Kingdom of Atenveldt
ATENVELDT COLLEGE OF HERALDS
Letter of Intent
30 June 2017, A.S. LII
Unto Emma Laurel; Alys Pelican; Cormac Wreath; and the commenting Members of the College of Arms,
Greetings from Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy, Brickbat Herald and Parhelium Herald for the Kingdom of Atenveldt!
The Atenveldt College of Heralds requests the consideration and registration of the following names and armory with the College of Arms.
Unless specifically stated, the client will accept any spelling and grammar corrections; all assistance is appreciated.
1. Atenveldt, Kingdom of: NEW TRANSFER OF BADGE
Gyronny azure and gules, a dexter hand couped apaumy Or.
Áilgheanán and Amber (Andrew and Amber Coleman), as Crown of Atenveldt, transfer this badge, once registered to Mary Margaret of Derby in October 1976 and transferred by her to the Kingdom of Atenveldt in July 1981, to the Barony of Sundragon in the Kingdom of Atenveldt. Necessary signed paperwork is forwarded to Laurel.
The name was registered March 2017.
The previous submission, Or, a dunghill cock rising contourny vert maintaining a spear bendwise sinister argent hafted sable, a bordure raguly sable., was returned for contrast issues. “According to the precedent set in August 2015 which allows maintained charges to count towards difference, they need to be identifiable and are no longer exempt from the usual requirements for good contrast. As the identifying portion of the spear is argent on an Or field, there is not sufficient contrast for the identifiability to be maintained.” Making the blade gules solves the problem.
3. Mary Margaret of Derby: NEW TRANSFER OF DEVICE
Azure, a domestic cat passant to sinister Or.
Dawn Johnson, daughter and estate executor of Mary Margaret of Derby (Mary Johnson) transfers to the Barony of Sundragon in the Kingdom of Atenveldt Mary Margaret's device. Necessary signed paperwork is forwarded to Laurel.
4. Odette Steingrim: NAME RESUBMISSION from Laurel, November 2014
The original submission, as seen above, was returned for the following reasons: “This name was pended on the June 2014 Letter of Acceptances and Returns in order to allow the submitter to provide the correct attestation of legal relationship with Eirik Ising Steingrim. Written proof of the relationship was not provided, so we are unable to grandfather the byname Steingrim to the submitter. This name combines a French given name and Norwegian byname. This is not an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C of SENA. Therefore, we are unable to register this name and must return it.”
Eirik has supplied a Letter of Permission for Odette to use part of his SCA registered name Steingrim; he is her legal step-father. Odette is demonstrated as a French given name found in a tax archive of 14-17th century French record, "Late Period French Feminine Names," Aryenhwy merch Catmael (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/french/latefrench.html).
5. Otto Blauschild: NEW TRANSFER OF DEVICE
