July 2016 LOAR Results

Greetings to All,

The Armorial has been update to reflect the items in this LOAR.

In Service,

Vert Hawk Herald

CALONTIR
* Æþelwyn æt Grenawice. Name.
Submitted as Æþelwynne æt Grenawic, the given name Æþelwynne is an inflected form, not the nominative (base) form required for a given name. Therefore, we have changed it to Æþelwyn.

The place name Grenawic is required by Old English grammar to be in the dative case. Therefore, we have changed it to Grenawice to register this name.

* Aldred Ketcham. Badge. (Fieldless) Issuant from a tower vert, in chief a demi-sword inverted argent.

* Alienor Walcott. Device. Argent fretty azure, a linden leaf and on a chief vert an arrow argent.
Please advise the submitter to draw the arrow with a thicker shaft.

* Angelus Vulpis. Name and device. Sable, a winged fox sejant affronty and on a chief argent a rose azure between two roses gules.
Nice name from 13th century Pisa!

* Asgeirr Hrafnhauss. Name and device. Argent, a sinister clenched gauntlet bendwise aversant sustaining a double-bitted axe bendwise sinister azure, on a chief sable a skull argent.

* Hildibrandr Tjúguskegg. Name and device. Per pale vert and sable, two dragons addorsed, a chief Or.

* Holta-Fj{o,}rleif. Name.

* Hugo Smith. Name and device. Sable, a sea-stag argent attired, collared and chained, maintaining a mallet Or.
This exact name is found in English parish records from 1588 in the FamilySearch Historical Records, making this an excellent 16th century English name!

* Justinian of Tanet. Name.
Justinian is the name of a 6th century Welsh saint.
* Lucrezia Contarini. Device. Per pale argent and sable, two dogs sejant erect respectant forepaws conjoined counterchanged, on a chief azure three leaves bendwise sinister inverted Or.

* Morgan Stone. Name and device. Sable, a chevron purpure fimbriated surmounted by a griffin, in dexter chief a cinquefoil argent.
Morgan was documented as a Welsh name in the Letter of Intent. It is also a late period English given name dated to 1576 and 1597 in the FamilySearch Historical Records. Therefore, this name can be considered wholly English.

Nice 16th century English or Anglo-Welsh name!

There is a step from period practice for the use of a charge overall with a fimbriated ordinary.

*Morwenna de Merbotyl. Name. Morwenna is the name of a Cornish saint, venerated through much of our period.

*Thaddeus Ellenbach. Device. Lozengy azure and argent, a lion contourny maintaining a sword Or, a bordure sable

Getting Started in Silent Heraldry

silentherald
Ed. Note:  This article is based on an interview with Mistress Nesscia inghean Chearnaigh, as well as notes provided by her.  Neither the Falcon Banner nor Mistress Nesscia endorse any of the listed links, which are provided for information only.  Nesscia encourages anyone exploring this path to try several of these sources and find the best fit.  

 
Mistress Nesscia came to the SCA because of Silent Heraldry. She had long time friends who had found the SCA and needed access, so she came along to interpret for them. “I had nasty, old, thrown together costumes” she laughs.  But she soon became enchanted in her own right; “As I looked around it was like ‘This is really cool. Look at what these people are doing. Let me play too.'”

Now Nessica teaches and encourages others in the art of Silent Heraldry. The Falcon Banner recently asked her for some advice on how someone can become a Silent Herald.

    • Start taking classes in American Sign Language (ASL).  Just like a voice herald, you must have a basic knowledge of the language in order to be understood.  Your local college, university or other community resource may have continuing ed courses available. If not, several online resources are listed below.
    • It is very difficult to acquire a language in isolation, especially if you are not attending classes in person.  Find a practice partner.  Engage your child, your spouse, your neighbor or anyone else willing to come along on this journey with your.
    • If you don’t have anyone in your daily life who can assist, there are online groups for practicing with others, via online video.  You can also video chat with someone else in the Kingdom who is involved in Silent Heraldry.  Remember you will need a web camera to participate in these groups.
    • Avoid books on ASL.  It is very difficult for the beginner to look at a two dimensional picture and translate accurately into a three dimensional medium.  Beginners can end up practicing and memorizing the wrong thing.  “It takes twice as long to unlearn something and learn it the right way,” Nesscia advises.  With the availability of video sources, she does not advise hard copy sources at all.
    • Hang out with other Silent Heralds.  Nesscia has a Youtube channel to show the signs for some words that are SCA specific, but much of the nuances of Silent Heraldry are “word of mouth.”  You can also get opportunities to actually do Silent Heraldry this way;  “I’m willing, if you are taking a sign language class, come on, Ill get you up there!” Nesscia says.

