Trimaris LoI dated 2016-11-30

The Letter of Intent for the Kingdom of Trimaris.

Many thanks to everyone who reached out to help sort through some of the submissions that fell through the cracks in previous years and the influx of submissions from Fall Coronation.

Special thanks to Mistress Milesenda de Bourges, who is much more than my boss, but rather a tireless leader whose devotion to the Dream serves as an inspiration to me and my peers.

Yours in Service,

Lord Ephrem Orbeli

1: Algirdas Gozzo - Resub Device

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

Or, on a mullet azure, an owl contourney Or, and in base a trident fesswise reversed azure.

Previously returned on 03-2016 LOAR for:

<<inform you that your Arms, Or, on a mullet azure an owl contourny maintaining a trident Or, have been returned by the Laurel Sovereign-at-Arms

for the following reasons:

This device is returned for running afoul of SENA Appendix I which states "A single charge group may only have one tertiary charge group on it." Here the owl contourny and trident constitute two different charge groups on the mullet.>>

Redrawn to split charge group with permission of submitter.

3: Asiya al-Badawiyya - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 2015, via Trimaris.

Argent, a scimitar inverted sable blade entwined with two roses slipped and leaved proper, within a border gules.

Previously submitted on letter 8-29-15: Returned for below reason on the 11-2015 LOAR:

<<Asiya al-Badawiyya. Device. Argent, a falchion inverted sable entwined of two roses gules slipped and leaved vert, a bordure gules.

This device must be returned for having the roses depicted in trian aspect. Per SENA A2C1>>

Per this, the submitter has approved a redraw with the roses drawn in proper period form and affronty.

Also, corrected blazon from the paperwork to read "proper" rather than "natural"


4: Bran O Raghailligh - New Name & New Device

Gules, a wheel argent and in chief three hand grenades Or.

Sound most important.

Given Name: Bran

"Bran," appears in annal entries related to 15th-century events, and Mari Elspeth nic Bryan's Index of Names in Irish Annals lists that form as standard for Early Modern Irish Gaelic (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Bran.shtml)

Surname: O Raghailligh

The Annals of the Four Masters has an entry for the year 1536 reading (in the CELT transcription; http://www.ucc.ie/celt/published/G100005E/text004.html):

O Raghailligh Fergal mac Seain mic Cathail tighearna Ua m-Briúin & Chonmaicne fer, fial, fosaidh, firinneach, dearlaictheach deigh-einigh d'écc iar c-comain & sacarfaic.

That translates as (http://www.ucc.ie/celt/published/T100005E/text004.html):

O'Reilly (Farrell, the son of John, son of Cathal), Lord of Hy-Briuin and Conmaicne, a generous, potent, upright, and truly hospitable man, died, after receiving the communion and sacrifice.

That supports "O Raghailligh" as plausible for the 16th century, which would make it Early Modern Irish Gaelic.

5: Christophe Beck - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2014, via Trimaris.

Per pall argent, sable, and Or, on a tortoise vert a bow with arrow nocked Or fletched gules.

Item previously submitted at Kingdom and rejected for following reasons:

In ability to distinguish bow and arrow on turtles back.

Redrawn with a thicker bow and arrow for visibility.


6: Conall Howell - New Name & New Device

Quarterly vert and sable, a cross throughout between two wolves heads couped regardant and on a chief Or, three towers vert.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Meaning (Wolf Like, derived from wolf) most important.

Conall - Mari Elspeth nic Bryan's Index of Names in Irish Annals lists "Conall" as the standard nominative form of the name in Old, Middle, and Early Modern Irish Gaelic. . .appropriate to any time between 700 and the end of our period (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Conall.shtml).

Howell - See Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn's A Simple Guide to Constructing 16th Century Welsh Names (in English Contexts) (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/welsh16.html) for examples. As the use of unmarked patronymics requires no further documentation in Welsh (http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#AppendixAEnglish), it serves as an acceptable byname, as well.

And as the combination of a Gaelic and a Welsh name phrase is permitted so long as the two are dated to within 300 years of each other (http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#AppendixCGaelic, http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#PN2C2b), Conall Howell as a whole should be registrable.

*Summary and amended documentation provided by NE Calontir commenting group.


7: Corwyn Moray - Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2005, via Atlantia.

Purpure, three bendlets argent, and in sinister chief a standard bendwise Or.

Previously returned on the 11-2015 LOAR:

<< * Corwyn Moray. Badge. Purpure, three bendlets argent and in sinister chief a standard Or.

This device is returned for violating SENA A2C1 which states that "Elements must be drawn in their period forms". The depiction of the standard used here does not match the forms we have documentation for. Since this standard does not match previously registered depictions, documentation of it as a period form was required, but not provided either by the submitter or by commenters. Additionally, this depiction violates SENA A2C1 which states that "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." The manner in which the standard itself is wound around its pole reduced its identifiability to an unacceptable degree.>>

Submitter had, per conversation, liked the design but approved a resubmission with the standard drawn in period manner.


