Grüß Gott!

Unto Emma de Fetherstan, out-bound Laurel; Juliana de Luna, in-coming Laurel; Alys Mackyntoich, Pelican; Cormac Mor, Wreath; and the esteemed members of the College of Arms does Herr Gotfrid von Schwaben, Saker Herolt of the Kingdom of Calontir send heartfelt greetings.

The Calontir College of Heralds presents this Letter of Intent for your consideration requesting registration of the following submissions:

1: Adelheid Fröhmke - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Meaning (honorable (Fröhmke)) most important.

Adelheid: Bahlow/Gentry, p. 4, header entry, feminine given name with spelling dated to 1361 via unmarked matronymic Henil Adelheid.

Fröhmke: ibid, p. 134, s.n. Fromm, Fromme, undated surname meaning "hard-working, respectable, and honest". Research suggesting this spelling as compatible to the mid 13th C., is included in figure 1 below.

2: Astryd gleðill - New Name & New Device

Quarterly azure and sable, a scorpion and a bordure engrailed argent

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Meaning (the joyful) most important.

Astryd: feminine given name listed in Medieval Norwegian Feminine Names: Astrid by Sara L. Uckelman known in the SCA as Aryanhwy merch Catmael. The entry shows: vol. 3, num. 494, Astryd Reidars dotter dated to 1391. (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norwegian/astrid.html)

gleðill: Geirr Bassi, p. 21, descriptive byname meaning "fun, good cheer".

Originally submitted with the byname in gleðill, commentary revealed the element in was superfluous in this construction, and the element was dropped at Kingdom with the submitter's approval.


3: Avelyn Carbery - New Name & New Device

Per pall inverted azure, sable and argent, a lion passant guardant Or between two sets of an arrow inverted and an ax in saltire argent and a set of an arrow inverted and an ax in saltire azure

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Avelyn: listing in Feminine Given Names in A Dictionary of English Surnames by Talan Gwynek (Brian M. Scott) dated to 1379. (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/talan/reaney/reaney.cgi?Avelina)
Also documented via Family Search database listing for Avelyn Busshipp, female, died 1622, Wiltshire, England. Batch no. B39065-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J8TW-35C)

4: Beatrix of Thanet and Thorbjorn Bjornsson inn danski - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name (Beatrix of Thanet) registered exactly as it appears in August of 2016, via Calontir.
OSCAR finds the name (Thorbjorn Bjornsson inn danski) on the Calontir LoI of September 30, 2016 as submitted.

(Fieldless) A bear statant sable atop a wheel Or


5: Biétriz la cristaliere - New Device Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2011, via Calontir.

Or, in saltire a grozing iron and a dividing iron, and in chief a capital letter B azure, within a bordure gules.

Old Item: Or, in bend two capital letters "B" azure within a bordure gules, to be released.

This is a Pennsic submission.

Device Notes:
The Pennsic Herald's Point note (see image #1 below) lists the following publication:

Veröffentlichungen der Gesellschaft für Typenkunde des 15. Jahrhunderts
[Publications of the Typology (Printing Study/Science?) of the 15th Cent.]
We were not sure of the significance of this note or resource, but we believe it is a reference for the typecase letter in this device. We were able to find an online copy of the referenced document here: https://archive.org/details/verffentlichun00gese

