East LoI dated 2016-11-30

Unto Andrewe Laurel, Brunissende Couronne, and Alys Pellicane, 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..

1: Alianora la Tesserande - New Device Change

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Alianora la tesserande in April of 2009, via the East.

Purpure, on a pile inverted Or, a peacock feather purpure

Old Item: Purpure, in pale two compass stars and in fess a decrescent and an increscent argent., to be released.

The February 2008 Cover Letter stated "We encourage piles to extend at least 85% the length of the shield; given the single, theoretical example of Legh, we will permit piles extending as little as 75% the length of the shield, but will consider them a step from period practice." Even if this is short enough to be considered an SFPP, it's only the one.


2: Ana Ximenez de Hume - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in March of 2007, via the East.

(Fieldless) On a flame gules a dandelion in seed slipped and leaved argent.


3: Andreiko Eferiev - New Device

Gules, a cloud sable within a bordure Or

This device is being submitted as an IAP for complex sable charges on a gules field surrounded by a high-contrast border in English heraldry.

Sable charges on gules are common:

http://www.bodley.ox.ac.uk/dept/scwmss/wmss/medieval/mss/lat/misc/e/086.htm - fol 38V-39R has "Sable, a cross formy gules" - probably not complex enough, but it's a start. This is a 15th Century English manuscript.

DBA I p 132: Gules, a lion Sable, STAUNTON LQ

DBA II p 144: Gules, a two-headed eagle Sable. SESARE, Julius RH 43; Ancestor iii 194.

Clouds are found in English heraldry:

DBA III p 77: Azure, 3 clouds Purpure radiated in base Or each surmounted with a triple crown Or caps Purpure surmounted with a roundel and cross formy Or. DRAPERS COMPANY of LONDON, 1H7 61.

During Kingdom commentary, one example of black charges on a red field with a high-contrast borudure was found: Sable, three mullets gules, a bordure engrailed Or (http://www.bodley.ox.ac.uk/dept/scwmss/wmss/medieval/jpegs/lat/misc/e/1500/08601030.jpg)

Commenters are asked to help further document this pattern when a high-contrast bordure is present.


4: Aoife inghean Donnchaidh - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Aoife is a standard spelling of a female Early Modern Irish given name found in Mari ingen Brian meic Donnchada's "Index of Names in Irish Annals" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Feminine/Aife.shtml) under Aífe / Aoife. This name is dated to 1227.

inghean Donnchaidh - daughter of Donnchadh.

Donnchaidh is one of the standardized Early Modern Irish genitive forms found in Mari's "Index of Names in Irish Annals" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Donnchad.shtml) under Donnchad / Donnchadh. This name is dated, among others, to 1254 and 1267. Donnchaidh does not lenite after 'inghean'


5: Benjamin le Rat - New Name & New Device

Sable, in pale a hand inverted Or and a rat statant argent

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Client requests authenticity for English.

Benjamin is a male given name found in "Late 16th C English Given Names" by Talan Gwynek (http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/eng16/eng16.html).

le Rat is a surname found in Reaney & Wilson s.n. Rat dated to 1334.


6: Brannoc of Mountain Freehold - New Name & New Device

Sable, a frying pan fesswise argent and a demi-sun issuant from base Or.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Sound (sounds like BRAN NOCK) most important.

Brannoc in this spelling is cited online as coming from the Oxford Dictionary of Saints, but not found in the Catholic Encyclopedia. It is also cited in this spelling in Woulfe's "Irish Names and Surnames", pg 231, s.n. Brannoc (header spelling). Though neither of these are currently considered reliable sources, this is the submitter's preferred spelling.

If the submitter's preferred spelling cannot be registered, they will accept Brannock which is is found on Family Search Database.

Brannock Gilbart; Male; Marriage; 30 Sept 1572; Devon England; Batch M05041-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N2V2-LVH)

Mountain Freehold is a registered SCA branch, originally the Barony (registered 1981) and now Shire (changed 2016)

Kingdom commenters were unable to find the preferred spelling.


7: Brigid nyn Thomas O'Neill - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Client requests authenticity for Irish.

Brigid is a female given name found in Family Search

Brigid Barber; Female; Marriage; 17 Jan 1591; Kent, England; Batch M01525-0 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NNC2-828).

O'Neill appears in "Names Found in Anglicized Irish Documents" by Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada s.n. Shane 1583 (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnglicizedIrish/).

Mari's article contains examples of women using O-style bynames, and of bynames using O'

English and Anglicized Irish are part of the same language group in Appendix C.

