West LoI dated 2016-11-16

Unto Master Andrewe Bawldwyn, Laurel; Mistress Alys Mackyntoich, Pelican; Dame Brunissende Dragonette, Wreath; and the various members of the College of Arms, greetings from Viscountess Krysta of Starfall, Green Crown Pursuivant of the Kingdom of the West!

It is the intent of the West Kingdom that the following be registered.

1: Aine Redmond and David of the Wode - Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name (Aine Redmond) registered exactly as it appears in August of 2014, via the West.
OSCAR finds the name (David of the Wode) registered exactly as it appears in August of 2003, via Caid.

(Fieldless) A triquetra vert interlaced with a triangle inverted voided argent

The previous submission was returned by Laurel on the August 2014 LoAR: "Aine Redmond and David of the Wode. Joint badge. (Fieldless) A triangle inverted voided interlaced with a triquetra Or. This badge is returned for conflict with Israel ibn Jacob, Paly wavy of twelve sable and argent, a star of David Or. The voided and interlaced charges here are visually equivalent to a star of David which leaves only one DC for the change from fielded to fieldless design."

This change of tincture of the interlaced charges from "Or" to "Argent and vert" clears the called conflict.

Aurifaber - A Simple Guide to Constructing 13th Century Welsh Names"by Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn (Heather Rose Jones) [http://heraldry.sca.org/names/welsh13.html] as Aurifarber (L) meaning Goldsmith.

5: Justin Brennan Dickson - New Name & New Device

Per bend sinister vert and azure, a rose argent, a bordure argent semy of thistles sable.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Client requests authenticity for 16th century English/Scottish.
Sound (none noted) most important.

Submitter cares about the sound of the name (none noted) and that it's male, and requests authenticity for 16th centry English/Scottish. All changes OK.

Justin - Found in Withycombe, p. 185. Justin Whitman was baptized in 1639, in South Leigh, Oxfordshire. According to SENA GP.3, "The use of a name element by a human being during the grey period is generally sufficient to allow this use, even if it is the name of an infant." The grey period is 1600-1650. There are also multiple entries for "Justin" in FamilySearch with death/burial dates from 1562 to 1605 (for example, Justin Conaway, buried 1605, St. Peter, Kent, England; Batch No. I05765-6)

Brennan - Found on FamilySearch, showing Thomas Brennan, marriage dated 1625: "England Marriages, 1538-1973 ," database, FamilySearch [https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N6D9-RMW] Thomas Brennan and Anice Burt, 1625; citing , Romsey, Hampshire, England, reference 2:G3KHMR; FHL microfilm 1,041,215. Batch No. M13669-2

Dickson - Reaney & Wilson p. 134, under the header [Dickson]. Thom Dicson 1307, John Diksson, Dikson 1332, Nicholas Dyxon 1425, Robert Dixson 1429. On the same, page, under the header [Dickenson] are more variations on the spelling of the [Dick-] part of the name, including Gilbert Dyckenson 1585. The latter shows the use of "ck" in at least one name in this period. Given the many spelling variations, [Dickson] seems a reasonable spelling for the late 16th century. Also found in this spelling in FamilySearch, as the surname of Roger Dickson, male, christened 1574 in Crowle, Lincoln, England, Batch: C01198-0.

The late period English name formation [given+ byname + byname] is found in SENA Appendix A.
