Outlands LoP dated 2013-01-08

Outlands College of Heralds

January 8, 2013 From the Office of the Castle Herald

Sayyidah Khalidah bint Yahya'a

castle@outlandsheralds.org

Unto the Outlands College of Heralds, our respected friends and colleagues who give freely of their time to provide commentary, and all others who come by these letters, on this 8th day of January, A.S. XLVII (2013 CE), does Sayyidah Khalidah bint Yahya'a send greetings on behalf of Mistress Fiachra ni Ciardhubhain, White Stag Principal Herald. It would assist Castle Herald greatly in the future if you would e-mail a copy of the documentation summary for name submissions along with the paper copies. It saves having to re-type everything again. Also, please be sure that you include dates of registration and return for armory for previously registered names and resubmissions of any kind. If Castle can't find where an item was returned, it may be pended until the information is provided or payment is made for a new submission.

Here follows the Kingdom of the Outlands' Letter of Presentation for January 2013. Your comments and suggestions are always welcome. Errors found herein are my sole responsibility. Anyone may comment upon the items found herein, and e-mail commentary to the herald's commentary list is encouraged. Please have comments on items contained herein to Rampart Herald by February 15, 2013, for the decision meeting tentatively scheduled for February 20, 2013. As a reminder, the College of Arms requests commentary on all items, including appeals.

1: Gerald Beckett -New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound most important.

[Gerald] - Bardsley, Charles, A Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames, pg. 314

[Beckett] - Bardsley, Charles, A Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames, pg. 90

Consulting Herald: Selene of the Sky


2: Mahowney M'Agaloglie -New Name & New Device

Per bend dovetailed argent and sable, a ram's head cabossed gules and a quill bendwise argent

Culture (Irish) most important.

3: Sander von Zeitz -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 2012, via the Outlands

Vert, a pall azure fembriated Or between a compass of 16 points and two sheaves of arrows Or

The submitter's previous device, Vert, a pall azure a sun and two pair of arrows in saltire Or, was returned on the November 2012 LoR (http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/2012-10-lop/1211-lor.html) with the following:

{This device violates normal rules of contrast, with an azure pall on a vert field, and must be returned for that reason. Further, on re-draw, submitter should be aware that the secondary charge group of sun and arrows violates the "unity of posture" rule of SENA A.3.D.2.C (essentially, the arrows in saltire cannot be used in combination with the sun). http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/sena.html#A3.}


4: Selene of the Sky -New Badge

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

Fieldless, a scimitar argent, cross guard Or and hilt sable, draped by a veil azure

Submitter has provided additional documentation for the charges, scans below.

5: Sophie von Schönburg -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Outlands LoI of October 31, 2012 as submitted.

Argent, a bend sinister azure with three oak leaves argent, between two bees volant azure

Submitter's previous device, Argent, a bend sinister between an oak leaf and a bee volant azure, was returned on the November 2012 LoR (http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/2012-10-lop/1211-lor.html) with the following:

{Returned for conflict with Thomas of the Isles (reg. 03/1994 via Caid), Argent, a bend sinister between a chair, back to sinister, and a roundel azure. There is one DC for changing the type of secondaries.}


6: Veronica Olympia Francesco -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Sound most important.

[Veronica] - `Feminine Given Names from Thirteenth Century Perugia', Arval Benicoeur (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/arval/perugia/perugiaFemAlpha.html)

[Olympia] - Submitter claims to have found `Olympias' on heraldry.sca.org but no link was provided to the appropriate article and Castle Herald cannot find it.

[Francesco] - `Fourteenth Century Venetian Personal Names', Arval Benicoeur and Talan Gwynek (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/arval/venice14/venice14sur.html#table)


7: William Drake of Drakereth -New Name & New Device

Gyronny Or and vert, a wyvern sejant to sinister wings displayed argent

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Client requests authenticity for 14th Century Welsh.

[William] - `14th Century Worcestershire Masculine Names' Sara L. Uckelman (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/english/mascworc14.html)

[Drake] - `Drake Family Seats' (http://www.wyverngules.com/Seats/Seats.htm)

[Drakereth] - `Drake Family Seats' (http://www.wyverngules.com/Seats/Seats.htm), as Drakerath

Consulting Herald: Gwilim de Glamorgan

Correction (2013-Jan-12 14:01:37): Due to the conflict of the submitter's desired name (and available documentation) and the submitter's desire of authenticity, the submitter has opted to forgo the authenticity request as he cares most about the name as a whole.


Thus ends the January 2013 Letter of Presentation.

In Service,

Sayyidah Khalidah bint Yahya'a

Castle Herald
