Unto the Sovereigns and members of the College of Arms of the Society, does Randal Carrick, Rampart Herald send his greetings. What follows is the November Letter of Intent for the Kingdom of the Outlands. I would like to thank the following heralds for providing commentary for this letter: Furukusu Masahide, Aspen Pursuivant; Francesca di Pavia, Ray de Soleil Pursuivant; Mistress Lijsbet van de Visschereye; Symon Cranmere; Marie de Blois, White Stag Principal Herald; Ă­eluulf munuc, Fretty Herald; Sorcha MacLeod; Llywus ap Alan, Weel Herald; Jibra'il `Attar; and Gawain of Miskbridge, Green Anchor Herald.

It is my intent to register this November the following Items from the Outlands College of Heralds:

1: Elionora Brenan - New Name (Correct) (Comment) & New Device (Correct) (Comment)

Per chevron azure and argent, two oak leaves Or and a mullet of five points voided and interlaced within and conjoined to an annulet sable

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Language (16th C. Anglo-Irish) most important.
Culture (16th C. Anglo-Irish) most important.

[Elionora] - "Names and Naming Practices in the Fitzwilliam Accounts from 16th Century Ireland" by Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn (http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/lateirish/fitzwilliam.html) cites one example of this woman's given name in this spelling in the accounts of the Anglo-Irish Fitzwilliam family for the five-year period from 1560 to 1565. (These are primarily payment records, and document the names of individuals in the society who owe to the family or are owed by the family.)

[Brenan] - "Names and Naming Practices in the Fitzwilliam Accounts from 16th Century Ireland" by Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn (http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/lateirish/fitzwilliam.html) cites one example of this Anglicized/Irishized version of the Gaelic patronymic BrÚanainn. The cited example of the individual bearing this surname, Edmoundo Brenan, uses a Gaelic-origin patronymic and a non Gaelic-origin given name. Names of this sort in this sort do not take a patronymic particle (mac or ˇ)

Blazon originally submitted as Per chevron azure and argent, two oak leaves Or and a pentacle sable, this was changed at Kingdom to Per chevron azure and argent, two oak leaves Or and a mullet of five points voided and interlaced within and conjoined to an annulet sable. Pentacles as blazoned above are now allowed charges per Laurel's ruling in the September 2009 LoAR.

5: Stephen Axtell - Resub Device (Correct) (Comment)

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2008, via the Outlands.

Per pale gules and azure, an arm couped embowed sustaining an axe Or

 

Submitter's previous device, Per pale azure and gules, an arm fesswise couped embowed maintaining an axe bendwise sinister Or , was returned by Laurel on the June 2008 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/heraldry/loar/2008/06/08-06lar.html), stating: "This depiction of an axe blurs the distinction between maintained and sustained charges, which is grounds for return. Treating the axe as a maintained charge, the submitted device conflicts with the armory of Piedro Vega y Garcia de Barcelona, Sable, an infant's arm couped at the shoulder, fesswise embowed Or, maintaining an apple proper. If the axe were clearly drawn as a sustained charge, it would clear this conflict, though others may be introduced."

Previous device emblazon can be found here: http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/2007-12-lop/0712emblazons.html. Submitter has re-drawn the device to make both the arm and the axe larger.


Respectfully submitted,

Baron Randal Carrick, Rampart Herald
