Ealdormere LoI dated 2017-04-25

Unto the Sovereigns and other members of the College of Arms of the Society, come greetings from Rylyn Buchanan, Green Mantle Herald

It is the intent of the Ealdormere College of Heralds to submit the following for your consideration.

This item was on the 07-2017 LoAR

1: Æthelbert of Whitstone Isle - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 2015, via Ealdormere.

Or, a sparrowhawk striking gules and in canton an awl, point to base sable handled of wood proper.

This device was returned on the Aug 2016 LoAR for the following reason:

This device is returned for violating SENA A2C1 which states that "Elements must be drawn in their period forms". The awl used here does not match the shapes that have been documented so far and no documentation was provided. The documented shapes are illustrated in the 08/2005 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2005/08/05-08pics.doc)

On resubmission please advise the submitter to be careful about the tinctures used (the "gules" appeared as tenné) and that the shield fits the approved form. Each of these issues is also grounds for return.

Kingdom commentary indicated that the hawk looked more tenne than gules and that the shield appeared to be on a non standard shape. Client has submitted this replacement.

The original can be found here:

This redraw uses a more period awl, as seen in image 1.

The above submission has images. To view them, see the URLs below:

6: Fáelán Ruadh ua Aodha - Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 2015, via Ealdormere.

(Fieldless) Upon a hurst vert a foi per pale argent and Or

The original badge; Per pale argent and Or, a foi and in chief a chevron raguly sable and vert was returned on the August 2016 LoAR

This badge is returned for violating the following precedent:

In this submission the chevron inverted and the tree can only be interpreted as co-primary charges, as they are of approximately equal visual weight and neither occupies the center of the shield. This combination of ordinary with non-ordinary charge in a single charge group produces an unbalanced design. Without period evidence for such a design, it is not registerable. [Issobell nic Gilbert, April 2005, R-Caid]

Client has resubmitted a design to, hopefully, address the barely overall problem that was commented on at Kingdom.

Which is confirmed by SENA A3D2:

Mixing Ordinaries and Other Charges: While charge groups may have different types of charges, charge groups consist of either identical ordinaries or complex charges. Thus, a single charge group may not mix ordinaries with non-ordinaries or mix two types of ordinaries.

The same issue applies here - the chevron and the foi can only be interpreted as co-primary charges.

It can be found here:

This is a complete redesign.

OSCAR finds the name (Anne Cooke) registered exactly as it appears in July of 2016, via Ealdormere.
