Calontir ILoI dated 2019-03-22

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: Alanna of Golden Sea -New Device

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

Per pall argent, purpure and gules, a mortar and pestle vert and two feathers argent


2: Aleit de la Thomme -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2009, via Atlantia.

Per saltire vert and argent


3: Calontir, Kingdom of -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 1983, via Calontir.

(Fieldless) On a baker's peel bendwise sinister Or a cross of Calatrava palewise purpure

This submission is to be associated with Calontir Bakers Guild

The previous submission was returned on the November 2018 LoAR.

This device is returned for redraw. The primary charge in this depiction was blazoned as a baker's peel. However, the handle of the peel is less than half the length of the charge. Period baker's peels had long handles, typically at least two-thirds of the overall length of the charge. This depiction is closer to a modern baker's peel, a scoop, or a hand-bell. Given that the badge is intended to be associated with the Calontir Bakers' Guild, we feel that returning for a redraw is a better service to the submitter than reblazoning to a charge that has nothing to do with baking.

This redraw was provided by Logan Munro (thank you!) and is approved by the submitter.


4: Cosimo Laffo Taddeo Andreini -New Name Change

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in January of 2003, via Calontir.

Old Item: Geoffrey de Cardeville, to be retained as an alternate name.
Submitter desires a masculine name.
Culture (late period Italian) most important.

Cosimo - listed 196 times as a masculine given name in the article "Italian Names from the 'Online Tratte of Office Holders 1282-1532' " by Sara K. Uckelman. URL: http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/italian/tratte/

Laffo - listed 1 time as a masculine given name in the article "A Listing of all Men's Given Names from the Condado Section of the Florence Catasto of 1427" by Juliana de Luna. URL: https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/juliana/condado/mensalpha.html

Taddeo - listed 27 times as a masculine given name in the article "A Listing of all Men's Given Names from the Condado Section of the Florence Catasto of 1427" by Juliana de Luna. URL: https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/juliana/condado/mensalpha.html

Andreini - Francisco Andreini, born 1548, died 1624, was a founder of a star of "Compagnia dei Gelosi," an early acting troupe. URL: https://www.britannica.com/biography/Francesco-Andreini (copy included)

SENA Appendix A notes that the attested naming pattern for Italian is 2 given names but having 3 given names is a late period pattern.

5: David ben Benjamin -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2003, via Calontir.

(Fieldless) A Jew's hat per pale gules and vert

Submitter's previous badge, (Fieldless) On a dexter hand apaumy 'in birkat kohanim' argent a laurel wreath vert, was returned at kingdom for using a laurel wreath. This is a complete redesign. This must be marked as new if/when it advances to the ELoI.


6: Fergus MacGhie -New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.

Fergus - masculine given name found in "Manx Names in the Early 16th Century" by Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn (Heather Rose Jones). http://heraldry.sca.org/names/jonesmanx16.html

MacGhie - patronymic found in Black, s.n. Macghie p. 496, Makghie 1617. Further documented in FamilySearch: John Macghie, marriage, 19 Jul 1634, Prestonpans, East Lothian, Scotland, batch# M11718-4. https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XTG2-PZN

SENA Appendix A notes the standard patronymic marker for Scots is "Mac".

Submitter prefers spelling with capital M and capital G. Any assistance documenting that spelling would be appreciated.


7: Frederic Martel -New Device Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 1996, via Calontir.

Sable, a bull's head cabossed and on a chief argent three roses gules

Old Item: Sable, two horses combatant and on a chief argent three roses proper, to be released.


8: Gawayne ap Tristam -Resub Augmentation of Arms

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 1988, via Calontir.

Vairy gules and Or, a dragon segreant to sinister sable, and for augmentation the dragon maintaining an escutcheon purpure charged with a cross of Calatrava Or

Submitter's previous attempt was returned on the December 2018 LoAR.

This augmentation is returned for violation of SENA A3B, which requires that charges have good contrast with their fields. SENA A3A3 states that while augmentations may violate certain style rules, they "must maintain good contrast with the field or charge that it is on." In this submission, the escutcheon bears a bordure Or which directly overlaps several Or vair bells on the field, providing no contrast.

This resubmission uses the Ensign of Calontir for augmentation, which we expect to be designated as a Standard Augmentation on the April 2019 LoAR.

This item on the late March ILoI means it will reach the ELoI in early May, after the Ensign is designated as a standard augmentation. If my timing is off, this item can be held until such designation. If the Ensign is NOT designated such, then this auggie will require LoPtC from TRMs.


9: Jacob Forster -New Name & New Device

Argent, a hurst of pine trees vert and a chief nebuly azure

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Language (German) most important.

Jacob is found as a masculine German given name in "German Names from Nürnberg, 1497" by Sara L. Uckelman known in the SCA as Aryanhwy merch Catmael; https://heraldry.sca.org/names/german/nurnberg1497.html

Forster is found as a German surname occurring 18 times in "German Names from Nürnberg, 1497: A - M" by Sara L. Uckelman known in the SCA as Aryanhwy merch Catmael; http://heraldry.sca.org/names/german/surnamesnurna-m.html


10: Jakob Bierayge -New Badge

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

(Fieldless) In pale a weasel rampant argent conjoined to a hop cone vert


11: Kasiniia Bjarnardottir -Resub Device

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

Per fess purpure and argent, a demi-bear issuant from the line of division maintaining a sage flower and an open book counterchanged

The previous submission was returned on the December 2018 LoAR.