Note: This name was submitted as Brigid O'Neill which had a conflict. As per a conversation with Alys Ogress, submitter allowed the addition of a patronymic byname to clear the conflict.

The pattern of female given name + patronymic + O-style byname is found in Mari's "Names from Anglicized Irish Documents" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnglicizedIrish/Feminine.shtml). Examples include:

Anstace nyne James O Murroghe (1601)

Annable nyn Irriell O Farrall (1598-9)

Ellyn nyn Teige O Donevan (1601)

Ewlyn nyen Dermott O Toole (1598)

The exact patronymic byname nyn Thomas appears in the same article in the name of Joan nyn Thomas (1601), found s.n. Joan.


8: Calin Macsalny - New Badge

9: Conchobar mac Óengusa - New Name & New Device

Per bend vert and azure, in sinister chief a wolf salient argent.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound (First name like Connor) most important.

Conchobar is a middle Irish given name found in Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada's "Index of Names in Irish Annals" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Conchobar.shtml) with Annals dates of 935, 965, 973, 979, 1089, 1104, 1122, 1126.

mac is the Gaelic patronymic marker per Appendix A of SENA

Óengusa is the middle Irish genitive form of the male given name Óengus/Áengus which is found in Mari's "Index" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Oengus.shtml) dated to 967, 1085.


10: Cristina da Treviso - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Meaning (First name most important.) most important.

Cristina is a femal give name dated to 1427 in "A Listing of all Women's Given Names from the Condado Section of the Florence Catasto of 1427" by Juliana de Luna (Julia Smith)(http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/juliana/condado/womensalpha.html)

da Treviso is a locative byname found in 14th Century Venice. "Fourteenth Century Venetian Personal Names" by Arval Benicoeur and Talan Gwynek (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/arval/venice14/).


11: Daithi Dubh - New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2012, via the East.

Vert, a dragon segreant between three mullets voided and interlaced within and conjoined to annulets argent.


12: Donnchadh mac Eóin - New Name

mac is the patronymic marker for "son"

Eoin is an Early Modern Irish male given name found in Mari's "Index"(http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Eoin.shtml) as the genitive form of a male given name found from 13th-16th centuries.

The accented form is found in the Annals, "Mac Eóin Bisétt" dated 1442.

If necessary to clear conflict, client would like to add Ó hUiginn. Woulfe, 576, lists this as a variant form of Ó Huige, with O Higgin as an italicized form dated to the reign of Elizabeth.


13: East, Kingdom of the - New Heraldic Title

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 1973, .

Golden Lyre Herald

All substantive elements are grandfathered to the submitter which registered Golden Lyre, Award of the on the June 2013 LoAR via the East.


14: Edmund Forster - New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2015, via the East.

Azure, a camel statant contourny Or, on a chief wavy argent three thistle heads purpure.


15: Edwyn le Clerc - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name on the East LoI of January 31, 2016 as Edwyn Le Clerc.

Argent, an open book and in chief a feather fesswise quill to dexter within a bordure wavy azure.


16: Elspeth Scot - New Name & New Device

Vert, in canton a capital letter E and a gore sinister argent

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Sound most important.

Elspeth is a female given name found in "15th Century Scots Names from Dunfermline," by Aryanhwy merch Catlael dated to 1447.(http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/scots/dunfermline/)

Scot is found in Black s.n. Scot dated to 1395 as an unmarked surname.

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

We believe that this hand is an artificial uncial. Examples can be seen here: http://www.lancaster.ac.uk/users/yorkdoom/palweb/week05/palwk5ba.htm


17: Erin inghean Chonchobhair - New Name & New Device

Per saltire purpure and Or, in saltire a mallet and a needle inverted sable.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Sound (Keep) most important.

Erin is an English female given name found in "Something Rich and Strange:'Undocumentable' Names From The IGI Parish Records" by Alys Mackyntoich (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/SomethingRichandStrange.html) s.n. Erin dated to 1584 and 1634.

inghean is the Early Modern Irish patronymic marker.

Chonchobhair is the lenited Early Modern Irish form for Conchobhar. Conchobhar is an Early Modern Irish given name found in Mari ingen Brian meic Donnchada's "Index of Names in Irish Annals" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Conchobar.shtml) found 26 times between 1200 and 1603.

English and Gaelic can be combined under Appendix C.

Kingdom commenters were concerned about the identifiability of the sable charges that were partially on the purpure field. We find them sufficiently identifiable to forward for wider commentary.


18: Eyfríðr Einarsdóttir - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Spelling (Given name.) most important.

