2: Kate de Mallow - New Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Northshield LoI of October 31, 2016 as submitted.

Gyronny arrondi argent and purpure, a bordure sable

Submission History: Previous submission 'Gyronny arrondy of eight argent and purpure, a chief sable' on the September 2016 Northshield LoI was returned due to conflict with Lyneya de Aston, reg. 3/05 via Meridies 'Gyronny purpure and argent, on a chief sable two escallops inverted argent.' (

Kingdom Commentary Notes: There was discussion about a potential conflict with an as yet unregistered device on the 9-16 Calontir LoI for Úlfr Þorgrimsson - 'Gyronny arrondi, azure and argent, a bordure sable'. Since it is not clear that the mentioned device will be registered, this submission is being forwarded. (

Honourable Lady Merideth NiShionniach

Mistress Mira Fastova
