Æthelmearc ILoI dated 2019-02-08

Greetings unto Sofie Silver Buccle and the College of Heralds of the Kingdom of Æthelmearc. This is Æ213, internal letter of intent. It is the intent of the Garnet office to submit the following elements to the Laurel Sovereign of Arms for registration.

1: Alana Horsecroft -New Name & New Device

Per pale purpure and argent, two Swedish vallhunds rampant addorsed counterchanged Or and sable.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Spelling most important.

Herald of Record: Elsbeth Anne Roth

Alana: (fem of Alan) Latin from Clairvaux, France, 1179, Old French Alaine from Paris, 1313. Latin Alanus from Spalding, Lincolnshire, England, 1381. See Uckelman. "Alana" in S.L> Uckelman. ed. The Dictionary of medieval Names from European Sources, Ed. 2017, no 1 http://dmnes.org/name/Alana

Horsecroft: R&W s.n. Horscroft, lists Horsecrofte in 1333. "Aranhwy, Index of Names in the 1381 Suffolk Poll Tax" lists Horsecroft (without the suffix e)

NOTE: Client had asked for "of the Horse Clans", but consultant could find no documentation.

2: Arthis of the Debatable Lands -Resub Name

Submitter has no desire as to gender.
Sound (AR-thes) most important.

Herald of Record: Elsbeth Anne Roth

Previously submitted as Arthes MacLeod, it was returned at Kingdom in November 2015 due to client requesting authenticity for 16th century Scottish, but not allowing any major OR minor changes to the submitted form.

Arthis is supposedly the Welsh feminine of Arthur. An Arthis is cited at FamilySearch, married to Henry Axford and buried May 1648 in Cornwall (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J8PF-K2Z). Batch number is I06791-6, which is evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

A similar spelling to this name, Artis, is found as an English surname in FamilySearch: Ann Artis, female, christened 25 Feb 1558, Spexhall, Suffolk, England (batch P01386-1, https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J33K-YFQ).

Client would prefer Arthes if that spelling could be documented.

Debatable Lands is the name of a SCA barony, registered in December 1975.

3: Brienne Lachlan -New Name & New Device

Argent, a chevron issuant from sinister, overall a fess, a bordure sable.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.

Herald of Record: Kryss Kostarev

Brienne is a female surname found in a FamilySearch record for Sara Brienne, christening date 03 Apr 1640. Batch #C04903-1 https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/V5LK-K4L

Use of a surname as a given name in late period English names is permitted by precedent set in the September 2012 LoAR - http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2012/09/12-09cl.html#5

Lachlan: is found in Family Search Historical Records:

William Lachlan, male, born 19 Mar 1648 in Midlothian, Scotland Batch #C19506-1 https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XTRP-3MK : accessed 2/23/19

4: Cunedda Kell -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in November of 1997, via Æthelmearc.

Ermine, two horses rampant addorsed vert.

Herald of Record: Elsbeth Anne Roth

5: Dorothea Stark Schütz -Resub Device

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Dorothea Stark Sch?tz in July of 2016, via Æthelmearc.

Per chevron gules and azure, a chevron enhanced and an ermine ermine maintaining in its mouth a ring Or.

Herald of Record: Elsbeth Anne Roth

Client's previous submission, Per chevron gules and azure, a chevron ermine between two castles Or and an ermine argent marked sable maintaining in its mouth a ring argent, was returned at kingdom for excessive complexity. This is a minor redesign to fix the problem.

6: Hagar Blisher -New Name & New Device

Argent, on a roundel quarterly vert and sable, a plate.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Meaning (Hagar the Blushing) most important.

Herald of Record: Elsbeth Anne Roth

Hagar: "English Names from 16th and Early 17th C Marriage Records from Somerset" by Sara Uckelman (www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/english/somerset.html). Hagar is dated to 1605.

Blisher: MED lists 'blishen' c.1450, meaning 'to turn red in shame, blush'.

Client would prefer "the Blushing" as a by-name if possible.

7: Isabetta Simona da Murano -New Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Æthelmearc LoI of May 20, 2018 as submitted.

Agent, five roses in saltire azure.

Herald of Record: Elsbeth Anne Roth

8: Robert Hawksworth -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in March of 2017, via Æthelmearc.

Vert, a chevron inverted sable fimbriated between three rabbits one and two rampant contourny argent.

Herald of Record: Elsbeth Anne Roth

What's he that wishes so? My cousin, Westmorland? No, my fair cousin; If we are mark'd to die, we are enough To do our country loss; and if to live, The fewer men, the greater share of honour. God's will! I pray thee, wish not one man more. By Jove, I am not covetous for gold, Nor care I who doth feed upon my cost; It yearns me not if men my garments wear; Such outward things dwell not in my desires. But if it be a sin to covet honour, I am the most offending soul alive. No, faith, my coz, wish not a man from England. God's peace! I would not lose so great an honour As one man more methinks would share from me For the best hope I have. O, do not wish one more! Rather proclaim it, Westmorland, through my host, That he which hath no stomach to this fight, Let him depart; his passport shall be made, And crowns for convoy put into his purse; We would not die in that man's company That fears his fellowship to die with us.

This day is call'd the feast of Crispian. He that outlives this day, and comes safe home, Will stand a tip-toe when this day is nam'd, And rouse him at the name of Crispian. He that shall live this day, and see old age, Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours, And say "To-morrow is Saint Crispian." Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars, And say "These wounds I had on Crispin's day." Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot, But he'll remember, with advantages, What feats he did that day. Then shall our names, Familiar in his mouth as household words--Harry the King, Bedford and Exeter, Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester-- Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb'red. This story shall the good man teach his son; And Crispin Crispianus shall ne'er go by, From this day to the ending of the world, But we in it shall be remembered-- We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; For he today that sheds his blood with me Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile, This day shall gentle his condition; And gentlemen in England now a-bed Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here, And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day. --Henry V (Act IV, Scene iii)
