Greetings unto the heralds of the East Kingdom and the Known World!

Consulting Herald: Brita Mairi Svensdottir


2: Aiden Underhill -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the East LoI of August 31, 2015 as submitted.

Vert semy of frets conjoined and on a chief Or a trimount vert between two trees proper

Consulting Heralds: Tanczos Istvan and Marie de Blois

The submitter's original armory, Vert, semy of frets conjoined Or, was returned on the January 2016 East Kingdom Letter of Decision with the following explanation:

This device is returned for conflict with the device of Medwe Janos (August 1998, West): Vert fretty Or, a quatrefoil argent. "Semy of frets conjoined" is, in our opinion, indistinguishable from "fretty". In Society heraldry, fretty is considered a charge. There is therefore a single DC for removing the tertiary quatrefoil.

The re-design adds additional differences in an effort to clear the conflict.

The trees used in this device are taken from the Pictorial Dictionary of Heraldry (http://mistholme.com/dictionary/tree/).

OSCAR finds the name on the East LoI of January 31, 2016 as submitted.

Per pale purpure and argent, a sword between two wolves combatant counterchanged

Consulting Herald Llewellyn Walsh


18: Hedda Bonesetter -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the East LoI of January 31, 2016 as submitted.

Azure, on a comet inverted bendwise sinister Or between in bend two bones fracted palewise argent, a mullet gules

The identical device was returned on the January 2016 East Kingdom Letter of Decision for a redraw, with the following explanation:

This device is returned for redraw. The commenters and Blue Tyger found the bones to be unidentifiable. On redraw, it may help to draw the "knobs" on both sides of the bones and to make the separation between the two halves smaller.


19: Ile du Dragon Dormant, Baronnie de l' -New Order Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in April of 2013, via the East.

Award of the Dragons Scale

<Scale> (ladder) is both a period artefact and charge. The spelling <scale> is found in the Middle English Dictionary s.v. scāle (n.(2)) dated to 1425. [http://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/m/mec/med-idx?type=id&id=MED38712]

scāle (n.(2)) Also skale, schale.

1. (a) A ladder; (b) fig. of the cross or the Virgin Mary: a means by which man ascends to heaven or eternal life; (c) a scaling ladder used in sieges; (d) one of the rungs of a ladder.

A scaling ladder is found in the arms of von Bredaw in Siebmacher Dem Wappenbuch p174. [http://www.wappenbuch.de/pages/wappen_174_Siebmacher.htm]

<Dragon> is a 16th cen. English surname which can be used as a given name by precedent:

Ellyn Dragon; Female; Christening; 12 Feb 1575; Saint Thomas, Salisbury, Wiltshire, England; Batch: C15348-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NDB2-2M6)

Henry Dragon; Male; Marriage; 08 Nov 1586; Saint James, Clerkenwell, London, England; Batch: M00141-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:V52S-CHG)

The registration of Order of Irons Bell in Nov. 2014 supports the pattern <Award of Dragons Scale>:

Carillion, Barony of. Order name Order of Irons Bell and badge. (Fieldless) A bell per pale sable and Or. Submitted as Order of Irons Bell, the name was changed in kingdom to Order of Iron to match the documentation that could be found.

The submitted form was documented as the constructed given name of a saint Iron followed by an object associated with him, a bell. This follows the pattern of Saint + Other in Juliana de Luna's article, "Medieval Secular Order Names" (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/order/new/). German examples that use the possessive form of the saint's name are Ritterschaft sant Gergen Shiltz ("Knightly-society of saint George's Shield") and Geselschaft auf St. Wilhelms Schilt ("Society on Saint William's Shield"), in Germany and Austria, respectively. Siren noted after the Pelican decision meeting that separate German orders named after the same saints included the forms Jorgern ("George[rs]") and Die Wilhelmer ("The William[ers]") along with forms using the word "saint". There is no reason to think that the same variability could not happen with order names that include objects as well. Thus, we can allow order names following the pattern saint + other or saint + object of veneration to omit the word Saint before the possessive form of the given name.

Although such examples were found only in Germany, patterns of order names tend to be pan-European (i.e., similar patterns are used throughout Europe). Therefore, we will give the Barony the benefit of the doubt that the submitted name is also plausible in English, and can register this name as submitted.

As per SENA NPN.1.B.2

The standard designators are Order and Award. Any pattern suitable for one such designator is suitable for the other.

The Barony will accept adding the locative Ile du Dragon Dormant if needed to clear conflict.

The Shire de l'Ile du Dragon Dormant was originally registered in January 1985 and advanced to Baronial status in March 2005.