Eyfríðr is a female given name found in the list of Old Norse Women's given names on the site of Viking Answer Lady (http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/ONWomensNames.shtml) s.n. Eyfríðr

Einarsdóttir is a patryonmic byname from Einarr found in Geirr Bassi, p. 8. The -rr becomes -rs to form the genitive.


19: Fionnghuala Cláirseóir - New Name & New Device

Azure, four swans naiant two and two argent.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Meaning (Fionnghuala the Harper) most important.

Fionnghuala is a female given name dated to 1301 in Mari ingen Brian meic Donnchada's "Index of Names in Irish Annals" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Feminine/Fionnghuala.shtml)

Cláirseóir is occupational byname meaning "harper" found in the Electronic Dictionary of the Irish Language (http://www.dil.ie/9346).

A much earlier byname meaning "harper," Cruittire, is found in Mari's "Index of Names in Irish Annals" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/DescriptiveBynames/Cruittire.shtml). The submitter therefore believes that Cláirseóir is a reasonable Early Modern Irish byname.

Submitter prefers Cláirseóir over Cruittire, and would like a feminine form of the byname if it can be documented.

Kingdom commenters were unable to determine whether the byname is required to be feminine, and if it is how to form it. We are forwarding this name for wider commentary.


20: Giana di Nicholo da Firenze - New Device Change

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Giana di Nicholò da Firenze in January of 2016, via the East.

Argent, a bend sinister vert, overall a wyvern erect sable.

Old Item: Vert, on a pile indented argent an owl's head cabossed sable., to be released.

Kingdom commenters were concerned with a possible conflict with the device of Charles the Traveler, West, January 1995 LoAR: Argent, a bend sinister vert, overall a drakkar sable its sail paly gules and argent. There is a DC for change of type of the overall charge. We are not certain if there is a DC for the change of tincture.

We believe that a sail should be considered at least one half of the charge, and therefore a tincture DC should be granted. There is a very old precedent to the contrary:

Returning [Fieldless] A lymphad gules sail set argent.

Conflict with Noble (Papworth, p. 1089), Or a galley, sails furled and oars in action, gules, flags azure; Neville (Combo II, from Fox-Davies p. 127), A ship; Both (Woodward, p. 370), Argent, a boat gules, and Wolfo (Papworth, p. 1089), Or, a boat gules. In each case, there is one CD for fieldlessness, but nothing for changing the tincture of the sail. [Daibhidh Ruadh MacLachlan, R-Middle, May 1994 LoAR] http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/1994/05/lar.html

We were unable to find a more recent precedent and believe it is incorrect. Therefore, we are forwarding this device for a ruling by Wreath.


21: Godiva de la Mer - New Name & New Device

Azure, a heart sable irradiated argent.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Spelling (Spelling of Godiva) most important.

Godiva is a female given name found in Talan Gwynek "Feminine Given Names in A Dictionary of English Surnames" (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/reaneyAG.html) s.n. Godiva dated to 1200 and 1235.

de la Mer is a locative byname found in "French Surnames from Paris, 1421, 1423, & 1438", by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/french/paris1423surnames.html) dated to 1438.

The submitter is mixing an English given name and a French surname allowable per SENA, Appendix C, as long as the elements are within 300 years.

Kingdom commenters pointed out that a sable heart on an azure field does not have sufficient contrast. However, we have previously registered, without comment, Per pale gules and azure, an open book sable irradiated Or [Engelhardt Bauernfeind, A-Caid, July 2009 LoAR]. In commentary for that item, Bruce Batonvert provided the following documentation:

"In the cases I've seen, the irradiation always had good contrast with the background, whether the irradiated charge did or not. A good illustration of this is the standard of Edward IV, as found in the Book of Standards, c.1520: divided azure and gules, with roses gules irradiated Or on the azure half and roses argent irradiated Or on the gules half. We also have the example of the arms of the Earl of Warwick as shown in the Warwick Roll, c.1480, Argent, a cross crosslet Or irradiated gules entwined by a serpent vert. So it would seem that charges could be irradiated so as to enhance contrast, though it doesn't appear to have been universal. (Oh, the Book of Standards also gives us an example of a unicorn irradiated, so complex charges could be treated this way as well.) Sources: de Walden, Badges, Banners and Standards from a Tudor Manuscript, p.61; Heralds' Commemorative Exhibition, 1934, plate xxv."

Another exmaple can be found here: "Vert, a human heart gules irradiated or" from BSB Cod. Icon 391, Folio 18V. http://coblaith.net/Heraldry/Crosses/irradheart.jpg

Given the prior registration and the period examples, we are forwarding this device for a ruling.


22: Godiva de la Mer - New Badge

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

(Fieldless) Two natural seahorses azure and Or respectant tails knowed.


