Calontir ILoI dated 2017-11-27

Wesaþ hal!

To Saito Takauji Gold Falcon and the esteemed members of the College of Heralds comes this missive from Dorcas Whitecap, Eyas. I seek your wise counsel on the following submissions, to prepare them for registration:

1: Agamemnon of Forgotten Sea -New Badge

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

Sable, a winged ounce salient contourny reguardant argent winged Or


2: Agnes von Heidelberg -New Badge

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

Argent, on a bend between two ten petalled chrysanthemums azure, three hawks bells Or


3: Áine Táilliúir -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 2002, via Calontir.

(Fieldless) A sea-coney Or tailed azure


4: Amon Attwood -New Badge

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

(Fieldless) Issuant from a tankard vert, a flame proper


5: Aveline d'Arcey -New Name

Aveline d'Arcey

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Spelling (d'Arcey) most important.

Aveline - Old French given name, diminutive of Ava, dated to 1296. S.L. Uckelman. "Ava". In S.L. Uckelman, ed. The Dictionary of Medieval Names from European Sources, Edition 2017, no. 1. http://dmnes.org/2017/1/name/Ava.

d'Arcey - locative byname. ACADEMY OF SAINT GABRIEL REPORT 2474 states,

<Arcy> is the name of a place in France. Normally, locative bynames in the 13th century would take a prepositional form; a man would be known as <de Arcy> or <d'Arcy> 'of Arcy'. We have found the following forms recorded in England:

de Adreci, de Areci, 1086

Daresci, 1166

Arsi, 1173-82

Darci, c. 1270

de Arcy, de Arci, 1273

Darcy, 1273, 1276

The submitter prefers to spell the surname with an 'e' - <d'Arcey> if it can be documented.


6: Caterine le jeune -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in March of 2016, via Calontir.

Per chevron azure and argent, two mullets of four points Or and a sparrow volant bendwise sinister sable

This device was returned December 2016:

This device is returned for conflicts with the device of Triston de Grey, Azure, a chevron argent between three dragon's heads couped those in chief addorsed, Or and with the device of Jean Oste de Murat, Azure, a chevron argent between two prawns haurient respectant and a fleur-de-lys Or. In both cases there is a DC for changing the type of secondary charges. In neither case do the orientations count for the second DC. Against Triston, since a mullet of four points is bilaterally symmetric, we cannot get a DC for making them addorsed; similarly, against Jean, we cannot have a DC for making them respectant. As for the bird in base, neither a dragon's head nor a fleur-de-lys can be volant, so there is no comparable posture to be changed between them.

This device is also returned for violating SENA A3D2c, Unity of Posture and Orientation, which states "The charges within a charge group should be in either identical postures/orientations or an arrangement that includes posture/orientation" The charges here are not in a unified arrangement, as the bendwise orientation of the bird has to be described independently from the default palewise orientation of the mullets.

It is the opinion of the Calontir College of Heralds that there is no violation of SENA A3D2c, Unity of Posture and Orientation. Precedent established in May 2012 and November 2012 states, "when charges in a group are in different categories according to SENA A5G7 and SENA Appendix L, they do not have comparable postures/orientations and may be blazoned independently. The charge group as a whole must still be in a standard arrangement." Mullets and birds do not have comparable postures or orientations. These three charges are in the standard two-and-one arrangement.


7: Edwin Parker -New Name & New Device

Quarterly sable and vert, two stags statant respectant, in chief an oak cluster Or within a bordure argent

Edwin - "The Oxford Dictionary of English Christian Names" 3rd edition by E. G. Withycombe, p. 95

Parker - "A Dictionary of English Surnames: by P. H. Reaney & R. M. Wilson, p. 338


8: Eleanor Deyeson -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 1989, via Calontir.

Bendy sinister engrailed argent and azure, an escallop inverted Or

The original badge was returned December 2016:

This badge is returned for conflict. Precedent states:

Because escallops and whelks were used interchangeably in period armory, there is no DC for changing the type of seashell. [Chelsey of Gloucester, LoAR of May 2015]

Therefore this conflicts with the badge of Ian James of Silverlake: (Fieldless) A whelk shell fesswise Or. There is one DC for fielded vs fieldless armory, but nothing for type of shell. Both shells are fesswise, thus there is no difference for orientation.

This design is simply rotated 90 degrees counter-clockwise from the original submission.


9: Elias Sadd -New Name & New Device

Per chevron argent semy of mullets sable and vert, a caltrop argent

Submitter desires a masculine name.

Elias - masculine given name found in Withycombe, 3rd Ed, p.98, s.n. Elijah, Elias dated to 1316.

Sadd - English surname found in R&W, p.388, dated 1086.


10: Gerald Goodwine -New Badge Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 1986, via the Middle.

Argent, five dogs statant to sinister in annulo, legs to center, sable.

Old Item: Argent, five dogs, statant coward to sinister in annulo, legs to center, sable., to be released.

This badge differs from the submitter's currently registered badge in that it changes the position of the dogs' tails. The submitter does not want the word "coward" in the blazon. A new badge, Sable, in annulo five dogs statant in annulo argent was registered to this submitter in November 2016. The emblazon of that badge is the reverse coloring of this badge change, with the tails also down but not between the hind legs of the dogs.

There is a Step From Period Practice for having the dogs' legs to center, instead of having the dogs in their default palewise orientation.


11: John of Avondale -New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.

John - masculine name, fairly common in England in the 12th-15th C. (Withycombe, 3rd edition, pp. 178-9 s.n. John).

of Avondale - locative based on a constructed toponym. <Avon> - river name, Eckwall 4th ed. page 19 + <dale> - MED defines dale as "A valley, dell, glen; valley bottom"

https://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/m/mec/med-idx?type=byte&byte=37383149&egdisplay=open

Eckwall provides many examples of dales named for the rivers that run through them, including Airedale - s.n. Aire; Allerdale - "The valley of the Ellen" s.n. Allerdale; Kendal - "The valley of R Kent" s.n. Kendal; Tindale - "The Tyne valley" s.n. Tindale
