Calontir ILoI dated 2017-08-30

Wesaþ hal!

To Saito Takauji Gold Falcon and the esteemed members of the College of Heralds comes this missive from Dorcas Whitecap, Eyas. I seek your wise counsel on the following submissions, including 3 from Pennsic, to prepare them for registration:

1: Adelheid Fröhmke -New Name & New Device

Per pale purpure and azure, a brazier argent enflamed proper

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Meaning (honorable (Fröhmke)) most important.

Adelheid - feminine name dated to 1361 in Bahlow/Gentry, page 4.

Fröhmke - undated surname, ibid, page 134

2: Astryd in gleðill -New Name & New Device

Quarterly azure and sable, a scorpion and a bordure engrailed argent

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Meaning most important.

Astryd - feminine given name, "Medieval Norwegian Feminine Names: Astrid" by Sara L. Uckelman known in the SCA as Aryanhwy merch Catmael shows vol. 3 num. 494 Astryd Reidars dotter dated to 1391

in gleðill - descriptive byname meaning "fun, good cheer", GB p. 21. The actual entry in GB is simply "gleðill", but the element "in" was added to convey the intended meaning of "the joyful".

3: Avelyn Carbery -New Name & New Device

Per pall inverted azure, sable and argent, a lion passant Or between three saltires of an arrow inverted and an ax counterchanged

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Avelyn - dated to 1379 in "Feminine Given Names in A Dictionary of English Surnames" by Talan Gwynek (Brian M. Scott)


Carbery - surname dated to 1406 in Black, s.n. Carberry

4: Beatrix of Thanet and Thorbjorn Bjornsson inn danski -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name (Beatrix of Thanet) registered exactly as it appears in August of 2016, via Calontir.
OSCAR finds the name (Thorbjorn Bjornsson inn danski) on the Calontir LoI of September 30, 2016 as submitted.

(Fieldless) A bear statant sable on a plow wheel Or

5: Biétriz la cristaliere -New Device Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2011, via Calontir.

Or, in saltire a grozing iron and a dividing iron, and in chief a capital letter B azure, within a bordure gules. We do not find the dividing iron has been previously registered, so this may be a new charge. It is a period tool used in stained glass

Old Item: Or, in bend two capital letters "B" azure within a bordure gules, to be released.

This is a Pennsic submission.

Device Notes:
The Pennsic Herald's Point note (see image #1 below) lists the following publication:

Veröffentlichungen der Gesellschaft für Typenkunde des 15. Jahrhunderts
[Publications of the Typology (Printing Study/Science?) of the 15th Cent.]
We were able to find an online copy of the referenced document here: https://archive.org/details/verffentlichun00gese

We are unable to find an example of a dividing iron in the Pic Dic, however, a link to the online site Jost Amman: Glazier (*Ständebuch*), 1568 found at (http://www.habsburger.net/en/media/jost-amman-glazier-standebuch-1568) shows a woodcut of a glazier's shop with what the submitter identifies as several dividing irons hanging on the wall behind the craftsman (see image #2 below). What stood out as immediately identifiable upon seeing that tool, was it represented an antique soldering iron (see image #3 below). (https://picclick.com/Lot-of-2-Vintage-Antique-Copper-Soldering-Irons-332337661582.html). And in tandem with the grozing iron, it makes perfectly good sense in the context of stained glass windows, for which this tool was reportedly used. The initial search for an image of a period soldering iron, yielded the color image seen in image #4 and found here: (https://paleotool.com/2014/08/11/medieval-tinsmith/) Seeking a better/more scholarly source for that image, or something similar, yielded the following online resource: Das Hausbuch der Mendelschen Zwölfbrüderstiftung in Nürnberg [The Household Book of the Mendel Twelve Brother Foundation in Nuremberg] found at (http://homepage.univie.ac.at/rudolf.koch/mendel/m_inh1.htm) under the heading Flaschen- und Pfannenschmied, Beckenschlager [bottle maker, and (cooking) pan manufacturer, kettle smith], the listing/link to Laternenmacher [lantern maker], 1536 (155v) shows a B&W image of the same picture here: (http://homepage.univie.ac.at/rudolf.koch/mendel/083.jpg)

Research online for the terms "medieval soldering tools" led to the following document:

English Medieval Industries: Craftsmen, Techniques, Products edited by John Blair, Nigel Ramsay (https://books.google.com/books?id=mxjCN8R4pgsC&pg=PA121&lpg=PA121&dq=medieval+soldering+tools&source =bl&ots=VcAPo-epYy&sig=HXGrQ12ap5SZSoGqAT0wbHWPu7w&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjCpIr2xdDVAhUI04MKHTVmC88Q 6AEIZzAJ#v=onepage&q=medieval%20soldering%20tools&f=false)
A search of the .pdf for the term soldering, makes mention of soldering irons in use to at least 1427.

6: Cristine Tailleur -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2006, via Calontir.

Argent, a chevron rompu purpure between two weaver's tablets vert and a Lochaber axe, a bordure sable

This is a resub of a device that was returned on the April 2007 LoAR:

Argent, a chevron rompu rayonny to chief purpure between two flutes palewise vert and a Lochaber axe sable.

This device is returned for combining two complex lines of division, which has consistently been grounds for return since at least 1992.

This redesign leaves out the rayonny line of division, and changes the flutes to weaver's tablets.

7: Deomotheor Zÿdmond -New Device

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

Azure crusily of two-barred crosses a bordure Or

The name was registered on the June 2017 LoAR.

See attachment for documentation of the two-barred cross in this submission. It is an apparent variation of the Hungarian Cross, aka the Patriarchal Cross. Seen in image of ruler Bela IV of Hungary, issuing from a trimount.

This cross image was found at:

10: Lynette Jaclyn Davejean -New Device

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Lynette Jaclyn Davéjean in March of 1993, via the Middle.

Azure, a dove and on a chief argent between two roses proper, for augmentation on a delf purpure a cross of Calatrava Or.

This is a Pennsic submission.

The submitter's device was registered in 1993 via the Middle: Azure, a dove and on a chief argent, two roses proper. The registered standard augmentation for Calontir is Purpure, a cross of Calatrava and a bordure Or. For reasons of contrast, this submission omits the bordure.

Correction to Device (2017-Aug-31 07:08:29): As was politely pointed out, this is an Augmentation, not a new device. I apologize for any confusion caused by my error.