8: Cúán mac Muirchertaig - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 2015, via Trimaris.

Vert, three zydrachs naiant in annulo and a chief Or, charged with an anvil vert.

Device was returned on the 02-2015 letter: <<Vert, three hammerhead sharks naiant in annulo Or.

This device is returned for conflict with the device of Onóra inghean mhic Catháin: Sable, three fish naiant in annulo Or. There is only one DC for changing the field. No DC is granted for the protuberances on the head of the fish. A fish is a fish.>>

The submitter has approved the addition of a chief and anvil which should provide an additional DC.

Additionally, there was some question over whether the hammerhead shark was a SFPP as the arrangement counts as one SFPP. The resultant commentary last time seemed to indicate that the hammerhead shark was a known species in time and thus did NOT count as a SFPP.

9: David of Loch Gryffyn - Resub Name & New Device

Argent, a pale gules fimbriated between a sword inverted sable quillioned and pommeled gules, and a wolf's head erased to sinister sable.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Culture (Scottish 12th Century) most important.

David - Masculine Given Name - Scottish Given Name, 12th century, Withycombe p 80 - ex. David I of Scotland 1084 - 1153

10: Enneleyn von Hessen - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2014, via Trimaris.

Gules, on a sun within a bordure engrailed Or, a horseshoe inverted sable.


11: Eoghan Murray - New Name & New Device

Per pale Or and azure, a chevron between three mullets counterchanged.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Culture (15th-16th century scottish) most important.

Given name: Eoghan (1200-1600) -

Mari Elspeth nic Bryan's Index of Names in Irish Annals, which supports "Eoghan" as the standard Early Modern Irish Gaelic form of the name, appropriate from 1200 to the end of our period (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Eogan.shtml).

Surname: Murray (13th-18th Century) -

Sharon L. Krossa's Early 16th Century Scottish Lowland Names documents 11 instances of "Murray" as a surname in the Aberdeen Council Register from the years 1500-1550, which was written in Scots (http://medievalscotland.org/scotnames/lowland16/surnamesalpha.shtml).

SENA specifies that a Gaelic name phrase and a Scots name phrase may be combined (http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#AppendixCEnglish) so long as they can be dated to within 300 years of each other (http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#PN2C2b), so Eoghan Murray as a whole should be registrable.

*Summaries and amended documentation provided by Coblaith Muimnech.


12: Euthymius Alakaseus - Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2016, via Trimaris.

(Fieldless) A lightning bolt bendwise within and conjoined to a delf voided Or.


13: Faith Tomlinson - Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2013, via Trimaris.

Fieldless, a frog rampant vert, bellied or, maintaining a skillet sable.

Previously submitted with the following return reason from the 03-2016 LOAR

<< This badge is returned for multiple reasons.

It violates SENA A2C1 which states that "Elements must be drawn in their period forms" and SENA A2C2 which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." The skillet depicted is not in a period form and was generally interpreted by commenters as a brush.

It must also be returned administratively. The Administrative Handbook says "The colored copy must be a scan of the original." This is not a scan. As indicated in this month's cover letter, the image does not need to come from a scanner but must be an unaltered digital representation of the actual paperwork. This is not the case here as the colors are altered and different from that on the uploaded form.

Some commenters wondered if the design was too evocative of a cartoon frog character and as such could be construed as obtrusively modern. This is not the case.>>

Item has been redrawn with the suggested period skillet from: Armorial Bellenville c.1370. Also cf. http://mistholme.com/dictionary/frying-pan/.

Item has also been scanned with actual scanner to avoid color alteration issues.


14: Godfrey de Neuhalle - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2013, via Trimaris.

Argent, on a chevron inverted engrailed enhanced gules, three magnolias argent, carpeled and stamened Or, and in chief a bear passant azure.

This submission was previously rejected in the 06-2016 LOAR for:

<<Device. Argent, on a chevron inverted engrailed gules, three magnolia blossoms argent barbed vert, in chief a bear passant azure.

Both previous returns of device mentioned two problems: that no evidence was provided that magnolias were known to period Europeans and that the flowers were not identifiable as magnolia blossoms.

Again, no evidence was provided that magnolias were known to period Europeans. The earliest evidence for a magnolia in Europe that commenters could find dates to 1688 and that was the magnolia Virginiana, whose blossom is rather different from the magnolia grandiflora which appears in that submission. That form of magnolia does not appear to have reached Europe until 1726, well after the end of our period. As this would be the defining instance for this flower in Society heraldry, we need more evidence. Additionally, the depiction of magnolia blossom used is the same as previously, which was returned for lack of identifiability.>>

Having consulted one of our local historical plant experts, we provide the following.

