Atenveldt LoI dated 2018-06-30


Letter of Intent

30 June 2018, A.S. LIII

Unto Juliana Laurel; Alys Pelican; Cormac Wreath; and the commenting Members of the College of Arms,

Greetings from Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy, Brickbat Herald and Parhelium Herald for the Kingdom of Atenveldt!

The Atenveldt College of Heralds requests the consideration and registration of the following names and armory with the College of Arms. Unless specifically stated, the client will accept any spelling and grammar corrections; all assistance is appreciated.

1: Kharington Fraser - New Name & New Device

Checky argent and sable, a cross throughout gules cotised Or.

No changes.
Sound most important.
Language most important.
Culture (Scotland) most important.

Kharington is the client's legal given name (a copy of her birth certificate is provided to Laurel). (Carrington/Kerrington is found in Family Search as an English surname, none with this spelling, just as an FYI.)

Fraser is well-documented in Scotland as a surname; Samuell Fraser has a christening date of 24 July 1597 in Edinburgh Parish, Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland (Batch C-11685-4,

2: Leo Hyrulea - New Name & New Device

Per bend argent and gules, a lion queue-forchy and three triquetras all counterchanged.

Sound most important.
Language (none given) most important.

Leo: client's legal given name.

Hyrulea: client's legal middle name. A copy of the AZ driver's license is included for Laurel.

Internal commentary demonstrated that the name is not allowed under III.A.10 of the Administrative Handbook; for the use, specifically, of first and middle names, see: Return, West, Mari Alexander. However, he maintains that Hyrulea is a Scottish surname, as noted in a brief biography of Richard Edwardes: "Edwardes was born in Agnes Beaupenny Blewitt Edwards. Some of Edwardes' descendants have claimed that his mother was a mistress of Henry VIII and that Richard was Henry's son, although there has not been evidence to prove or disprove this theory....He married Helene Griffith in 1563 who of sorted of reasons had named been change from Alessia Hyrulea; her father's name was Ciberius Hyrulea." Although this citation comes from Wikipedia (, these particular citations were referenced from The Mistresses of Henry VIII (First edition), by Kelly Hart (The History Press, p. 23, June 2009, ISBN 0-7524-4835-8)

The client will take the descriptive byname the Red, if it determined that Leo Hyruldea alone is not allowed due to III.A.10 in the Administrative Handbook.

3: Patience Winter - New Name & New Device

Argent, a compass star sable, on a chief azure five quill pens argent.

No major changes.

Patience is found as a female name for Patience Adams, with a christening dates of 22 Mar 1578 in St. Mary Whitechapel, Stepney, London, England, Batch C00629-1 ("England Births and Christenings, 1538-1975," database, FamilySearch ( 11 February 2018, Patience Adams, 22 Mar 1578).
