Outlands LoI dated 2018-12-28

From the Office of Rampart Herald

THL Khalidah bint Yahya'a (Nicole Riviezzo)

Unto the Sovereigns and members of the College of Arms of the Society, does Khalidah bint Yahya'a, Rampart Herald send her greetings.

What follows is the December 2018 Letter of Intent for the Kingdom of the Outlands.

I would like to thank Kolosvari Arpadne Julia, Maridonna Benvenuti, and all of the heralds who were kind enough to contribute to internal commentary on OSCAR.

It is my intent to register this December the following items from the Outlands' College of Heralds.

This item was on the 03-2019 LoAR

1: Angelica Sabine - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No changes.
Spelling (16 century English) most important.

[Angelica] - Angelica Warman, f, 14 Sep 1588, Elmstead, Kent, England, C01966-0.

[Sabine] - Joane Sabine, f, 18 May 1590, Davington, Kent, England, M01338-7.

Additional Documentation provided by Kolosvari Arpadne Julia:

The 1588 baptism is actually 1589, but it does look like the church warden named his daughter Angelica. (Both of the cited registers are archdeacon's transcripts, but they appear to be done at the time of the events: the copyist on the previous page identifies himself as Thomas Warman, church warden, and then here he is on the next page, having a daughter baptised.);
