Caid LoI dated 2017-01-31

Unto Andrewe Laurel, Brunissende Wreath, Alys Pelican, and the College of Arms entire does Paul Crescent, on behalf of Estrith Dolphin and the Caid College of Heralds, send greetings and salutations.

With much appreciation for all your hard work we request your consideration of the following submissions from our January 22nd meeting.

1: Albra Katerine Marie Isabelle Bautiste - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 1984, via Caid.

(Fieldless) A moon in her plenitude per pale purpure and argent

The badge incorporates a charge and tinctures found in the submitter's device, registered March 1982.


2: Dreiburgen, Barony of - New Badge Association

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 1976, .

Argent, on a pile inverted throughout azure a tower argent, within a bordure embattled azure

This submission is to be associated with populace

The badge was registered in March 1982 and reblazoned in September 1982. The attached letter states:

We, Logan Black Rune and Tyne MacPhersone, Baron and Baroness of Dreiburgen, do request that the badge Argent, on a pile inverted throughout azure a tower argent, within a bordure embattled azure, be designated as our populace badge. Done by our hand this 19th day of January AS 51 and 2017 by the common reckoning.

It is signed by the Baron, Baroness, and Blue Mountain with both SCA and legal names.


3: Dreiburgen, Barony of - New Badge Association

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 1976, .

Argent, on a pile inverted throughout azure an escutcheon argent, a bordure embattled azure

This submission is to be associated with Defenders of the Three Towers of Dreiburgen, Order of the

The badge and order name were both registered in April 2005. The attached letter states:

We, Logan Black Rune and Tyne MacPhersone, Baron and Baroness of Dreiburgen, do request that the badge Argent, on a pile inverted throughout azure an escutcheon argent, a bordure embattled azure, be designated as the badge for the Order of the Defenders of the Three Towers of Dreiburgen. Done by our hand this 19th day of January AS 51 and 2017 by the common reckoning.

It is signed by the Baron, Baroness, and Blue Mountain with both SCA and legal names.

The association was noted on the LoI (Dec. 2004) but not on the LoAR. As other letters were being signed at the same time, this seemed the easiest fix as it confirms that the barony still intends for the badge to be associated with the order, rather than submitting it as an errata.


4: Kendrick Peste - New Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Caid LoI of September 25, 2016 as submitted.

Or, an eagle sable within a bordure azure semy-de-lys argent

The original form was printed on a color printer. There was questions on whether the bordure was purpure or azure. The form was recolored with the submitter's permission to make it clear that the bordure is azure.


5: Magdalena Szabados - New Name & New Device

Vert, on a pale wavy between two towers argent three tulips gules slipped and leaved vert

Magdalena is a German feminine given name found in "German Names from 1495" at http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/german/german1495.html with 8 occurrences in this spelling.

Kolosvari Arpadne Julia provided the Caid College of Heralds with the following information regarding Hungarian name sources and the byname Szabados:

Kázmér and Szamota/Zolnay focus specifically on Hungarian names and words, and Fehértói is mostly single-element names recorded in Latin context. However, it looks to me like the Slavic name was probably based on a Hungarian one: _szabad_ means (and meant) 'free', and is at the root of several surnames. From Kázmér: > > Szabad 1488: Zabad -0-, 1499: Georgius Zabad, c. 1638: Zabad Jmre. < _szabad_ 'szabados' (which see). M: societal rank. Compare Jobbágy, Nemes, Paraszt, Polgár, Pór, Rabatos, Úr, Zsellér. > > Szabadi 1578: R. Gregorii Zabadÿ, 1603: Thomas [Szabadi], 1613: Stephanus Zabady, 1627: Joannem Szabady. < _szabadi_ < _Szabad_ placename (Marosszék) + -i adjectival suffix / _Szabadi_ placename (Győr, Somogy, Veszprém counties). M: place of origin. > > Szabados 1469

As we do not have a copy of this source, we ask the assistance of the College of Arms in confirming the documentation.

SENA Appendix C notes that Hungarian/Romanian and German name elements are compatible, provided that they are documented to within 300 years of each other.


6: Molly of the Crossroads - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in September of 2013, via Caid.

Per pale argent and azure, a latin cross flory between four harps counterchanged

The submitter's previous device of the same submission was returned by Laurel on the Oct 2016 LoAR because of a miscommunication about the permission to conflict letter. This resubmission addresses the reason for return.

I, _________, known in the SCA as Aaliz de Gant, give __________, known in the SCA as Molly of the Crossroads, permission for her armory Per pale argent and azure, a latin cross flory between four harps counterchanged to look similar to, but not identical to, my armory, Per pale argent and azure, a cross flory between four fleurs-de-lys counterchanged.

I understand that this permission cannot be withdrawn once Molly of the Crossroads's armory is registered.

7: Nicholas Alexander Wolfe de Woodchurch - New Name & New Device

Vert, a wolf rampant and on a chief argent, two ravens adorsed sable

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Language (English) most important.
Culture (English) most important.

Appearing in internal commentary as Nicholas Wolfe, the name was changed by the submitter to avoid conflict.

Nicholas is a header in Withycombe (pp. 227-8), with this spelling dated to 1273. It's also found in Mari Elspeth nic Bryan: "An Index to the 1332 Lay Subsidy Rolls for Lincolnshire, England" (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/mari/LincLSR/) as one of the most popular masculine names.

Alexander is an English masculine given name found in "English Names found in Brass Enscriptions" by Julian Goodwyn (http://heraldry.sca.org/heraldry/laurel/names/brasses/men.html) dated to 1388.

Wolfe is an English surname from Black (p. 822, s.n. Wolf). which shows that Robert Wolfe served on a jury in Swinton, Lancashire, in 1408.

Woodchurch is an English placename found in Ekwall as the header spelling pg 530 meaning 'wooden church" Chs [Wodechirche c1100, Odecere c1150 Chester], W~K [Wudecirce 11DM, chirch 1240 Ass]. The Caid College of Heralds was unable to find documentation of this spelling as a placename in period. However, FamilySearch Historical Records include:

Marie Woodchurch, married 16 July 1616, Sussex, England; Batch M02528-4 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NK3N-1M3)

This has the appearance of an unmarked locative (which SENA Appendix A notes appear in English), and as such we believe "de Woodchurch" is a plausibly period byname.

SENA Appendix A notes both double given name and double bynames are permitted for late period English.


8: Rosie Black Rune - New Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Caid LoI of August 30, 2016 as submitted.

Purpure, on a bezant a rose purpure and a chief per pale Or and sable

We do not believe that the fact that the rose is seeded Or needs to be blazoned.


Know that I remain,

--Paul Crescent
