de Hartfield is an English locative surname, found as a header spelling in R&W p.219, Hugh de Hertfeld dated 1204. R&W notes under the entry for Hart that the Middle English hert was replaced in later period by hart.
Submitted for internal commentary as Azure, in pale a pen fesswise argent and an anchor Or, this conflicted with the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantation, Azure, an anchor Or (May 1999, Laurel). With the submitter's permission this was redesigned with the submitter's permission.
4: Mirabel Sellers - New Request for Name Reconsideration
OSCAR finds the name on the Caid LoI of June 26, 2016 as submitted.
From Caid Sept 2016 LoAR
Mirabel Sellers. Name.
Nice 16th century English name!
The submitter indicated that, if her name had to be changed, the sound "Mira Sellers" was most important to her. Mira is found as a given name in early 17th century Germany. The February 2015 Cover Letter permits this given name to be combined with the 16th century English Sellers. If the submitter prefers Mira Sellers, she should submit a request for reconsideration.
Submitter would prefer Mira Sellers, and is therefore requesting reconsideration.
5: Winifred Elizabeth Harker - New Name & New Device
Per Pale, Vert and Or, between two nautilus shells, a mermaid counterchanged maintaining and charged with a sword argent.
Submitter desires a feminine name.
Winifred and Elizabeth are in "Late Sixteenth Century English Given Names," by Talan Gwynek (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/eng16/eng16alpha.html)
Harker is an English surname found in FamilySearch Historical Records:

The emblazon appearing in internal commentary had the sword barely overall. With the submitter's approval, the device was redrawn.
Yours in Service
