East ILoI dated 2019-05-24

Greetings unto the heralds of the East Kingdom and the Known World! We thank you for your commentary, and recommend the following items for your attention.

1: Agnes de Lyon -New Device

Or, two badgers combatant sable masked argent and on a chief vert a rapier fesswise argent

Consulting herald: Llewellyn Walsh

5: Alric the Younger -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in September of 2016, via the East.

Vert, a boar's head erased and on a chief enarched argent four broadheads vert

Consulting Herald: Alexandre St Pierre

This device was previously returned on the April 2018 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2018/04/18-04lar.html#169):

Vert, a boar's head erased close between in pale an arrow fesswise reversed and an arrow fesswise, a bordure potenty argent.

This device is returned for violating SENA A3D2c, Unity of Posture and Orientation, which states "The charges within a charge group should be in either identical postures/orientations or an arrangement that includes posture/orientation" The arrows in this device are not in a unified orientation, as they are pointing in opposite directions and need to be blazoned separately.

The submitted blazon used the phrase between two arrows counter-fesswise fesswise, in an attempt to extend the pattern of passant quadrupeds facing in opposite directions to inanimate objects. However, until documentation that inanimate objects were depicted in a similar fashion, the pattern cannot be extended past quadrupeds at this time.

This is a complete redesign.

19: Joan Malet -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2018, via the East.

Sable, a comet and a gore argent

Consulting Herald: Rowan Stauffer

This item was returned at the Kingdom level in May 2018. We believe this redraw addresses the concerns raised.

"This device is returned for violation of the long-standing precedent prohibiting charge gores. It was originally banned on the Nov. 1991 cover letter (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/1991/11/cvr.html), reconsidered in 2014, and upheld on the May 2014 cover letter (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2014/05/14-05cl.html#5.)"


20: John Teller -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2018, via the East.

Quarterly sable and Or, a cross swallow-tailed argent

This device was returned on the February 2018 East Kingdom LoD (https://bth.eastkingdom.org/ILoIs/2018/February%202018%20LoD.pdf):

This device is returned for a lack of identifiability, as the very short-armed swallowtail cross is nearly indistinguishable from a mullet of eight points.

Additionally, as a separate grounds for return, the black and white emblazon does not match the color. The diagonal lines in two of the quarters of the line drawing do not appear in the color rendition. While it is possible that the submitter was trying to use the lines to "trick" the black and white version, the SCA does not use tricking. Furthermore, no version of tricking we are familiar with uses diagonal lines to represent sable.

We feel this redesign addresses the issues presented.


21: Lupold Hass -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 2014, via the East.

Per pale azure and sable, a hare courant argent and a bordure Or

Consulting Herald: Anastasia Du Monte

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2018, via the East.

Per pale sable and gules, a sun issuant from dexter Or

Consulting herald: Grimolfr Skulason

This device was returned on the October 2018 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2018/10/18-10lar.html#149):

This device is returned for violation of SENA Appendix J, which disallows "A design with charges only in sinister chief and in central base and variants (like in chief and dexter base)." In this design, the charges are in canton and in sinister, which is a clear variant of the two examples listed.

We believe this resubmission addresses the stated issue.


23: Matilda of Oxford -New Name & New Device

Argent, a bear rampant and a bordure azure

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Language (would like to have Oxford in some way) most important.

Matilda is a feminine given name found in England in 1222 in the DMNES, from The Domesday of St. Paul's of the Year M.CC.XXII.; or, Registrum de Visitatione Maneriorum per Robertum Decanum, William Hale, editor. http://dmnes.org/cite/Matilda/1222/StPaulDom

26: Panther Vale, Shire of -Resub Branch Name & Resub Device

Or, on a pile vert a panther statant Or spotted of diverse tinctures and a laurel wreath Or

No changes.
Spelling (not specified) most important.

Consulting Herald: Conall an Doire

This name and a previous device were returned on the June 1999 LoaR (https://heraldry.sca.org/loar/1999/06/lar_0622.html):

The LoI presented no documentation for the name. The college could find vale used in English place names, albeit rarely, but no documentation could be found for Panther in English place names. Barring documentation this name must be returned.

We do not form holding names for groups, so the name must be returned. However, even if the name was registerable we would return the device as it conflicts with Alanna of Caer Du Pard Or, on a pile throughout vert, a tower Or, on the battlements a snow-leopard couchant reguardant proper. While we blazon them differently, we give no difference between chaussé and a charged pile. Therefore there is one CD for the difference to the charges on the pile.

We believe that these resubmissions address the issues raised.

<Shire> is a branch name designator listed in SENA, Appendix E http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#AppendixE

<Panther> is found as a byname in the record of Johanna Panther on Family Search, buried 23 Feb 1596, Dorset, England. Batch # B39606-3 https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J85P-7TP

Consulting Herald: Lilie Dubh inghean Ui Mordha

Stonebridges is a compound place name based on patterns found in Ekwall 4th Ed: Stonegrave, Stoneham (1281), Stonehouse, Stoneleigh (1153 and 1285), Stoneton (1316); pp 446-7.

The Lingua Anglica rule gets the more modern spelling.

There are other supports of the compound name, as patterns of stone + [item] exist in Stonhalle (Records of Norwich, 1287), Stonmell (Calendar of Inquisitions Miscellaneous Preserved in the Public Record Office, 1415). These examples are found in the ME Online: stone, # 18 "In Surnames, In Place Names" (https://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/m/mec/med-idx?type=id&id=MED43058)

There are many place names in Eckwall that use the deuterotheme {-bridge}. We have Bembridge (1316, 1345),Bracebridge (1212, 1230), Dudbridge (1292). The modern spelling of bridge instead of brigg or bregge is lingua anglica. Pluralization should require no extra documentation.

The group would like to retain their old device as ancient arms. The group is currently known as the Shire of Norðfjǫrðr.

A petition of support is included in the packet.