Seeking Deputy Lanner Herald

Reposted from the Calonlist
Greetings all

I am seeking a deputy for the position of Lanner Herald.

Many of you have no idea that this position exists, much less what it does. The Lanner Herald’s job is to help with ceremonies in Calontir. I have some time left on my warrant, but I have a project in mind and I need some help.

Calontir has a big book of ceremonies, but this big book is rarely referenced in part because few people know of it and it is not readily available. It is my desire to improve Calontir’s ceremonies by cataloging this big book and all the other ceremonies I can get my grubby little hands upon. This is not a small undertaking and I need help. What I need is someone to scan / transcribe the ceremonies so that I can electronically catalogue them.

Qualifications: An interest in ceremonies, both in the SCA and in history. Constant access to a computer, to help digitize things. A willingness and desire to organize things. Ideas for how you’d like to see things done better.

This is a long-term project. Applicants should expect that by becoming deputy, they will eventually become Lanner themselves. This project thus requires a commitment. Also, applicants should be prepared to actively reach out to those who might need ceremonies.

If you are interested, please email me at rob@kotn.org. I will be accepting applications through King’s Company of Archers.

Heraldic Policy Change

Good afternoon Calontir! This is an official announcement of a policy change, decided on at CalonCon.

As of this date and by my authority as Gold Falcon, the Calontir College of Heralds will now offer free resubmission of returned names, devices, or badges for 5 years (60 months) from the date of return. This is an increase from the old policy of one year (12 months). As this is not a matter of Kingdom Law but heraldic policy it goes in to effect immediately.

Additionally, this is retroactive. If you have had a name, device, or badge returned within the last five years you may resubmit a changed item at no cost. Please submit through your local herald or directly to Saker Herald (directions can be found in the Calontir Heraldry website on the kingdom page).

January 2016 LOAR Results

Greetings to All,

Below are the results of this LOAR.

The Armorial and Saker website will be updated this evening to reflect the items in this letter.

In Service,

Gunnar Thorisson

Vert Hawk Herald

CALONTIR acceptances
* Cecilia Manetti da Firenze.  Reblazon of device. Per bend sinister vert and gules, a bend sinister between a mouse sejant erect and a pair of manacles, the chain fracted argent.
Blazoned when registered in January 1998 as Per bend vert and gules, a bend between a mouse sejant erect and a pair of manacles, the chain fracted argent, this is actually a per bend sinister field with a bend sinister.
* Cuthbert Longschankes.  Device (see RETURNS for badge). Per pale azure and Or, on a roundel counterchanged an owl argent.
* Eynon ab Iohannes Mal.  Device. Azure, a demi-sheep argent issuant from a bickern maintaining in its mouth a falchion bendwise inverted Or and a chief Or crusily azure.* Hubert de Stockleye.  Name change from Wulfhere of Eofeshamme.
The submitted requested authenticity for 13th-14th century England. This name is authentic for the 1270s, meeting the submitter’s request.
The submitter’s previous name, Wulfhere of Eofeshamme, is retained as an alternate name.* Isabeau Ruiz.  Name.* Katherine von Heilige.  Name change from holding name Katherine of Forgotten Sea.
Submitted as Katherine die Heilige, this name was pended to discuss whether this name presumed upon the name of Saint Catherine, especially due to the use of the demi-Catherine’s wheel in the submitter’s device.
Saints are occasionally referred to by [given name] die Heilige in modern German, although the reverse order (die Heilige [given name] appears more frequently. The use of die Heilige (“the saint”) is presumptuous under PN4D1 of SENA, as this name appears to make a claim to be the historical St. Catherine. We note that unmarked forms like Heylig and von den Heiligen are not presumptuous because they are attested as the bynames of non-saints in our period.
The submitter allowed a change to the attested byname von Heilige (based on Von Heilige, found in the FamilySearch Historical Records). We have made this change. If she prefers Heylig (or other attested unmarked form) or von den Heiligen, she can submit a request for reconsideration.
This name was pended from the August 2015 Letter of Acceptances and Returns.

* Kezia von Holzenhaus.  Badge. Argent, a billet and a bordure sable.