This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2 which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." Commenters unanimously noted their struggle to identify both the bear, which some confused for a badger or a wolverine, and the sage blossom, which they could not identify at all.
This redraw was provided by Gunnvor Orle (thank you!), and is approved by the submitter.


12: Katherine O'Halloran -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 1997, via Calontir.

Per bend sinister azure and Or, a sun in splendor counterchanged


13: Marian Beardsley -New Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Calontir LoI of March 08, 2019 as submitted.

Pupure, an open book Or between three owls argent


14: Piers Fauconer -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2001, via Calontir.

Per fess wavy azure and Or, an anchor azure


15: Sorcha Rowantree -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Spelling (Rowantree last name) most important.

Sorcha - Gaelic feminine given name dated 1480 - 1639 in "Index of Names in Irish Annals: Sorcha" by Mari Elspeth nic Bryan (Kathleen M. O'Brien) https://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Feminine/Sorcha.shtml

Rowantree - constructed English surname. Consider these examples from FamilySearch.org.

Thomas Appletree, 04 May 1555, Saint Martin in the Fields, Westminster, London, England, batch P00145-1 https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J38C-TJG

Suzan Crabtree, 22 Oct 1592, Halifax, York, England, batch P00749-1 https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J37P-4ML

Thomas Greentree, 01 Apr 1593, Stedham, Sussex, England, batch C07116-1 https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JWFX-K57

Richard Rowntree, 15 May 1571, Great Stainton, Durham, England, batch P00060-1 (this may be the same one that is in Juetta's article!) https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N58J-855

Elizabeth Rawntree, 03 Oct 1632, Saint Peter, Leeds, York, England, batch M00962-1 (if you click the link, it doesn't have a batch number. If you search with the batch number, you'll find it ) https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N2QM-L6F

Anne Rownetree, 12 May 1640, Ingleby Greenhow, York, England, batch M00913-1 https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N2Q4-N8C

William Ronetree, 12 Jul 1592, Thirsk, York, England, batch M01496-1 https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NVBW-X8W

The last 4 examples are surely variations of the requested spelling <Rowantree>.

Consider also these examples from FamilySearch.org.

Johne Rowan, 25 Aug 1632 Clackmannan, Clackmannan, Scotland, batch M11466-2

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XTLG-NJC

Johnne Rowan, 13 Jul 1609, Edinburgh Parish, Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland, batch M11982-3 https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XYM6-24K

Andro Rowan, 09 Apr 1609, Fossoway And Tulliebole, Kinross, Scotland, batch M11461-2 https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XT51-N32

Given the examples of <Xtree> names, and given that the spelling <Rowan> existed in names, it's not a stretch to accept <Rowantree> as a plausible surname.

SENA Appendix C supports combining Gaelic and English name elements, both early and late.

Surname originally submitted as <Rowantree>, documentation on the form supports double byname <Rowan Tree>. Submitter has been contacted, and will accept that, if <Rowantree> is not sufficiently demonstrated.

Rowan - English surname found in FamilySearch. Edwarde Rowan, male, Christening Date 15 Mar 1575, TAYNTON, GLOUCESTER, ENGLAND, batch #C03235-2 https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J7M1-7RH

Tree - English surname found in FamilySearch. John Tree, Male, Burial Date 19 Jan 1618, Ashford Towne, Kent Co., England, batch #B06515-6 https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JD4R-TMS

SENA Appendix A supports double bynames for late period English.


16: Valdís Œðikollr -New Name & New Device

Quarterly argent ermined purpure and bendy sinister azure and Or, a crow rising gules

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Valdís - Old Norse feminine name, GB p. 15.

Œðikollr - Old Norse byname meaning "mad-head, wild man", GB p. 30.

Preliminary permission to conflict has been received from Ms. Elen verch Phelip, in Ansteorra. Formal paperwork to follow.

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in January of 2003, via Calontir.

Old Item: Madeleine Rose de Cardeville, to be retained as an alternate name.
Submitter desires a feminine name.

18: Wilhelm von Brandt -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Calontir LoI of September 08, 2018 as submitted.

Per saltire argent and azure, a phoenix Or within a bordure counterchanged

Previous submission was returned on the December 2018 LoAR.

This device is returned for conflict with the device of Jessica Llyrindi of Northmarch: Gyronny sable and gules, a phoenix Or, issuant from flames proper. There is one DC for changing the field, but changing the flames from proper to Or is, in essence, changing only one-quarter of the tincture of the charge, which isn't enough for the second DC.
Adding a bordure clears that conflict without introducing any new ones.


Commentary is due by 21 April 2019 either in OSCAR or via email to <eyas@calontir.org>. The online decision meeting will be Monday 22 April 2019. Ic þe þancie (I thank you) in advance for your assistance!

Sien ge hal,

~Dorcas Eyas
