Calontir LoI dated 2018-01-06

Grüß Gott!

Unto Juliana de Luna, 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:

Sable, an ounce salient contourny reguardant argent winged Or

5: Aveline d'Arcey - New Name

Aveline d'Arcey

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Client requests authenticity for 1066 Normandy/French language/culture.
Spelling (Surname as d'Arcey) most important.

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

d'Arcey: locative byname documented via ACADEMY OF SAINT GABRIEL REPORT 2474, which 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
Bynames in Medieval France by Sara L. Uckelman p. 9, sn. Arcy, lists d'Arcy, 1469, Picardy. (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/french/frenchbynames.pdf)

The surname spelled with an e can be documented via Family Search as Frances Darcey, christened 18 Oct 1591, in Richmond, Surrey, England. Batch P01334-1 (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J7MX-6QL)

Of note, the surname Darcey is the header entry in R&W.


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

The submitter's device was initially returned by Laurel in March 2016. Quoting the decision:

Azure, a chevron ermine between two mullets of four points and a sparrow volant bendwise sinister Or.
This device is returned for conflict with the device of Rainer Wulfgar: Azure, a chevron ermine between three griffins Or. Even if we decide to number the ermine spots on the chevron, as submitted on the Letter of Intent, there is no DC between a chevron charged in this manner with multiple ermine spots and an ermine chevron. Thus, there is a DC for changing the type of secondary charges, but since birds can't be segreant and griffins may not be volant, we cannot get a second DC for posture. (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2016/03/16-03lar.html#Calontir_returns12)
Following rework by the submitter, the device was resubmitted and returned by Laurel in December 2016:

Azure, a chevron argent between two mullets of four points and a sparrow volant bendwise sinister Or.
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. (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2016/12/16-12lar.html#Calontir_returns15)

This device has again been reworked to this iteration. 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, an oak cluster and two stags statant respectant Or, a bordure argent

Edwin: English given name is documented via Family Search as Edwin Babington, marriage 26 Jan 1572, in Saint Antholin Budge Row, London, England. Batch M00080-1 (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:V5VT-KLB)

Parker: surname documented via Family Search as Anthony Parker, male, married 1572, London, England. Batch no. M00080-4 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NJQW-X6V)


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 by Laurel in December 2016. Quoting the decision:

Bendy engrailed argent and azure, an escallop fesswise Or.
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. (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2016/12/16-12lar.html#Calontir_returns15)

This design is simply rotated 90 degrees counter-clockwise from the original submission. Internal commentary noted two possible conflicts: 1)Triton Herald, Atlantia PH, and 2) an order award within the Barony of Tir-y-Don.

We believe this resubmission is clear of the Herald's Seal of Triton Herald, (Tinctureless) A triton-shell trumpet bell in chief, with a DC for tincturelessness and another for charge orientation as this escallop is inverted. It is also clear of the badge of the Order of the Whelk of the Barony of Tir-y-Don, Gyronny argent and azure, a whelk, bell in chief, Or, with a DC for the field and another for charge orientation as this escallop is inverted.


9: Elias Sadd - New Name & New Device

Per chevron argent mulletty sable and vert, a caltrop argent

Elias: Withycombe, 3rd Ed, p.98, s.n. Elijah, masculine given name Elias dated to 1316. Given name also documented via Family Search as Elias Parker, christened 1592, Lincoln, England. Batch no. C02576-3 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NF9R-82G)

Sadd: R&W, p.388, English surname dated to 1086. Surname also documented via Family Search as John Sadd, male, married 1597, Coningsby, Lincoln, England. Batch no. M02764-3 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NVH8-CQ2)


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 adamantly 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: Withycombe, 3rd ed., pp. 178-9, header entry, masculine name fairly common in England in the 12th-15th C.

of Avondale: locative based on a constructed toponym using the following elements:

Avon - river name found in 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


12: Kikuchi Yoichi Yoriie - New Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Calontir LoI of October 31, 2017 as submitted.

There is a Step From Period Practice for the use of bamboo.

18: Mathilde Frühbeck - New Name & New Device

Gules, a cross patonce throughout and in base two swans naiant Or

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Language (German) most important.