* Layla bint `Asim.  Name and device. Azure, in fess a mullet and a decrescent Or, a bordure wavy argent.
Please advise the submitter to draw deeper waves on the bordure and the primary charges larger so they fill better the available space.

* Mell MacAlpin.  Badge. (Fieldless) A snail gules attired and shelled Or.
* Mell MacAlpin.  Badge. Per fess embattled azure and Or, in chief three buckets inverted argent.
* Mell MacAlpin.  Badge. Per pale Or and gules, two dragon’s heads couped addorsed counterchanged.
This is the submitter’s sixth piece of registered armory.

* Miranda de Logan.  Name (see RETURNS for device).
Miranda is the submitter’s legal given name. We note that it is also a grey period English literary name. Recently, we ruled the following:
Miranda is the submitter’s legal given name as well as the name of a gray area literary character from Shakespeare’s Tempest and a late 16th century English byname which can be registered as a given name. Therefore, the submitter need not rely on the legal name allowance. [Miranda Mór ingen Fhailtigern, June 2015, A-An Tir]
The instance of Miranda as a late period English byname in that decision inadvertently relied on an I-batch in the FamilySearch Historical Records. I batches continue to be acceptable only on a case-by-case basis, and should not be used as the sole documentation to support a name element.
Therefore, as Miranda does not appear to have been coined until after 1600, the submitter must rely upon the legal name allowance.

* Rianorix of Forgotten Sea.  Name.
Forgotten Sea is the registered name of an SCA branch.

* Thaddeus Ellenbach.  Name (see RETURNS for device).
Submitted as Thadeus Ellenbach, the submitter requested the spelling Thaddeus Ellenbach if it could be documented. The preferred spelling is found in Historia und Christliche Legenden, von der heiligen zwölff Apostel unsers Herrn Jesu Christi, Item von S. Pauli, auch beider heiligen Euangelisten S. Luce und S. Marci, beruff, lehre, leben, wunderwercken, letzten marter und todt, ob standhaffter bekandtnuß des Namens Christi, published in 1589 (https://books.google.com/books?id=20pWAAAAcAAJ&pg=PT529). Therefore, we have changed the given name to this form.

* Theodoric Rufus the Goth.  Reblazon of device. Sable, a sea-lion naiant and in base three pheons two and one argent.
Blazoned when registered in June 1995 as Sable, in pale a sea-lion naiant and three pheons two and one argent, the sea-lion is the sole primary charge.

* Umm Razin Rusa al-Badawiyya.  Name and device. Per fess azure and vert, a chevron couched from sinister and in canton a decrescent argent.

* Zachariah MacDonald.  Name change from Zachariah Lochrie.
The submitter’s previous name, Zachariah Lochrie, is retained as an alternate name.

CALONTIR returns
* Ann O’Carolan.  Badge. (Fieldless) A sword argent and overall a wolf’s head erased contourny azure.
This badge is returned for redraw. Please instruct the submitter on the proper way to draw erasing: either three or four prominent, pointed jags on the erasing, as described on the Cover Letter to the November 2001 LoAR:
Therefore, for purposes of recreating period armorial style for erasing, the erasing should (1) have between three and eight jags; (2) have jags that are approximately one-sixth to one-third the total height of the charge being erased; and (3) have jags that are not straight but rather are wavy or curved.
Alternatively, the submitter could decide to resubmit the overall charge as wolf’s head couped.* Cuthbert Longschankes.  Badge. (Fieldless) A Celtic cross Or irradiated azure.
This badge is returned for not being reliably blazonable, which is a violation of SENA A1C which requires an emblazon to be describable in heraldic terms. Blazoned as a Celtic cross irradiated, irradiation would surround the entire charge and would leave no gaps between the azure extensions. It cannot be blazoned as a mullet of eight points azure with a Celtic cross Or surmounting it as there is no way to blazon the exact overlap of the center of the mullet with the junction point of the cross.* Miranda de Logan.  Device. Azure, a snake headed at each end annodated palewise and on a chief Or, three mullets of eight points azure.
Blazoned on the LoI as palewise counterembowed-embowed, the snake’s posture can only be described as what Parker’s Glossary, p.11, defines as annodated: “bowed embowed, or bent in the form of the letter S.” No documentation was provided by the submitter or in commentary for the period use of this posture in snakes. Thus this device is returned for running afoul of SENA A2C1 which states “Elements must be drawn in their period forms and in a period armorial style.” Additionally, this posture renders the snake difficult to identify and many commenters confused it with a letter S.* Thaddeus Ellenbach.  Device. Lozengy azure and argent, a lion contourny Or maintaining a sword proper, a bordure sable.
This device must be returned for insufficient contrast between the held charge and the field.
Per SENA A3B4a:
Placement of Charges: Charges must have good contrast with the background on which they are placed. Primary, secondary, and overall charge groups are considered to be placed on the field and must have good contrast with it.

