Middle ILoI dated 2012-02-22

Greetings unto THL Kriemhilt von Ebersberg, Dragon Herald, Meister Konrad Mailander, Rouge Scarpe Herald, and the commenting members of the Midrealm College of Heralds; from Thegn Edward Aelredson, Interim Escutcheon Herald.

Herein please find submissions received in January 2012. Unless noted, clients will accept a holding name.

All comments are due to Rouge Scarpe and Dragon by March 25, 2012.

1: Brigitta the Weaver -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 2011, via the Middle

Vert fretty argent, on a chief argent three ivy leaves vert

Originally "Plain English" blazon given as "Left side: white background 3 green ivy leaves in a verticle row, right side: green background white fretty", submitted Aug 2010 and returned Nov 2010 at Kingdom for violating RfS XI. 3.b.

3. Marshalling. - Armory that appears to marshall independent arms is considered presumptuous.


2: Duncan Sinclair the Cordwainer -Resub Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.

Originally submitted as 'Duncan Sinclair', returned November 2011 for conflict with Phillip MacDuncan Sinclair.

Sinclair - A Dictionary of Engliah and Welsh Surnames: With Special American Instances - pgs 183,691,692,665,726,677,715,677 & 667

Duncan - A Dictionary of Engliah and Welsh Surnames: With Special American Instances - pgs 568,257,441,249 & 623

Duncan - Place Names of Scotland - pgs xxxviii, lxx, 61 & 191

Duncan - Onomasticon anglo-saxonicum - pgs 172,416,548 & 528

Cordwainer - Reaney & Wilson; p 110 under s.n. Cordner, Codner has the dated forms : Raulf de Cordewan 100-30, Richard Cordewaner 1170, Walter Lecordewaner 1173, Maurice le corduaner 1221, Bartholomew le Cordenewaner 1281

"Index of Scots Names Found in the Dictionary of the Older Scottish Tongue" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/scots/dost/) has 14 citations of <Duncan> between 1379 and 1619 and 8 citations of <Sinclair> between 1502 and 1613


3: Kenrick Harper -New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Client requests authenticity for 1400's, 1500's Eng, Wales, Cornwall.
Sound (Ken - rick) most important.
Meaning (meaning "harper") most important.

[R&W] s.n. Kenrick, dated that spelling to 1613 as a given name in <Kenrick Evans>. Does not want Kendrick (-dr) sound.

[Bardsley] s.n. Harper, gives <Willelmus Harper> and <Rogerus Harper>dated to 1379


4: Linden le Bukere -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 2008, via the Middle

(Fieldless) On a linden leaf vert, an open book argent

Returned August of 2010 for a redraw. From that letter:

(Fieldless) A linden leaf vert and overall an open book argent.

Blazoned on the Letter of Intent as "On a leaf, a book", that would require the book to be entirely surrounded by the outline and tincture of the leaf.

This badge is returned because the overall book nearly entirely obscures the leaf. Section VIII.3 of the Rules for Submissions says that "Elements must be used in a design so as to preserve their individual identifiability." The leaf does not remain identifiable in this design.


4: Lyse von de Beke -New Name & New Device

Per bend sinister gules and sable, in dexter a compass rose Or and in sinister a chevron inverted of pheons Or truncated to dexter

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Sound most important.
Language most important.
Culture (German part of Switzerland) most important.

Submitter is fine with any changes needed to 'de', including dropping it.

'Lyse' is a feminine name found in Talan Gwynek;s "15th Century German Woman's Names" (http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/germ15f.html)

'von de Beke' is based on <over de Beke> 1422 found in Bahlow (Gentry) s.n. Ober.


5: Lyse von de Beke -New Augmentation of Arms

OSCAR finds the name on the Middle LoI of April 20, 2012 as submitted.

Per bend sinister gules and sable, in dexter a compass rose Or and in sinister a chevron inverted of pheons Or truncated to dexter and for augmentation in canton a caliper Or

Royal Augmentation of Arms : A pair of calipers Or, given 08/12/2010 by Radigisus and Ceinwen (Middle)

Name and device are submited on this letter.


6: Mihajlo of Nekche -Resub Name & Resub Device

Per pale vert and sable, a lion's head cabossed Or and a chief chequey gules and argent

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Language (Croatian) most important.
Culture (Croatian) most important.

Originally submited April 2009 via Middle.

This item was lost in Kingdom several times. The College wishes to express its sincerest apologies to the client.

'Mihajlo' is found in "Early Croatian Given Names" by Brian R Speer (http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/croat.html) as a name found between 1250 and 1526. Speer also states that "bynames or surnames of this time include patronymics, but also with tribal identity and city of origin or residence."

While submitter would prefer a Croatian form to using "of", we have found about seven different words that mean "of" or "from" in Croatian. Rather than use the incorrect form, we will accept the Lingua Anglica variant.

Nekche is the medieval name of the modern Croatian city of Nasice. Nasice.com (http://nasice.com.hr/wiki/ONasicama) lists the city first named in 1229.


7: William de Clayton -New Name & New Device

Gyronny gules and Or,a bordure counterchanged

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No holding name.
No changes.

The client will NOT accept a holding name.

<William> - http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/talan/eng13/eng13m.html From Medieval Names Archive "Men's Given Names From Early 13th Century England" by Talan Gwynek (Brian M Scott)

<de Clayton> - "The Baronetage of England : or the History of the English Baronets, and Such Baronets of Scotland, as are English Families; with Genealogical Tables and Engravings of their Coats of Arms" VOL III by William Bethem; published 1803 by Burell and Bransby.