1) "In South America, magnolias were known to the Aztecs as "Eloxochitl," or the flower with the green husk. In 1570, the Spanish physician Francisco Hernandez took a scientific expedition to Mexico and created drawings of the Eloxochitl, which were re-edited and published in Europe in 1651. "

http://lesson.website/the-history-of-magnolia-trees/

2) The Hernandez drawing can be found in the book: Nova plantarum historia Mexicana. The species depicted is Magnolia dealbata (This work contains a drawing of a plant under the vernacular name Eloxochitl, that is almost certainly Magnolia dealbata (=Magnolia macrophylla subsp. dealbata). Picture drawn circa 1570. This books is also referenced by the Torey Botanical Club in their bulletin. https://books.google.com/books?id=rDkWAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA502&lpg=PA502&dq=Nova+plantarum+historia+Mexican a&source=bl&ots=6TqCIVg_cp&sig=qZ9IzAsl7o6UOISOGqGvJfAPfY8&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiw-qX79uLPAhXC4CYK HYuuA3QQ6AEILzAE#v=onepage&q&f=false

Snippets of the book -although not this page - are available at: http://jcb.lunaimaging.com/luna/servlet/view/search?QuickSearchA=QuickSearchA&q=Nova+plantarum+histo ria+Mexicana&search=Search

The book has copies in the British Museum and in the Arnold Arboretum collection at Harvard.

3) Additionally, the following archaelogical survey indicates the presence of magnolia pollen and detritus in soil samples from Fort Manzanas, a period fort in St. Augustine. Presumably if the trees were present to pollinate and leave debris, they were visible at the fort area which was constructed in the sixteenth century.

https://archive.org/stream/archeologicalinv00deag/archeologicalinv00deag_djvu.txt

4) Lastly, the magnolia glauca is referenced as being discovered by European explorers in 1584 in Pamlico Sound, modern day North Carolina.

https://books.google.com/books?id=ZU4hAQAAMAAJ&pg=PR24&lpg=PR24&dq=earliest%20mention%20of%20magnoli a%20in%20europe&source=bl&ots=Da_EJnbSOV&sig=wuipYsdFLN6XdNJKWa2Jjj0O-1M&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwj3wv eGguPPAhVCTSYKHVfTBb4Q6AEIOTAE#v=onepage&q&f=false

(Image of pertinent page below)

5)http://globaltrees.org/projects/magnolias-caribbean/

Documents the Magnolia's presence in the Caribbean which had been settled by Europeans since 1498.

6) Given all of the above, it was clear that while later publications made the magnolia more well known, it was known to European explorers in the mid to late 16th century in both Mexico and The St. Augustine Florida area. I will also note that the notation that major publication occurred later, we would count this as a valid arts and science source for competition given the original penning in the mid 16th century.

The second concern was the identifiability of the magnolias. They have been redrawn to depict magnolias with their prominent stamen in the "cup" style that we depict many other period flowers in.

Correction to Badge (2016-Nov-01 10:11:43): Please note that this should be changed to a resubmit when we move the letter up.


15: Grisselda Farley - New Name & New Device

Blazoned as poppies on the Letter of Intent, these are not recognizable as such. Since it appears that the submitter actually wants poppies, we are returning this device for redraw so the submitter can have the charge they want without being charged a fee for a device change. If they wants this depiction even though it cannot be blazoned as poppies, then the submitter may submit a request for reconsideration.

Thus, this device is returned because the pale obscures the per pale line of division, making it impossible to distinguish this counterchanged field from a straightforward chevronelly argent and azure field.>>

35: Valeria Victoria de Deva - Resub Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Spelling (Keeping the cognomen) most important.

Submission originally bounced at kingdom for the locative use of "of chester". Submitter has chosen to go with de Deva as a proper locative.

Roman, wife of a merchant living in the civilian settlement at Deva (Castra Legionis- modern:Chester) in 116 AD- providing goods to other citizens and the 20th legion stationed at the fortress. See print outs for the documentation of the name/use/building of Deva.

Since my (fictitious) father's name was Valerius Victor, my name would be the feminine version of both his nomen and cognomen. As the only daughter I do not need additional qualifiers (such as Major/Minor or Elder/Younger).

Nomen/nomen gentilicium:

Valeria (female- documentation)

Cognomen:

"As in men's names, the cognomen followed the nomen. Thus, the typical pattern for an Imperial Roman woman's name is: Feminine Nomen + Feminine Cognomen" (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/roman.html#women) and "Women did not have a praenomen, but took the feminine form of their father's family name (nomen / gentilicium) and sometimes the feminine form of his cognomen." http://vindolanda.csad.ox.ac.uk/reference/names.shtml "Feminine form of the name, typically formed by changing -us to -a."

The cited source for the nomen and cognomen is The Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania (http://inslib.kcl.ac.uk/irt2009/index.html).

Locative -

Latin locatives are either [placename in genitive] or de [placename in ablative], and the latter is post-clasical. Thus, "Valeria Victoria Devae" or "Valeria Victoria de Devā" would be proper Latin.