While technically this armory has a neutral field, the mostly argent sword lying nearly entirely on argent lozenges of the field has insufficient contrast.

From Their Royal Highnesses — Change in Royal Scribe’s Position

Greetings Dear Kingdom,

It is with a heavy heart I must say that Mistress Finn ( ed. note: Fionnuala inghean Fhearghuis ) due to personal issues can not continue as Royal Scribe. We wish Hans a speedy recovery and lasting good health!

Violet Sinclair has graciously accepted the position and will do a most wonderful job stepping in at this late date. Please give her all the support and assistance you can and direct any questions and issues to her in regard to all things scribal for our Reign.

Again we Thank Finn for fighting the good fight and keeping things on track but her care and attention are needed on her home front.

Thank you,
HRH,
Xerxis and BelAnna

May 2015 LOAR Results

From Gunnar Thorisson, Vert Hawk Herald:


CALONTIR acceptances

  •  Adalyde bint Yunus al-Zarqa’. Name. This name combines a Catalan given name and Arabic byname. This is an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C of SENA.
  •  Aleksandr Yaroslavovich Vyetcikov. Augmentation of arms. Sable, a pall of chain Or between three bezants, and for augmentation on the bezant in chief a pellet charged with a cross of Calatrava Or.
  • Ástríðr Bersadóttir. Name and device. Per pale vert and azure, two domestic cats sejant addorsed, tails entwined Or. Submitted as Ástriðr Bersadóttir, accents must be used consistently throughout the entire name. Therefore, we have changed the name to Ástríðr Bersadóttir to add the second accent to the given name.
    This device is not in conflict with the device of Ailitha ingen Chathail: Per bend sinister wavy azure and vert, a cat sejant and a cat sejant contourny Or. There is a DC for changing the field, and a DC for the position of the cats, Ailitha’s cats being in bend. Although the position of the cats has changed with the field division, it is not a forced change (i.e. the cats could have been in fess on Ailitha’s device or in bend in the current submission).
  • Damhán Ó Conghalaigh. Name and device. Argent, on a saltire sable five escallops palewise argent.
    Submitted as Damhan Ó Conghalaigh, accents must be used consistently throughout the entire name. Therefore, we have changed the name to Damhán Ó Conghalaigh to add the accent to the given name. The submitter preferred this form to Damhan O Conghalaigh (without any accents), which is also registerable.
    Nice device!
  • Da’ud ibn Ibrahim al-Sisari. Name (see RETURNS for device).
  • Einarr Grímsson. Badge. (Fieldless) A boar rampant contourny argent.
    Nice badge!
  • Elizabeth nic Dhiarmid. Augmentation of arms. Azure, a hawk close and on a chief Or two roses gules, barbed and seeded proper, and for augmentation the hawk maintaining an escutcheon purpure charged with a cross of Calatrava within a bordure Or. Purpure, a cross of Calatrava and a bordure Or was registered by Calontir in Feb 2008 to be their standard augmentation.
  • Erich Hlodowechssun fon Hocheichhallu. Augmentation of arms. Or, an oak tree eradicated gules fructed Or within a bordure engrailed sable semy of annulets Or, and for augmentation, in base on a golpe a cross of Calatrava Or. Purpure, a cross of Calatrava and a bordure Or was registered by Calontir in Feb 2008 to be their standard augmentation.
  • Gwendolyn A’Brook. Badge. (Fieldless) A lobster Or sustaining in chief a county coronet sable.
    The submitter is a countess and thus entitled to display a county coronet.
  • Isengrim sleggja. Release of device. Or, on a chevron gules two cross-peen hammers, heads to center argent, in base a double horned anvil sable.
  • Már í Miklagarði. Name and device. Quarterly gules and argent, four ravens in annulo counterchanged.
    Submitted as Már i Miklagarði, the submitter requested authenticity for a “10th century name appropriate to a member of Varangian Guard”. Accents must be used consistently throughout the entire name. Therefore, we have changed the name to Már í Miklagarði to add the accent to the preposition í (“from/of”).
    Both the given name and byname are found in the Landnámabók, so are plausible for a settler in Iceland around the 10th century. As the Varangian Guard included men from Iceland prior to the 12th century, the name may meet the submitter’s request for authenticity, but we do not know for sure.
    There is a step from period practice for the use of charges in annulo not in their default palewise orientation.
