Return to the Rampart home page.

  1. Caterine d'Albret. New Badge. (Fieldless) Three fleurs-de-lys conjoined in pall inverted bases to center argent.

  2. Caerthe, Barony of
    Her name is currently in process on the November 2001 Outlands Letter of Intent.

  3. Cecily de Heselington. New Name.

  4. Caer Galen, Shire of
    "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.

  5. Diana of the Tulips. New Badge. (Fieldless) Four tulips gules slipped and singly leaved conjoined in saltire bases to center vert.

  6. Caerthe, Barony of
    Her name was registered in April of 1988 (via the Outlands). I see two possible problems with this badge. The first is that the blazon seems clumsy to me and does not adequately recreate the emblazon. The other is how thin the slips are. Are they thin enough to require a redraw?

  7. Jeanne-Marie Dubois. New Name.

  8. Caer Galen, Shire of
    "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.

  9. Kjalvor Eyjadatter. New Name.

  10. Caerthe, Barony of
    "Kjalvor" is found in Geirr Bassi, page 12. There is a hook under the "o". Eyja is in Geirr Bassi page 9. No documentation was provided and none could be found for the spelling variant "datter". She will not accept major changes and is interested in having her name be authentic for 10th-11th c. Viking.

  11. Malcolm Makalestyr. New Name and Device. Per pale vert and sable, six gouttes 3, 2, and 1 argent.

  12. al-Barran, Barony of
    "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.

  13. Meghan Ruadh nic Guinne. Change of registered device. Per pale vert and azure, three mullets in bend argent.

  14. Caerthe, Barony of
    Her name was registered in April of 1991 (via the Outlands). She has since used the patronymic particle "ni" rather than "nic" in all correspondence, including this submission. A correction for a previous submission in 1992 from "ni" to "nic" is even listed in the on-line O&A. If she wishes to have it officially changed she may do so, but that will require a change of name form. Her currently registered 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. She claims that this is a resubmission from a device sent to Kingom in late 1999. I have no records of that previous submission in the file. I do not have copies of the LoPR's and LoI's from Timothy's tenure.

  15. Michael of Ravenskeep. New Name and Device. Argent, a pile sable and overall a chevron counterchanged argent and vert.

  16. al-Barran, Barony of
    "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.

  17. Morgan Railey. New Name and Device. Per pall inverted azure, vert, and Or.

  18. al-Barran, Barony of
    "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.

  19. Morgan Railey. New Badge. (Fieldless) A dragon passant contourny per pale vert and azure.

  20. al-Barran, Barony of

  21. Nicholas the Falconer. New Name and Device. Argent, a falcon striking to sinister azure, belled Or, jessed sable, a bordure azure.

  22. Unser Hafen, Barony of
    "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.

  23. Patrick Olyveyr. New Name.

  24. Caer Galen, Shire of
    "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.

  25. Robert Blackhawk. New Badge. Azure, a chevron and a bordure argent.

  26. Hawk's Hollow, Canton of
    His name was registered in July of 1999 via the Outlands. His registered device is Azure, on a chevron argent two hawks striking addorsed sable, a bordure argent. This badge is just his device without the hawks, which makes it a much nicer piece of armory. Unfortunately it conflicts with the registered device of Diane von Dakerwald, April of 1989 via the West: Azure, a chevron argent between three fir trees couped Or, all within a bordure argent. 1 CD for removal of the secondary charge group, but that's all.

  27. Sabiha al-Zarqa. Device Resubmission (K). Azure, a carrack in full sail pennons flying Or issuant from a trimount, a chief enarched and invected argent.

  28. Unser Hafen, Barony of
    Her name is in process on the December 17 2001 LoI. Her previous device submission, Azure, a carrack in full sail pennons flying Or issuant from a trimount argent, was returned for conflict on the December 2001 Outlands Letter of Response.

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