23: Gregor the Vigilant - New Name & New Device

Argent, on a bend sable between a brown bull's head cabossed and a cardinal proper, three Maltese crosses palewise argent

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Meaning most important.

Gregor is a male given name found in R&W, s.n. Greggor, Gregor: Robert son of Gregor c1240; John son of Gregor 1332.

the Vigilant is a descriptive byname. "Vigilant" - The (old print) Oxford Universal English Dictionary, v. X TOL-ZYM, p. 2356, cites vigilant "Wakeful and watchful" to 1480. The online OED dates the same to a. 1500.

In registering Godfrey the Vigilant in Oct. 2010 Pelican noted "Godfrey Vigil would be a lovely early 12th c. name (Reaney and Wilson s.n. Wake). But Vigilant is a period word, and given the use of bynames with similar meanings (as the attested Vigil), it is registerable." Name pattern according to Appendix A - English (Given + Byname)

There is an SFPP for the use of the New World cardinal, but we believe that it is just the one.

Kingdom commenters were concerned about whether the bull's head was black or brown. A close examination of the color emblazon makes it clear the bull's head is brown. The color corrector picked up at least some brown, so we are forwarding this device in the hopes that this will be sufficient.


24: Gwenllian ferch Llewellyn ap Henry - New Name & New Device

Purpure, a domestic cat sejant contourny and a chief rayonny Or.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Client requests authenticity for Welsh.

Gwenllian is a female give name found in "Women's Names in the First Half of 16th Century Wales" by Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/welshfem16/given.html)

ferch Llewellyn meaning "daughter of" Llewellyn found in Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn, "Women's Names in the First Half of 16th Century Wales" (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/welshfem16/welshWomen16.html), under "Elements Appearing in Women's Surnames"

ap Henry meaning "son of" Henry dated to 1552 in "Some 16th & 17th C Welsh Masculine Names" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/welsh/welsh.html)


25: Hallbjorn Tryggvason - New Name

Hallbjǫrn is given name found in The Old Norse Name, p. 10. The submitter prefers the form without the o-ogonek.

Tryggvason is a patronymic byname from the given name Tryggvi found in The Old Norse Name, p. 15, as a given name. According to Geirr Bassi, this is the correct form for the patronymic.


26: Hallveig Alfarinsdóttir - New Name & New Device

Argent, a reremouse inverted sable maintaining in its feet a spear fesswise point to dexter and on a chief azure a crescent in sinister Or.

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Hallveig is a female given name appearing 9 times in the Landnamabok according to Geirr Bassi pg. 11

Alfarinsdóttir is a patronymic byname from Alfrarinn found in the Landnamabook according to Geirr Bassi pg 7.

The most recent registration of a reremouse inverted stated:

"Reremice are also known as bats displayed. Bats inverted are registerable, by precedent:

Therefore, there is a step from period practice for the use of a reremouse inverted." [Emelyn de Chelseye, A-Middle, Mar 2010 LoAR]

However, the general precedent against inverted animals has been more recently and consistently upheld, most recently on the June 2016 LoAR. We believe this should be registerable, with an SFPP.


27: Isaac Klingensmith ofÆthelmearc - New Name & New Device

Argent, a raven rising sable maintaining with its beak an annulet gules.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No changes.

Isaac Klingensmith is his legal name as appearing on his driver's license, attested by Melodia Beaupel Garnet Herald and Elsbeth Anne Roth Rulffeld.

Æthelmearc is a registered SCA group.


28: John fitz Thomas - New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Client requests authenticity for 14th century England.
Meaning (English - John son of Thomas ; if change neccessary, would want a locative for Hertedon (cited in Ch) most important.

John is an English given name found in R&W sn John - Thomas John is dated to 1279.

Thomas is an English given name found in R&W in the same entry listed above.

The name John fitz Thomas fits "the pattern [fitz] + [father's name] for marked patronymics as found in Appendix A of SENA for Middle and Early Modern English names."

We believe that the submitted name does not conflict with Johan Fitztomas (A-Trimaris, Apr 2003 LoAR)under SENA PN3.C.2 Substantial Change to one Syllable, because of the additional syllable in Johan.


29: Molly Blythe - New Name Change & New Badge

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in August of 2003, via the East.

Muirenn ingen Dúnadaig of Concordia (EK) at 2016-08-08 20:08:35 (Reply) Is that "13 roundels in annulo argent"? An annulet is not a roundel... Muirenn ingen Dúnadaig of Concordia (EK) at 2016-08-09 08:04:22 (Reply) Commenters question the specific nu
