The spelling Furisine will need to be used unless new documentation is found for Furison.

[February 2008 LoAR, A-East]

Stonemarche, Barony of. Order name Order of the Furisine of Stonemarche.

Submitted as Order of the Furison of Stonemarche, the earliest date we have found for the spelling furison is the 1889 date from the Oxford English Dictionary, s.v. furison. While furison is the standard spelling used in SCA blazonry, we require that order names based on heraldic charges to use period spellings for the charge names. The OED, s.v. furison, dates the spelling furisine to 1536; we have changed the name to Order of the Furisine of Stonemarche in order to register it.
