East LoI dated 2018-02-28

Unto Juliana Laurel, Alys Pellicane, and Cormac Wreath, from Yehuda Blue Tyger, greetings!

It is the intent of the College of Heralds of the East Kingdom to register the following items. Unless otherwise noted, the submitter has no desire for authenticity and allows any changes.

1: Aurelia Colleoni a'Buccafurno - Resub Device

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

Gules, two lions combatant and on a chief Or three hearts gules

2: Bhakail, Barony of - New Order Name & New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 1974, .

Order of the Crucible of Bhakail

(Fieldless) On a flame Or a heart gules

Meaning (crucible: vessel used to fuse metals together) most important.

A crucible is a melting pot in which to heat materials to be fused together. The submitted spelling is found in the OED, s.v. crucible, dated to 1605: Timme, Quersit,I .iii.113: Salt-peter remaineth liquid and fusible in a red hote crucible.

Earlier spellings in the same entry include corusible(1460-70) and kressibulles (1495), along with the later cruzible (1611).

A 11th-14th C. example and descriptions of medieval crucibles are found at "Medieval London", Fordham University: https://medievallondon.ace.fordham.edu/exhibits/show/medieval-london-objects/crucible and


Other examples can be found on p. 22 of Gustave Milne, "Excavations at Medieval Cripplegate, London: Archaeology after the Blitz, 1946-68." https://books.google.com/books?id=7RA9BAAAQBAJ&q=crucible

Although not a period heraldic charge, the crucible is a period tool, registrable as a charge under SENA A2B2a.

This order name follows the pattern of a secular order named after a heraldic charge, found in "Medieval Secular Order Names" by Juliana de Luna (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/order/new/)

This order name is clear of Ealdormere's Order of the Crucible [October 1999] by addition of a branch name.

3: Bróccín McUvyr - New Name Change & New Badge

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in August of 2015, via the East.

Sound (Brock, brocc. MacIver, McGuyver, MacUvyr) most important.

Krossa in this spelling dated to the early 12th Century (https://medievalscotland.org/scotnames/gaelicgiven/men/broccin.shtml) and in Black p104 in the BROCEIN section dated c1131 and 1150 but the inflections are not present.

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2015, via the East.

6: Chelsey of Gloucester - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2015, via the East.

Quarterly purpure and vert, in bend sinister two escallops inverted Or

The previously submitted device, Quarterly purpure and vert, an escallop inverted Or, was returned on the May 2015 LoAR for multiple conflicts.

"Because escallops and whelks were used interchangeably in period armory, there is no DC for changing the type of seashell. Therefore, this submission conflicts with the Herald's Seal of Triton Herald, (Tinctureless) A triton-shell trumpet bell in chief. There is only DC for fieldless versus tinctureless. Per the same count, with only one DC for changing the field, it also conflicts with 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."

This resubmission resolves the conflicts which caused the previous return.

7: Ciar of Skye - New Device

Or, a fox salient proper and issuant from base a demi-sun, a chief triangular sable

Submitter desires a masculine name.

David is the submitter's legal first name, as attested to in documents uploaded with the packet. Name elements using the legal name allowance are considered neutral in time and place.

However, the given name appears in the DMNES s.n. David (http://dmnes.org/name/David) in this spelling in France in both Latin and Middle French sources, dated to 1301 in Latin and 1562 in Middle French, among others. Therefore, the submitter does not need to rely on the legal name allowance.

de La Rochelle is a locative surname from 1431, found in "Names from Paris, 1408-1449", by Sara L. Uckelman (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/french/paris1408.html)

No changes.

Donato is a masculine name found in "Fourteenth Century Venetian Personal Names"

(https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/arval/venice14/venice14given.html#table )

Favro is an occupational surname found under Faber in "Fourteenth Century Venetian Personal Names" (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/arval/venice14/venice14sur.html#table), which says "occupational, 'smith'. Possibly Latin. The Venetian form may have been Fabri, Fabris, Favri, Favro, etc. apparently occupational. Marin Falier was doge 1354-55 [4]."

During Kingdom commentary Kolosvari Arpadne Julia provided the following additional documentation supporting Favro as a Venetian form of "smith": "Surnames from a 16th-Century Italian Armorial" by Coblaith Muimnech (http://www.coblaith.net/Names/ItSur/FAV.html). (There's a link there to the scanned armorial; it indeed says FAVRO above two different coats of arms featuring the letter F.)

Kingdom commenters noted that the "D" on the original device was not in a period hand, which is required. The device was redrawn by Pallet using a Roman Capital letter, and the submitter has approved the redraw. It is being forwarded in its new form.
