11: John le Mailur -Resub Name & Resub Device

Per pale barry dancetty azure and argent and argent, on a tower sable a sword inverted Or.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound (John Mailer) most important.

John - Masculine given name, found in "Select Documents of English Lords of the Abbey of Bec", dated 1247-1330.

le Mailur - Surname, dated to 1262 in Reaney & Wilson.

Previous submission, John Mailer, was returned by Laurel in January 2016.

Unfortunately, this name conflicts with the registered name John Maelen. Only the final syllable of the byname has been changed (from -en to -er). Because this change only affects the final consonant, it is not a substantial change under PN3C2 of SENA. Therefore, we must return this name.

Previous submission, Quarterly azure and argent, a tower sable, was returned by Laurel in January 2016.

This device is returned for multiple conflicts.

It conflicts with the device of Harold Breakstone: Or, a castle triple-towered sable, pennants flotant to sinister vert. We do not grant any difference between a tower and a castle, since the two were frequently used interchangeably in period. Thus, there is just one DC for changing the field.

It also conflicts with the badge of Geoffrey Geometer for Freehold Turris Nimborum: Barry wavy argent and azure, a tower issuant from base sable. There is a DC for changing the field, but we do not grant difference between a primary charge that is issuant from base and one that is not.