Dividing Iron:
We do not find the dividing iron has been previously registered, so this may be a new charge. It is a period tool used in stained glass. We are unable to find an example of a dividing iron in the Pic Dic, however, a link to the online site Jost Amman: Glazier (*Ständebuch*), 1568 found at (http://www.habsburger.net/en/media/jost-amman-glazier-standebuch-1568) shows a woodcut of a glazier's shop with what the submitter identifies as several dividing irons hanging on the wall behind the craftsman (see image #2 below). What stood out as immediately identifiable upon seeing that tool, was it represented an antique soldering iron (see image #3 below). (https://picclick.com/Lot-of-2-Vintage-Antique-Copper-Soldering-Irons-332337661582.html). And in tandem with the grozing iron, it makes perfectly good sense in the context of stained glass windows, for which this tool was reportedly used. The initial search for an image of a period soldering iron, yielded the color image seen in image #4 and found here: (https://paleotool.com/2014/08/11/medieval-tinsmith/) Seeking a better/more scholarly source for that image, or something similar, yielded the following online resource: Das Hausbuch der Mendelschen Zwölfbrüderstiftung in Nürnberg [The Household Book of the Mendel Twelve Brother Foundation in Nuremberg] found at (http://homepage.univie.ac.at/rudolf.koch/mendel/m_inh1.htm) under the heading Flaschen- und Pfannenschmied, Beckenschlager [bottle maker, and (cooking) pan manufacturer, kettle smith], the listing/link to Laternenmacher [lantern maker], 1536 (155v) shows a B&W image of the same picture here: (http://homepage.univie.ac.at/rudolf.koch/mendel/083.jpg)

Research online for the terms "medieval soldering tools" led to the following document:

English Medieval Industries: Craftsmen, Techniques, Products edited by John Blair, Nigel Ramsay (https://books.google.com/books?id=mxjCN8R4pgsC&pg=PA121&lpg=PA121&dq=medieval+soldering+tools&source =bl&ots=VcAPo-epYy&sig=HXGrQ12ap5SZSoGqAT0wbHWPu7w&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjCpIr2xdDVAhUI04MKHTVmC88Q 6AEIZzAJ#v=onepage&q=medieval%20soldering%20tools&f=false)
A search of the .pdf for the term soldering, makes mention of soldering irons in use to at least 1427.

6: Cristine Tailleur - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2006, via Calontir.

Argent, a chevron rompu purpure between two weaver's tablets vert and a Lochaber axe, a bordure sable

This is a resub of a device that was returned on the April 2007 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2007/04/07-04lar.html):

Argent, a chevron rompu rayonny to chief purpure between two flutes palewise vert and a Lochaber axe sable.
This device is returned for combining two complex lines of division, which has consistently been grounds for return since at least 1992.
This redesign removes the rayonny line of division, and changes the flutes to weaver's tablets.


7: Deomotheor Zÿdmond - New Device

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

Azure crusily of two-barred crosses a bordure Or

The name was registered on the June 2017 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2017/06/17-06lar.html#Calontir_acceptances9).

See attachment for documentation of the two-barred cross in this submission. It is an apparent variation of the Hungarian Cross, aka the Patriarchal Cross, listed in the Pic Dic (http://mistholme.com/dictionary/cross-patriarchal-lorraine-doubled/). It can be seen in image of ruler Bela IV of Hungary, issuing from a trimount.

This cross image was found at the following sites:

8: Emme Ziegler - New Device Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2014, via Calontir.

Vert, four escallops in saltire, hinges to center, argent.

Old Item: Argent, a swallow displayed guardant azure, on a chief sable three mullets of seven points argent, to be retained as a badge.

This is a Pennsic submission.
It was originally submitted as a new device, however, after confirming with the submitter, it should actually a device change with the client desiring to retain the old device as a badge. We have made the appropriate changes at Kingdom.


9: Leon Oliver - New Name & New Device

Submitter desires a masculine name.

10: Lynette Jaclyn Davéjean - New Augmentation of Arms

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in March of 1993, via the Middle.

Azure, a dove and on a chief argent between two roses proper, for augmentation on a delf purpure a cross of Calatrava Or.

This is a Pennsic submission.
The submitter's device was registered in 1993 via the Middle: Azure, a dove and on a chief argent, two roses proper. Augmentation was granted 16 JUN 2017 in Calontir by TRM Bataciqan-nu Ko'un Ashir & Ashland de Mumford for service to the archery community. (http://op.calontir.org/persona.php?p=1862)

The registered standard augmentation for Calontir is Purpure, a cross of Calatrava and a bordure Or. However, for reasons of contrast, Calontir routinely authorizes use of the registered Ensign (the populace badge) Purpure, a cross of Calatrava Or (Apr 84, Calontir) instead. (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/1984/04/lar.html)


11: Marie du Puy - New Device Change
