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

ATENVELDT REGISTRATIONS by the College of Arms, May 2005:

Anna de Wombwell. Device. Per fess argent and azure, a covered well argent with wooden supports proper roofed vert.

This device does not conflict with Moira Hawthorn, Per bend sinister purpure and vert, a well argent masoned sable. There is a CD for changing the field and another for changing the tincture of the well's supports and roof, which together constitute half the charge.

Beth McDonald. Reblazon of device. Purpure, an elephant argent maintaining atop its back a pyramid Or, a bordure embattled argent.

We have reblazoned this device, originally blazoned Purpure, an elephant argent with a pyramid atop its back Or, a bordure embattled argent, to more clearly indicate the relative sizes of the elephant and the pyramid.

Jane Kynesman of Northamptonshire. Device. Per pale azure and gules, three saltorels argent.

Mary Kate O'Malley. Device. Per saltire vert and sable, on a lozenge argent a wolf's head cabossed sable.

Simon Kerbouchard. Device. Per chevron azure and Or, two decrescents and a dragon contourny counterchanged.

Wesley the Silent. Name and device. Per pale azure and sable, the capital letter Q and in base a cartouche fesswise Or.

Although 1565 is the earliest date we have for the adjective silent, the descriptive is found applied to people in the late 16th C. Nor can its meaning be considered particularly abstract or learned; the corresponding noun silence is found extensively in Middle English and Elizabethan English with the meaning muteness, reticence, taciturnity. Therefore, although it is unlikely that silent would have been used as a byname, it is registerable.



ATENVELDT RETURNS by the College of Arms, May 2005:

William of Tir Ysgithr. Holding name and device. Or, a vol sable and a bordure gules.

This device conflicts with William Guiscard, Or, a pair of bat's wings, conjoined and displayed, sable within a bordure countercompony vert and argent. Research into period usage finds bird's wings, but not bat's wings, as a stand-alone charge. Bat's wings are found only attached to bats or to various monsters such as dragons. Moreover, A European Armorial, by Rosemary Pinches and Anthony Wood (a drawing of a 15th C work), shows examples of dragon crests with both bird's wings and bat's wings, suggesting that the choice between the two may have been a matter of artistic license. Under the circumstances, we cannot see granting a CD between bird's wings and bat's wings, even as a stand-alone charge.

This item was originally submitted under the name Wilhelm Ludwig von Rabeslautern. The name was returned on the August 2004 LoAR and the device pended under the holding name.
