East ILoI dated 2016-10-03

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

This letter includes the second batch of the Pennsic submissions.

Commentary on this letter will close on October 31, 2016.

1: Alianora la Tesserande -New Device Change

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Alianora la tesserande in April of 2009, via the East.

Purpure, on a pile Or, a peacock feather palewise purpure

Old Item: Purpure, in pale two compass stars and in fess a decrescent and an increscent argent., to be released.


2: Ana Ximenez de Hume -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in March of 2007, via the East.

(Fieldless) On a flame gules a dandelion in seed slipped and leaved argent.


3: Andreiko Eferiev -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 2009, via the East.

Gules, a cloud sable within a bordure Or

The submitter's original submission, Gules, a cloud sable, was returned on the November 13, 2014 East Kingdom LoD for the following reasons:

This device is returned due to two issues. First, there is a conflict with the badge of Hillary Stormrider (Oct. 1980, Atenveldt): (Fieldless) Issuant from the base of a cloud sable a lightning flash palewise Or. A visual review of Hilary's badge shows that the lightning flash is maintained and thus does not count for conflict purposes. That leaves only a single DC between this device and Hilary's badge. Second, although the Individually Attested Pattern of placing sable charges on gules was documented from Germany armory, insufficient evidence was presented of clouds as a charge in German armory.

The identical device was resubmitted to take advantage of the August 2015 change in the rules regarding maintained charges, and was then returned on the TODO Easern LoD for conflict with the badge of Mell mac Alpin (November 2015, Calontir): (Fieldless) A cloud sable.

The addition of the bordure clears the conflict with Mell mac Alpin.

This device is being submitted as an IAP for complex sable charges on a gules field in English heraldry. Sable charges on gules are common:

http://www.bodley.ox.ac.uk/dept/scwmss/wmss/medieval/mss/lat/misc/e/086.htm - fol 38V-39R has "Sable, a cross formy gules" - probably not complex enough, but it's a start. This is a 15th Century English manuscript.

English and Anglicized Irish are part of the same language group in Appendix C.

OGRESS NOTE: I thought I fixed the conflict with the submitter at Pennsic; apparently it didn't get uploaded. Let me reach out for her before this reaches an ILoI and confirm my memory.

Correction to Name (2016-Oct-11 16:10:38): Information recovered from Pennsic notes. This is NOT Alys speaking as Pellicane-elect, this is Alys individually, reporting a conversation with a submitter.

If necessary to clear conflicts, the submitter requests the addition of a patronymic byname: Brigid nyn Thomas O'Neill

The pattern of female given name + patronymic + O-style byname is found in Mari's "Names from Anglicized Irish Documents" (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnglicizedIrish/Feminine.shtml). Examples include:


Anstace nyne James O Murroghe (1601)

The exact patronymic byname nyn Thomas appears in the same article in the name of Joan nyn Thomas (1601), found s.n. Joan.

The Pennsic Herald's Point staff did not find any registered "Thomas O'Neill," but commenters should double-check whether such a relationship issue exists (because Pennsic).
