East April 1 LoI dated 2012-04-01

Greetings!

It appears as though it's that time of year, when submitters start to think of submitting names and armory before we go to War. And we've decided to help them along with some items that are most definitely not in use at this time, and very unlikely to conflict with anything.

That's it. We're helpin'. Totally.

Yours in Disservice,

Sister Venerable Cudgel of Mindfulness and Sister Holy Shotgun of Understanding of The Sisterhood of Saint Walburga

(with some assistance from Eleazar ha-Levi and Jan Eagle of Cadtaster)

3: Alas Poore Yorick - New Name & New Device

Sable, a cubit arm proper habited azure sustaining a death's head in profile argent.

Client requests authenticity for late-period England.
Language (English) most important.

Consulting herald: Hugh Deman

Both elements are found in the IGI Parish Extracts:

ALAS ABBAY Female Marriage 08 SEP 1588 Askham, Westmorland, England Batch: M002331

ALAS ASLY Female Christening 12 MAR 1570 Saint Edmund, Dudley, Worcester, England Batch: C040131

ALAS BONNER Female Christening 12 APR 1573 Crosthwaite, Cumberland, England Batch: P003011

Poore is a header form dated 1580 in Bardsley.

Yorick is a character name from William Shakespeare's play Hamlet. ("Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio, a fellow of infinite / jest, of most excellent fancy. He hath bore me on his back a / thousand times, and now how abhorr'd in my imagination it is! / My gorge rises at it." - Hamlet Act 5, scene 1, 179-188). This play is thought to have been written sometime between 1599-1603. The First Quarto (first published edition) is dated 1603.

As this is one of the most well-known lines from the play, it is hoped that this submission can rely upon the literary name allowance. Although this is a given name by type, there is a pattern of English names including unmarked patronyms (see the introduction to R&W). Although the submitted surname was not found as an attested given name, its use as a surname is consistent with English naming practices.

Drinkwater Tavern

Consulting herald: Wine Butt

Drinkwater is a surname found in Bardsley, s.n. Drinkwater, dated 1586.

Finally, we note that none of the examples of household names based on signs that were provided on the LoI or in commentary support the pattern House [of] X. Instead, the documented patterns include X (with no designator; note that this pattern is not registerable as it violates RfS III.2.b), X Inn, X Tavern, X Brewhouse, and Sign of X.

The pattern of <possible surname> + <Inn/Tavern> is found in Mari ingen Briain meic Donnchada, "English Sign Names" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/inn/#BynameInn). The examples given are <Bosoms yn> (1522) and <Mitford Tavern> (1489).

    Bitus is a cognomen found in A Study of the Cognomina of Soldiers in the Roman Legions, Lindley Richard Dean (http://books.google.com/books?id=MF0KAAAAIAAJ) at p. 146

    The pattern [nomen] + [cognomen] is attested in Academy of St. Gabriel Report 2206 (http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi/2206.txt), which states "Early in the third century the praenomen fell out of use in Rome and the traditional tria nomina was supplanted (at least among the nobility) by a new system of nomen, cognomen, and agnomen. [4, 5] By your date of 250 CE most men had names composed of a nomen and one or more cognomina." The cited footnotes are:

    [4] Birley, Anthony, _The People of Roman Britain_ (London: B T Batsford, Ltd, 1979). pp. 19

    [5] One factor in this shift may have been the Edict of Caracalla, published in 212 CE, which granted citizenship to all freemen living within the Roman Empire. The tria nomina may have become less popular once it was no longer a mark of citizenship. (Birley, op. cit., pp. 18-19)

    To Richard Oysel, escheator beyond Trent. Order to deliver to Thomas son of Thomas de Lucy certain lands in Askpatrik, co.
