Calontir ILoI dated 2018-09-22

Wesaþ hal!

To Brigida von München, Gold Falcon, and to the esteemed members of the College of Heralds comes this missive from Dorcas Whitecap, Eyas. I seek your wise counsel on the following submissions, to prepare them for registration.

1: Agnes von Heidelberg -New Badge Change

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

Argent, on a bend between two chrysanthemums azure, three hawk's bells palewise Or

Old Item: Argent, on a bend between two daisies azure three hawk's bells palewise Or, to be released.
This submission is to be associated with Chiba Suzu


2: Caitilín inghean Uí Lochlainn -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name on the Calontir LoI of January 02, 2017 as submitted.

(Fieldless) An increscent sable

This name was registered in April 2017 (via Calontir).


3: Cerric æt Blæcac -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2016, via Calontir.

Azure, on a pale argent an oak tree eradicated trunked sable leaved and fructed vert

Original device Azure, on a plate an oak tree eradicated vert trunked sable. was returned on the October 2016 LoAR:

This device is returned for conflict with the device of Joorkin Volz: Azure, a labyrinth argent. A labyrinth is treated as a diapered roundel. Thus we get a DC for adding the tertiary tree, but nothing for type of primary charge.

The submitter has permission to conflict with the device of Catrin of Llanbadern: Azure, on a plate a rowan tree proper all within a bordure engrailed argent.

Putting the tree on a pale rather than a roundel clears the conflict.


4: Eyfríðr Geirsdóttir -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name on the Calontir LoI of April 30, 2017 as submitted.

(Fieldless) A triskelion of spirals Or

This name was registered in July of 2017 (via Calontir).

There is a step from period practice for the use of a triskelion of spirals.


5: Felix Feyrer -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Calontir LoI of February 28, 2017 as submitted.

Or, a phoenix gules issuant from flames and a bordure rayonny azure

This name was registered in May of 2017 (via Calontir).

The original device, Or, a phoenix gules issuant from flames azure, was returned at kingdom for conflict with Bótfríðr í eplagarði (registered in Feb 2016 via the East). That gentle declined to grant permission to conflict. This design adds a bordure rayonny azure to clear the conflict.

This item is a resub at kingdom, and will need to be marked as New if/when it advances to an ELoI.


6: Grete Traurnicht -Resub Device

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

Argent, in fess two thyrsi proper and on a chief vert an arrow Or

This name was registered in May of 2017 (via Calontir).

This device was returned on the LoAR dated June 2018:

This device is returned for redraw. The arrowhead and fletchings of the tertiary charge were so small that most commenters struggled to identify it as an arrow. Upon resubmission, please drastically increase the size of both the fletchings and the broadhead.

This redraw addresses those issues.

Spelling (Belfyre) most important.

This order name follows the pattern of Orders named after a person, identified in "Medieval Secular Order Names" by Juliana de Luna (http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/order/new/). The May 2011 LoAR states that "[a] given name can be used to create an order name (one named after a founder or inspiration)." [Order of Taillefer, 5/2011 LoAR, A-Lochac].

Belfyre is a 16th cen. English surname found in the Family Search Historical Records: Harrie Belfyre 28 Jan. 1576 Rangeworthy, Gloucester England, batch# C04935-1

As per the September 2012 LoAR cover letter (https://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2012/09/12-09cl.html#5) "family names documented in sixteenth century England may be used to create given names."
