Non Nobis Herald

Purpure, a behive within a double tressure Or

Sound (no bees) most important.
Spelling (Nobis) most important.

Submitter was named a Herald Extraordinary on August 8th, 2015, by Konstantia Gold Falcon. [Scroll image attached].

<motto> + Herald - pattern documented by Julia Smith in "Heraldic Titles from the Middle Ages and Renaissance" http://medievalscotland.org/jes/HeraldicTitlesSCA/index.shtml

Non Nobis - period Latin phrase, title of a Psalm from the Latin Vulgate. Caxton's 1483 edition of the Golden Legend has King Edward the Confessor praying "Non nobis", quoting him in Latin, then providing the English translation. According to Shakespeare in Henry V, King Henry had "Non Nobis" sung after the Battle of Agincourt (published 1600). "Non nobis" was the motto/battle cry of the Knights Templar. And "Non nobis" was used as an epigraph (introductory quote) by authors and translators in late period. The impresa of Sir Philip Sidney used at The Triumph of the Four Foster Children of Desire in 1581 was "Sic nos non nobis" http://shaksper.net/current-postings/30914-non-nobis-and-te-deum-3

This was also noted in the _Memoirs of the Life and Writings of Sir Philip Sidney_ and discussed in more detail in _Sir Philip Sydney and the Circulation of Manuscripts, 1548-1640_ pp 284-5 - with a poem about Bees working not for themselves "Sic vos non vobis" related to Sir Philip's impresa and his follower's use of "Sic nos non nobis" in the 1581 tilt. [snippet view on Google Books]

The October 2012 decision registering "Non Scripta Herald" for Tanczos Istvan requested more documentation for future registrations of heraldic titles from Latin mottoes, which were a SFPP under RfS, since no period Latin-based Heraldic Titles had been found. The decision states that Latin mottoes are "vanishing rare in period" as a significant concern. However, Ursula Georges has documented in her study of 16th and 17th Welsh heraldic mottoes, that a majority of late period Welsh mottoes at that time were, in fact, Latin. http://www.yarntheory.net/ursulageorges/motto/welshmottoes.html

And so, while I have not been able to find any heraldic titles derived from Latin mottoes (perhaps because Latin mottoes achieved peak popularity after most heraldic titles had been established), I believe that Ursula George's article demonstrates that by late period, Latin mottoes were common enough that it would be plausible for a late period heraldic title to be derived from one. "Non nobis" in particular was widely known in popular and high culture, including impresae and as a battle cry and would therefore seem particularly plausible for use in an heraldic title.

If the above is not convincing, I would be willing to accept the title Nobis Herald instead, based on the <family name> + Herald pattern from Julia Smith, ibid.

Nobis appears as an English surname in IGI/Family Search: Lennard Nobis, married 1577, Somerset, England, Batch M15084-1
