr” is found in Black, page 449 under the heading “Macalaster”. “Ranald Makalestyr, who obtained a lease of lands in Arran, 1455.” He will allow changes and is interested in having his name be authentic for 15th c. Scottish. The arrangements of the gouttes is important to the client. He wants to be sure that even when his arms are displayed on a shape other than an escutcheon that they still fall 3, 2, and 1.

  19. Meghan Ruadh nic Guinne. Change of registered device. Per pale vert and azure, three mullets in bend argent.
  20. Her name was registered in April of 1991 via the Outlands. Her current device was registered in February of 1992 via the Outlands: Per pale vert and azure, a horse's head couped contourny and in chief three mullets argent. If this new device is registered she would like the old one to be released.

  21. Michael of Ravenskeep. Name and Device. Argent, a pile sable and overall a chevron counterchanged argent and vert.
  22. “Michael” is found in Withycombe, page 218, where it is said to have been a favorite name from the 12th century onwards. No documentation was provided for “Ravenskeep”. It is the name of a household registered to Baron Mael Marden in November of 1991 via the Outlands. Only Mael Marden may grandfather its use, but it was registered without documentation and without comment. I’m willing to punt to Laurel on this one. The client actually uses the name Michael of Endroc, but couldn’t find documentation for Endroc. Any help on either byname would be appreciated. He cares most about the sound and language/culture and would like his name to be authentic for 12th c. English.

  23. Morgan Railey. Name and Device. Per pall inverted azure, vert, and Or.
  24. “Morgan” is found in Withycombe, page 222, where it is said to have been a favourite Welsh name from early times. “Railey” is found in R&W, pg 371 s.n. Raleigh, not dated. He will accept changes.

  25. Morgan Railey. Badge. (Fieldless) A dragon statant contourny per pale vert and azure.
  26. Nicholas the Falconer. New Name and Device. Argent, a falcon rising to sinister azure, belled Or, jessed sable, a bordure azure.
  27. “Nicholas” is found in Withycombe, page 227, s.n. Nicholas. This spelling is dated by citation to 1273. “Falconer” is found in R&W, page 161, this spelling not dated. He will not accept major changes and is most interested in having his name be authentic for the Norman language/culture. (Which probably means dropping the “of” or changing it to something like "le ffauconer", but that’s a Laurel call.)

  28. Patrick Olyveyr. Name.
  29. “Patrick” is found in Withycombe, page 228, under the heading “Patrick”, where it is said to have been common in the North of England from the 12th C. “Olyveyr” is found in R&W, page 329, under the heading “Oliver”, from the citation Robert Olyveyr, 1260 AssC. He will not accept major changes, cares most about the sound, and is interested in having his name be authentic for 12-14th century.

  30. Randal Carrick. Device Resubmission. Argent, three peacock feathers conjoined in base proper on a chief purpure a carrot Or.
  31. His name was registered in January of 2001 via the Outlands. His previous device, Argent, three peacock feathers conjoined in base proper on a chief purpure a carrot proper, was returned in October 2001 for using an orange carrot.

  32. Reinmar Heyden. Change of registered name.
  33. Due to a typo on the July 2001 Outlands LoI, his name was registered as “Reimar”. It was “Reinmar” on the forms and was always intended to be “Reinmar”, but since the CoA was not informed of this on the LoI or a letter of correction, and the typo was registerable using the same documentation, this becomes a change of registered name submission rather than a correction.

  34. Sabiha al-Zarqa. Device. Azure, a carrack in full sail pennons flying Or issuant from a trimount, a chief enarched and invected argent.
  35. Her name is in process on the December 17 2001 LoI. "With _very_ rare exceptions (e.g. in combination with enarched lines), the use of two or more complex lines on the same charge is confusing, and unattested in period armory. (Wavy raguly? Embattled rayonny? I think not.) In this case, the chief could be either embattled or triangular --- but not both." (Bruce Draconarius of Mistholme, LoAR December 1992, p. 20) So the use of both *enarched* and *invected* appears to be permissible here.

  36. Unser Hafen, Barony of. Badge. (Fieldless) On a portcullis vert a covered saltcellar Or.

I count 8 new names, 5 new devices, 4 new badges, 2 changes of registered name, and 1 change of registered device for a total of 20 new submissions and a check to Laurel for $80. In addition there were 2 device resubmissions and 1 badge resubmission.
