East LoI dated 2016-08-31

Unto Andrewe Laurel, Lillia Pellycan, Brunissende Couronne, and Alys Soon-to-be-Pelicane, from Yehuda Blue Tyger, greetings!

It is the intent of the College of Heralds of the East Kingdom to register the following items. Unless otherwise noted, the submitter has no desire for authenticity and allows any changes.

This item was on the 11-2016 LoAR

1: Adrienne d'Evreus - Resub Device

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Adrienne d'Evreus in December of 2014, via the East.

Azure, a fleur-de-lys argent and a bordure gules.

The submitter's previous device, Per fess wavy azure and argent, a seahorse counterchanged, was returned on the Sept. 6, 2014 East Kingdom Letter of Decision, due to conflict with the badge of the Order of the Hippocampus in the Kingdom of Atlantia (02/2000): (Fieldless) A seahorse erect argent tailed azure. This resubmission is a complete redesign.

The submitter provided documentation in support of an Individually Attested Pattern of red bordures on blue fields in French heraldry. The specific IAP pattern being documented is "A red bordure on a blue field surrounding a single complex inanimate charge".

Multiple examples of are found in the Armorial le Breton, which contains armory from the 13th through 15th centuries:

Azure, three fleurs-de-lys Or, a bordure gules (http://www.culture.gouv.fr/Wave/image/archim/0008/dafanch06_a103502n00009_2.htm)
Azure, semy-de-lys Or, a bordure gules (http://www.culture.gouv.fr/Wave/image/archim/0008/dafanch06_a103502n00015_2.htm)
Azure fretty argent, a bordure gules (http://www.culture.gouv.fr/Wave/image/archim/0008/dafanch06_a103502n00042_2.htm)
Azure, a tower Or, a bordure gules(http://www.culture.gouv.fr/Wave/image/archim/0008/dafanch06_a103502n00042_2.htm)

While the three fleurs-de-lys and the semy-de-lys devices may be considered non-independent, both being cadenced arms of France (likely the arms of the Dukes of Normandy), at least three independent examples are provided.

The same examples also demonstrate the use of plain-line uncharged bordures and fleurs-de-lys in French heraldry.

The submitter's documentation provides additional examples, but they are not necessary to support the IAP.

This item was on the 11-2016 LoAR

3: Cailleach Dhé ingen Chiaráin - New Name & New Device

Per pale argent and sable, two cats sejant respectant counterchanged and on a chief azure three triquetras argent

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Sound (sounds like 'Kileigh') most important.
Language (15th century) most important.
Culture (15th century) most important.

Cailleach Dhé is a compound female given name found in Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada's "Index of Names in Irish Annals" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Feminine/CailleachDhe.shtml) dated to 1211.

ingen Chiaráin is a pre-1200 Gaelic patronymic, based on the genitive form of the male given name Ciaráin, which is also found in Mari's "Index" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Ciaran.shtml) with a latest Annals date of 1061. Because Gaelic grammar requires C to lenite after ingen, the spelling of the father's name has been changed to Chiaráin.

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2000, via Æthelmearc.

This item was on the 11-2016 LoAR

5: Ciar of Skye - New Name & New Device

Or, a fox salient proper and a gore sable

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Spelling (as submitted) most important.

Ciar is a female saint's name found in OCM p. 51 s.n. Ciar. Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada's "Index of Names in Irish Annals" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Feminine/Ciar.shtml) dates this name to the late 7th century.

of Skye is the Lingua Anglica form of a place known in period. Johnston, Place Names of Scotland p. 268 s.n. Skye gives the spelling <Scia> dated to c. 700. Johnston is a no-photocopy source, but it is also available on line at: https://books.google.com/books?id=QfEKZEKzWbwC

There is an SFPP for the use of a gore with another charge.

8: Hermina de Pagan - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the East LoI of August 31, 2015 as submitted.

Gules, a skeletal hand sustaining three roses in sheaf argent

This is a resubmission of a return on the November 2015 LoAR, which stated:

This device is returned for using so-called "garden rosebuds". Per repeated precedent:

This device is returned for the use of a garden rosebud, which has not been registerable since November 1994:

Commentary was nearly as strong in favor of banning garden rosebuds from armory. Consequently, we will accept whatever garden rosebuds may be in LoIs issued before December 1994, but no further registrations of this charge will be made. (CL 11/94)

A garden rosebud is a garden rose with the petals closed, which describes the charge in chief. [ Diane Daunt, March 2009, R-West ]

All roses should be depicted affronty, with their petals fully laid out on the page, instead of cupped like a tulip.

As redrawn, the flowers here are "garden roses", an unblazoned artistic variant which carries an SFPP. [Sabrina de la Bere, A-West, Feb 2016 LoAR]

11: Lillia de Vaux - New Household Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2006, via the East.

Bleu Crampette Inn

No major changes.
Language (Middle or Early Modern English, 14th-16th C) most important.
Culture (Middle or Early Modern English, 14th-16th C) most important.

Bleu is a Middle English form of "blue", with this spelling found in the MED, s.v. bleu: ?a1500 Henslow Recipes (Henslow) 4/4: To make bleu water. Take clene floreye [etc.]. The spelling blewe (also found in the MED between the 14th and 15th centuries and in the inn-sign name article below) is also acceptable to the submitter as well.

