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, September 2006:

Beatrix Losier. Device. Per chevron gules and argent, in base a weeping willow tree eradicated proper, a bordure vert.

Charis Sabran. Name.

Submitted as Carras Sabran, this name consisted of two surnames and no given name. RfS III.2.a states that "A personal name must contain a given name and at least one byname." The submitter noted that if Carras was not registerable as a surname, she would accept Charis, which was documented as a late 16th C English literary name. We have changed the name to Charis Sabran in order to register it.

Gepa of Sundragon. Device. Azure, a bull statant contourny regardant within an orle argent.

Gwynneth Wenche of Wight. Device change. Per bend vert and azure, a bend bevilled argent between two maple leaves Or.

Her previous device, Per bend sinister azure and Or, a wooden tankard proper, is released.

Medb McLeod. Device. Per saltire Or and gules, in pale two lotus blossoms in profile and in fess two dragonflies counterchanged.

Sythe Blackwolfe. Name and device. Vert, on a roundel between three equal-armed Celtic crosses argent a wolf sejant ululant sable.

Ursula Woodsholme. Name and device. Argent, on a fess embattled vert between two mullets sable a greyhound courant argent. Please advise the submitter to draw the fess a bit narrower.

William Sinclair. Name.

A conflict was called against a William Sinclair who participated in Scotland's Wars of Independence. While one of the various William Sinclairs has his own article in the 1911 Encyclopedia Britannica, he does not have his own article in the current Britannica Online ( A web search found at least four separate men named William Sinclair who were involved in the Wars of Independence, which suggests that this name is far from unique. Given that the significance of the William Sinclair mentioned in the 1911 Britannica is low enough that he is not included in the current Britannica, he is not worthy of protection.

Ysabel de Rouen. Name.

Nice 15th C Parisian name!



The following submissions have been returned for further work, August 2006:



Elaria filia Robert. Badge. (Fieldless) A leaf Or.

This badge is returned for visual conflict under RfS X.5 with Leia di Capraia's badge, (Fieldless) A card pique Or.

This leaf is a nice, oval leaf, which is the default for a generic leaf. As noted elsewhere in this letter (q.v.Marthe Elsbeth of Oak Hill, R-Meridies), there is a CD between an oak leaf and a card pique; however, a generic leaf is not an oak leaf (and in fact there is CD between a generic leaf and an oak leaf). A properly drawn oak leaf would be unlikely to visually conflict with a card pique.