  • Mell MacAlpin. Name and device. Or, a dragon’s head couped and on a chief gules, a lightning bolt Or.
    There is a step from period practice for the use of a lightning bolt not as part of a thunderbolt.
  • Ragnheiðr Refsdóttir. Name and device. Sable, a fox courant and on a chief Or three increscents sable.
  • Róise ní Ullacháin. Augmentation of arms. Per bend sinister azure and argent, a bell argent and a rose inverted azure barbed, seeded, slipped, and leaved vert, a bordure gules, and for augmentation, in sinister chief on an escutcheon purpure a cross of Calatrava and a bordure Or. Purpure, a cross of Calatrava and a bordure Or was registered by Calontir in Feb 2008 to be their standard augmentation.
  • Siobhan MacKee. Name change from Siobhan MacAoidh (see RETURNS for device).
    This name combines a Gaelic given name and Anglicized Irish byname. This is an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C of SENA.
    The submitter’s previous name, Siobhan MacAoidh, is released.
  • Solange de Grimfells. Name.
    Grimfells is the registered name of an SCA branch. P1B2f of SENA states:
    Name phrases may be created from the registered forms of SCA branches. Only the exact registered form of the branch name may be used, and they are registered in the lingua Anglica form, ‘of Branchname’.
    Translated forms will not be registered under this allowance, even if it matches the intended origin of the submission or of the branch.
    We note that SENA supersedes the Rules for Submission and earlier precedents that allowed the use of de with English branch names. We would change the byname to of Grimfells, but the submitter does not allow changes. However, if we can document the branch name independently as a plausible place name in English, then the submitter does not need to rely on the branch name allowance.
    Several Middle English place names can be found in Watts that support Grim- + toponym, where Grim- is usually derived from the name Grimr or Grim and potentially does not use a genitive form: Grynthorp, Grymsted(e), and Grym(e)stan(e), found s.nn. Grimesthorpe, East Grimstead and Grimstone. The term fell is a toponym meaning “A hill or mountain; also, an upland waste or pasture; a moor or down” (Middle English Dictionary). Examples of plural toponyms or toponymic bynames in the same source include de Stanes, Atte stunnes, del Quitstones, Le Stones, Upstones, Le Wasshyngstones, Smerhilles, Amtehelles, Les haythes, Hillemedwe havedes, and Merehades.
    Therefore, a place name constructed from Grim- and -fells is plausible in Middle English (although Grimesfell is a more likely construction), and we can register the byname de Grimfells without using the branch name allowance.
    This name combines a French given name and English byname. This is an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C of SENA.
  • Tamar bat Avraham. Name and device. Azure, a squirrel dormant argent maintaining a date Or.
    Please advise the submitter to draw the date larger to improve its identifiability.
  • Tola Rufusdóhtor. Name.
  • Xorazne Artsruni. Name and device. Per saltire argent and Or, a sun in splendor and an orle gules.

CALONTIR returns

  • Da’ud ibn Ibrahim al-Sisari. Device. Gyronny vert and azure, a senmurv contourny Or.
    This device is returned for using a field gyronny of two colors. SENA A3B3d states “Elements not already mentioned must have good contrast between their parts. These include fields or charges evenly divided into four parts other than quarterly or per saltire, fields or charges evenly divided into more than four parts of two different tinctures, and fields or charges unevenly divided into multiple parts of two different tinctures; all of these must have good contrast between adjacent parts of the field.” Thus gyronny of two colors, or two metals, is not allowed.
  • Siobhan MacKee. Device change. Vert, in pall three rabbits courant contourny in annulo conjoined by the ears, and a bordure engrailed argent.
    This device is returned for conflict with the device of Eoin Cerd: Vert, in pall three rabbits courant conjoined by the ears argent. There is only one DC for adding a bordure.
    However, it is clear of the badge for Karl Braden von Sobernheim, Vert, three hares courant in annulo and a bordure argent, with a DC for adding the bordure and another for the orientation of the hare: Karl’s hares have the feet inward while Siobhan’s rabbits have the feet outward.
