10: Helena the Innocent -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2015, via Lochac.

Quarterly azure and argent, in fess 5 lozenges conjoined gules.

Consulting Herald Amelot de Akeney

The following is information on the returned device.

LOAR August 2015
Helena the Innocent. Device. Quarterly azure and argent, a sheaf of arrows and a bordure gules. This device is returned for contrast issues. SENA A3B4 states "Charges must have good contrast with the background on which they are placed". Here the bendwise arrow does not have good contrast with the gules sections on which it lies. A sheaf of arrows is not a single charge, it is shorthand for a specific arrangement. Charges in a sheaf must individually have good contrast with the underlying field.

This submission is a change of charge from the previous submission and should remove the previous reason for return


11: Hrolf Herjolfssen -New Alternate Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 1983, via the West.

Ethelbreth the Unsteady

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Sound (Could not copy will need to be added as a comment.) most important.

Consulting Herald Drusticc inigena Eddarrnonn

Ethelbreth
Ethelbreth is an Early Modern English vernacular form of the Old English saint's name Æthelberht. We are using the saint's name allowance for this submission.

Ethelbrith would have been the vernacular form in the 12th century:
Item tempore istius, scilicet, anno millesimo centesimo nonagesimo secundo, ossa Sanctorum, Sancti Felicis, Ethelredi, ac Ethelbrithi, in feretris sunt collata. Also at that, obviously, the year 1192, the bones of the saints, of San Felice, of Ethelred, and Ethelbrithi, in shrines have been given. [referring to Æthelberht, saint and great-grandson of Æthelberht of Kent] Page 177 of Cartularium Monasterii de Rameseia, Vol. III edited by William Henry Hart, published in 1893.(https://archive.org/stream/cartulariummonas03rams#page/177/mode/1up)

By 1587 the vernacular form, in this document, was Ethelbreth:
About the same time was Edelfred king of Northumberland slaine in battell, at a place called Wintringham, not far from the river of Humber, by Redwald and Ethelbreth, the one being king of the east Angles, and the other of the middle Angles.... Then was one Edwine a right christian prince appointed to reigne in his place, by the assignement of the two forsaid kings Redwald and Ethelbreth>[referring to Æthelberht of Kent, saint] Page 111 of The first and second volumes of Chronicles : comprising 1 The description and historie of England : 2 The description and historie of Ireland : 3 The description and historie of Scotland Volume 2 by Raphael Holinshed, published in 1587.(https://archive.org/stream/firstsecondvolum00holi#page/111/mode/1up)

In 1601 the vernacular form was also Ethelbreth (in this case not referring to a saint):
... ad Ethelbrethu Episcopum Haugustaldentem, diserte ait Willielm, Malmesbur, de Pontif. Angl. lib. 3. Accae, Fredebert ei Tilbert: ipsi quoq; Ethelbreth successit.... Post Ethelbrethum tres tantum Episcopi Haugustalden fuere: Herdred: Eambertus: Thiffriddid. ... to Ethelbrethu, Bishop of Haugustalden, eloquent he says Willielm, Malmesbury, the Pontif. Angl. book 3. Acca, Fredebert, they, Tilbert they too; Ethelbreth succeeded.... After Ethelbrethum three only bishops of Haugustalden were: Herdred, Eambertus, Thiffriddid. [referring to Æthelberht of Whithorn, bishop of Hexham] Page 645 of Antiqvae Lectionis Tomus I: In Qvo XVI. Antiqva Monvmenta Ad Historiam Mediae Aetatis Illvstrandam, Nvnqvam Edita by Henrico Canisio, published in 1601. (https://books.google.com.au/books?id=B2JmAAAAcAAJ&printsec=frontcover#v=onepage&q&f=false)

the
SENA (App.A) allows the use of descriptive bynames in Middle/Early Modern English with the article the or le.

14: Katherine Kerr of the Hermitage -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in September of 2006, via Lochac.

Per chevron embattled gules and azure, two curs' heads couped argent each gorged of a pearled coronet attached thereto two chain links Or and a tower argent.

Consulting herald Fiora Vespucci

Katherine was granted a court barony on 3 February AS XLIV and is entitled to bear a baronial coronet.

The following was returned in the June 2017 LOAR.

Katherine Kerr of the Hermitage. Device change. Per chevron embattled gules and azure, two curs' heads couped argent each issuant from a pearled coronet attached thereto two chain links Or and a tower argent. This device is returned for multiple reasons. First, in the return of the badge of Ghislaine d'Auxerre, LoAR of April 2002, a coronet of trefoils and pearls was deemed too close to a ducal coronet to be registerable to any not of ducal rank. These coronets seem to be coronets of pearls and a single trilobe, which brings up the same issue. The submitter is a court baroness and entitled to display a coronet, but she is not a duchess and thus may not display a coronet that appears to denote ducal rank.

Second, even if the coronets were not too close to ducal coronets, adding the trilobe to the center of each means that this style of coronet must be documented to period and cannot be registered without such documentation.

Third, the dogs are not gorged of the coronets but rather issuant from them. Therefore, the coronets are considered to be co-primary with the heads and this must be returned for having three types of charges in the same charge group (so-called "slot-machine" heraldry).

In resubmission, the submitter should take care to draw the dog's heads to be more recognizable. Commenters found the dog's heads difficult to identify.

The submitter is a court baroness and entitled to a coronet.
