Atenveldt Submissions (excerpted from the S.C.A. College of Arms' Letters of Acceptance and Return)

The following submissions were registered by the S.C.A. College of Arms, October 2011:

Clarice Alienor Neep. Name change from Clarice Alienor Aldinoch.

The information provided on the forms and the Letter of Intent contradicted one another. The forms say that the submitter wanted authenticity for 12th-13th century England. That request was not summarized on the Letter of Intent, which instead said she preferred the spelling Neep to the authenticity request. Communication with the submitter indicated that the Letter of Intent was correct.

We note that the submitted name is authentic for the late 16th century but not for an earlier time. Elmet was able to date the byname de Neap' to 1284 in (Fasti Ecclesiae Anglicanae 1066-1300: volume 4: Salisbury). This would presumably represent de Neape or de Neap; this makes the likely 13th century form as Clarice Alienor de Neape.

Her previous name, Clarice Alienor Aldinoch, is retained as an alternate name.

Curlew Drogheala. Reblazon of device. Per fess argent and vert, an Eskimo curlew close affronty, head to sinister, proper perched upon two rocks issuant from base Or.

Blazoned when registered in August 1980 as Per fess argent and vert, a doebird curlew [Phaeopus borealis] close affrontée, head to sinister, proper perched upon two rocks issuant from base Or, we are clarifying the type of bird while removing the Linnaean classification. An Eskimo curlew proper is primarily brown.

Curlew Drogheala. Device change. Argent, in pale a raven perched upon and pecking a single-horned anvil reversed sable, a base rayonny gules.

The posture pecking is a variant of close, and is a period posture for ravens.

His previous device, Per fess argent and vert, an Eskimo curlew close affronty, head to sinister, proper perched upon two rocks issuant from base Or, is retained as a badge.

Ellen Redbootes. Name.

Appearing on the Letter of Intent as Ellen Redboots, the forms have Ellen Redbootes. Luckily for the submitter, commenters had provided information that the spelling bootes was in use before 1600. Therefore, we can restore the byname to the originally submitted spelling without pending it for further commentary.

Günter Haller. Device. Sable, on a cross formy throughout gules fimbriated between four wolves passant a wolf passant, a bordure Or.

Please advise the submitter to draw the fimbriation more boldly.

Joscelin de Lyons. Blazon correction. Per pall inverted purpure, Or ermined gules, and sable, two lions addorsed reguardant Or and purpure and a joscelyn wreathed Or and gules, belled argent.

Blazoned when registered in July 2009 as Per pall inverted purpure, Or ermined gules, and sable, two lions addorsed Or and purpure and a joscelyn wreathed Or and gules, belled argent, the fact that the lions were reguardant was accidentally omitted from the blazon.

Otto Christoph von Frankenau. Name and device. Lozengy gules and argent, a goat clymant sable.

Submitted as Otto Christoph Von Frankenau, the submitter requested authenticity for 13th-14th century Germany, but allowed only minor changes. We do not have evidence for the form the locative would have taken in that time (the submitted spelling is documented only for around 1600), and thus cannot meet the submitter's request. We would drop that element in order to meet that request, but the submitter allows minor changes only. No evidence was presented that von was ever capitalized in period German, therefore we have made it lowercase in order to register the name.

This device in not in conflict with the badge of Manus Branduff of Ardmore, (Fieldless) A ram rampant sable maintaining in its dexter hoof a flanged mace argent handled of wood proper and in its sinister hoof a goblet Or. There is one CD for the field; as goats and rams were generally seen as separate heraldic charges in period regardless of their similarities, there is a CD for type of beast.

Sarah Axford. Name.

Nice English name from 1200 on!

Sheherezon Sequora Maximilian. Reblazon of device. Argent, a ladybug gules spotted Or headed sable.

Registered in June 1975 as Argent, a ladybug [Coccinella novemnotata] proper, we are clarifying the tincture of the ladybug.

Valdís Eiríksdóttir. Device. Argent, a horse's head couped sable and in canton a mullet of four points gules.

This device is not in conflict with the device of Eoin MacGriogair, Argent, a chess knight sable crined gules. There is a CD for the difference between the default double-headed chess knight and a horse's head, and another CD for adding the mullet.


There were no returns by the College of Arms, October 2011.