Crampette is the chape of the scabbard of the sword, occasionally used as a heraldic charge (OED, s.v. crampet): 1489 Wardr. Acc. In Fairholt (1885) II. 136, ij crampettes for the king's sword. 1515 Will of R. West (Somerset Ho.), My best goblet with a cover with Crampettes upon the knopp. Crampets are a heraldic charge also found in the online PicDic (http://mistholme.com/s=crampet), born for example, by Lord de la Warr, c. 1520

Inne ("inn") and the pattern of [substantive element (usually a place name)] + Inne also found in the MED, s.v. In: (1437-8) Reg.Chanc.Oxf.in OHS 93 26: Iohannes Austell..conuictus est..super pertubacione pacis per depositionem Willelm Alwkye de Peckewater Inne, Symonis mancipii de Bekis Inne.

The inn-sign name pattern [object]+[color] is found in "Comparison of Inn/Shop/House names found Lond 1473-1600 with those found in the ten shires surrounding Lond in 1636" by Margaret Makafee (http://contrib.andrew.cmu.edu/~grm/signs-1485-1636.html). Examples include Blew(e) garlande, Red harrow and Golden ancore, all dated 1485-1600.

12: Magdalena von Kirschberg - New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2005, via the East.

Per pale azure and gules, on a chevron Or three springs of two cherries gules slipped and leaved vert

This device was submitted as a resub, with no indication of whether it was a Kingdom or Laurel return. The only return we found was a kingdom return for redraw from 2004. However, the submitter indicated that the original device Per pale azure and gules, two chevronels Or, was returned for conflict with Henri Guiscard (March 2005, Lochac): Quarterly gules and sable, two chevronels Or, with just one DC for changes to the field.

This re-submission changes the number of chevrons and adds tertiary charges to clear the conflict.

Unless evidence of a Laurel return is found, we are treating this as a Kingdom return with money due to Laurel.

13: Millicent Rowan - New Device

OSCAR finds the name on the East LoI of March 31, 2016 as submitted.

This item was on the 11-2016 LoAR

14: Sanceline de Bassan - New Name & New Device

Per saltire azure and argent, a saltire indented between two silk moths Or and two mulberry trees azure

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Sound (unspecified) most important.
Language (unspecified) most important.
Culture (unspecified) most important.

Consulting Herald: Andreas Lucernensis

Sanceline is a female given name found in "An Index to the Given Names in the 1292 Census of Paris" by Colm Dubh (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paris.html#S).

Bassan appears as a name of a castle ("Chasteau de Bassan") on p. 158 of Histoire du Chevalier: Bayard Lieutenent General pour le Roy . . . (https://books.google.com/books?id=gLu1RbVGPi8C) published in 1616 in French, describing events that took place between 1489 and 1524. Therefore, as it is recorded in French, Bassan can be treated as French, placing the elements within 500 years. de Bassan is the expected locative form.

The submitter provided an article concerning the history of silk worms and moths.


This item was on the 11-2016 LoAR

15: Þórin Úlfsson - New Name & New Device

Azure, a dragon and a stallion combatant argent

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Meaning (Thorin Wolf's Son) most important.

Þórin - Fellows-Jensen, Scandinavian Personal Names in Lincolnshire and Yorkshire cites a Grunekell f. Thorin. This shows Thorin as a Latinized Norse name 1066-69. [Thorin Ó Séaghdha vörðr, 2/2008 LoAR, A-Caid].

Úlfr is a male given name found in Geirr Bassi's The Old Norse Name at p. 15.

Submitted as Þórin Úlfrson, Kingdom commenters pointed out that the patronym is not correctly formed as submitted. The 'r' in Úlfr should drop and there should be two 's' not one: Úlfsson. Fortunately, the submitter allows all changes so we made this change.


This item was on the 11-2016 LoAR

16: Þórin Úlfsson - New Alternate Name & New Badge

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

Lucas Merrick

Argent, on a pile sable, a Maltese cross argent, a bordure sable and overall a label gules

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Meaning (unspecified) most important.

Lucas was documented by the submitter using the Legal Name Allowance, but no proof of the submitter's legal name was provided. Fortunately, Kingdom commenters were able to document it from FamilySearch records to within 20 years of the byname:

Lucas Williamson Male; Marriage; 22 Feb 1567; St Botolph Aldgate, London, England; Batch M00080-3 https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NJQQ-4Z2

Merrick is a 16th century English surname:

Grigory Merrick; Male; Burial; 07 Sep 1588; St. Martin, Salisbury, Wiltshire, England; B05876-8 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JDQ7-TZ6)
Davy Merrick; Male; Marriage; 15 Jan 1561; Saint Peter Westcheap, London, London, England; Batch: M02275-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NKGR-MQG)

We are told that the submitter's grandfather, Aaron of the Black Mountains, has given permission to conflict with his device, Argent, on a pile sable a Maltese cross argent, a bordure counterchanged, registered in March of 1994 via An Tir. A letter of permission to conflict is supposed to be forthcoming. The letter was not received prior to the publication of this Letter of Intent, but we are forwarding this badge in the hope that it is received prior to the decision.

The label is barely overall, with most of it found on the pile, not on the field. However, it may be argued that this follows a period pattern of the use of labels by simply placing a label over an existing field. We are therefore forwarding this badge for wider commentary from the College.

17: Úlfeiðr Artudóttir - New Name & New Device

Sable, two ravens respectant and in base a wolf couchant argent

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Client requests authenticity for unspecified.
Language (unspecified) most important.
Culture (unspecified) most important.

Úlfeiðr is a female given name found in Geir Bassi, p.15.

Arta is masculine given name found in Nordiskt runnamnslexikon (Dictionary of Names from Old Norse Runic Inscriptions) by Lena Peterson s.n. Arta. Submitted as "Artadóttir", Kingdom Commenters pointed out that Arta in the genitive would become Artu, hence Artudóttir would be the expected patronymic. We have made this change.