Mathilde: Contemporaries of Erasmus: A Biological Register of the Renaissance and Reformation, Bietenholz, Peter G. and Thomas Brian Deutscher, shows John II, duke of Cleves married Mathilde, a daughter of Henry landgrave of Hesse on 3 November 1489. Paper copy included. (http://books.google.com/books?id=hruQ386SfFcC&pg=PA315&dq=contemporaries+of+erasmus+duke+of+cleves&h l=en&sa=X&ei=LVN6T42yOYGk8AS6quToBA&ved=0CDUQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=contemporaries%20of%20erasmus%20duk e%20of%20cleves&f=false)

Frühbeck: Bahlow, p.151, s.n. Früh; undated German epthetical surname, where Frühbeck denotes an "early bake(r)". The actual entry states:

der Frühaufsteher (wie Frühauf). Gegensatz: Späth. Heinr. der Früge 1295 Zürich. Vgl. Frühinsfeld, Frühwacht, Frühwirt, Frühbeck.

English Translation:
One who awakes [gets up] early (like Frühauf [early up]). The opposite of: Späth [element meaning 'late']. Heinrich der Früge 1295 Zürich. Same as [similar to] Frühinsfeld [early in the field], Frühwacht [wakes early], Frühwirt [early host/proprietor], Frühbeck [early bake(r)].
While this surname is undated in this source, several of the similar reference surnames within the entry, are dated in their own entries within Bahlow on the next page:
Frühauf: [early up] Früuff 1384, Früauff 1368
Frühbrodt, Frühstück: [early bread, breakfast] Hans Früstück 1473
ibid., entry denoting a similar surname, Früetrunk [early drink] dated to 1495.
Brechenmacher, v.1, p. 515, expounds on variations of this epithet and supports period timeliness with the following entries:
Früh: Cuonr. gen. [genant = named/called] Früge 1293, Joh. Früge 1320
Frü(h)auf, Früauff, [seldom "un-Umlauted"] Fruhauf: Joh. Vruuf (also Vruhuf, Vrohuf) 1388, Frugguff 1390, Fruuff 1394, Joh. Früauff 1442. (Similar to Baldauf, Spätauf).
Frühinsfeld: Burchardus Früzehove 1268
Frühmesser: [early service] Hartmut von der frumesse 1332
Frühsorg(e): [early worries/problems] Cuoncz Früsorg 1420
Frühstück: Hans Frustuck 1473
Frühtrunk, Fruh=: der Früetrunk 1495
Frühweg (also Baldenweg): Hans Frühwek 1531
Frühwirt: Markus Früewierth 1598
Additionally, FamilySearch.org has quite a number of gray period names beginning with the element Früh- and quite a number of late/gray period names ending with the element -beck. A sampling is evidenced via the following:
Johann Früholtz, male, christening, 20 Nov 1602, Geislingen (OA. Geislingen), Württemberg, Germany. Batch C04169-5 (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NCVR-BBC)
Salome Frühnig, female, marriage, 27 Oct 1622, Straßbürg, Germany. Batch M91992-1 (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NCK2-RVF)
Mariam Grosbeck, female, christening, 01 Apr 1583, Oppenheim, Hessen, Germany. Batch C92255-1 (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NCDN-65J)
Philipp Fesenbeck, male, christening, 27 Feb 1597, Zaisenhausen, Baden, Germany. Batch C92138-1 (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NCD4-P68)
Based on this research, we find it very plausible for the epithetical surname of Frü(h)be(c)k to be dated to the 13th-16th C.

19: Melodia de Canterbury - New Name & New Device

Per fess embattled sable semy of musical notes and argent, three penguins close azure

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Spelling (Canterbury) most important.

de Canterbury: locative byname, Watts, p. 114 s.n. Canterbury, dates Canterburie to 1086 and Caunterbury to the 14th C. (Chaucher). Additionaly, the Middle English Dictionary, s.v. capper (n.), lists [display with quotations] (1381) RParl. 3.112a: Johannes Canterbury, Capper. (http://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/m/mec/med-idx?type=id&id=MED6736)
