Nice 16th century English name!

leena and Camille are grandfathered to the submitter.

Hinrich von Bremen. Name and device. Gules, a hart's head cabossed and on a chief Or three estoiles sable.
Please advise the submitter to draw longer and wavier rays and to add some internal lines to the estoiles so they are easier to identify.

Jörg von den Hügeln. Name and device. Or, two halberds in saltire gules and overall a boarhound statant sable.
The byname von den Hügeln was documented in the Letter of Intent as a constructed toponym meaning "from the hills". In commentary, Skraeling Althing documented the phrase "Von den Hügeln oder Berglein" in the 1596 book Chiromancia Sampt ihrer Theorick, Practick, und Astronomischer Concordantz by Johannes Rothmann ( She also documented the phrase "und von den Hügeln fur und fur" in the 1585 book Hierampelos by Georg Horn ( Therefore, the byname is registerable as submitted.

Kitajima Ichirou Machiyasu. Name.
Submitted as Kitajima Ishirou Matchasu, the submission used a name that we suggested in an earlier return. However, Solveig Throndardottir noted in commentary that this suggestion contained a typographical error in the yobina, which should have been spelled Ichirou. In addition, Matchasu is correctly transcribed from the Japanese as Machiyasu or Machiyas. With the submitter's permission, we have changed the name to Kitajima Ichirou Machiyasu to register this name.

Sitriuc liath mac Sinach. Name change from holding name Sitriuc of Atenveldt and device change. Per chevron Or and vert, two pommes each charged with a triskelion of armored legs and a winged sea-fox naiant Or.

The following submissions were returned by the SCA College of Arms for further work, May 2016:

Beaune de la Sorse. Badge. Per fess argent and sable, four pallets issuant from the line of division gules and a cubit arm issuant from base argent. This badge is returned for violating SENA A3D2b which states "... a single charge group may not mix ordinaries with non-ordinaries... ". Because the pallets and arm are on each side of the line of division, they can only be understood as belonging to the same primary charge group.
We note that Per fess paly argent and gules and sable would be an acceptable divided field.
