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

The following submissions were registered by the SCA College of Arms, October 2020:

Carl of Wiltshire. Reblazon of device. Azure, a wooden siege tower Or, a chief embattled argent.

Blazoned when registered in March 1983 as Azure, a siege tower Or, a chief embattled argent, we are specifying its form as wooden, as opposed to stone, the latter of which is attested in period armory.

Ilaria Volpe Della Scala. Device. Argent, a fox sejant contourny gardant sable, a bordure azure semy of musical notes Or.
Artist's note: Please include the detail of the fox's tail tip for identifiability.
Nice cant!

Johan Reinhardt von Rostock. Name and device. Per chevron gules and argent, three crosses crosslet fitchy argent and a stag's head cabossed sable.
Nice 16th century German name!

Niese Angela Bloed. Name.

Prisca de la Herrera. Name and device. Purpure, a domestic cat sejant gardant between in chief two triquetras each braced with an annulet argent.
Commenters raised the issue of the byname's construction, as locatives in Spanish are usually formed as simply de X. The byname de la Herrera can be found dated to 1404 in Venta de heredad [Colección diplomática de Santa Catalina del Monte Corbán], a notary document found in the CORDE database. Therefore, this name can be registered as submitted.

Rædwulf Beoceorl. Name and device. Or, a barrel proper and on a chief azure a beehive Or between two bees Or marked sable.
This byname was originally submitted as Beóceorle. However, there was no documentation supporting either the acute accent on the o or the terminal e in period documents. While the acute accent appears in Bosworth-Toller's An Anglo-Saxon Dictionary, it is used there as a pronunciation guide and would not have been written that way in period documents. We have therefore dropped both to register this name.
Nice cant!

Vincent Blackwell and Leolin Blackwell. Joint household name Haus zum Reinhardt and badge. Sable, on a bend sinister cotised argent three wolves courant contourny palewise gules, in dexter chief an increscent argent.
Originally submitted as House Reinhardt, this household name was not properly constructed. While the name Reinhardt was originally documented as German, it could also be an English given name. Precedent says, "The question was raised whether names of the form House + [place name] followed a pattern found in English names for groups of organized people. We have found no examples of this pattern. [Sythe Blackwolfe, December 2007, R-Calontir]" The submitter provided no new documentation to prove that such a pattern existed in our period, and therefore this precedent still applies. An English household name based on the given name Reinhardt might be Reinhardts House.
In the return of Haus Grimm, it was also noted that the pattern Haus + [surname] was not found in German names. [Faelan mac Flainn, June 2016, R-Lochac]. However, AElfwynn Leoflaede dohtor found numerous examples of Haus zum [name or names] in Die Hausnamen und Hauszeichen im mittelalterlichen Freiburg by Karl Schmidt. On the basis of these examples, the form Haus zum Reinhardt would be a plausible German household name.
Finally, the submitters allowed no changes. Upon conversation with the submitters, they explicitly allowed a change to Haus zum Reinhardt for registration. We are happy to make this change and register this household name.

The following submissions were returned for furtherwork, October 2020:

Niese Angela Bloed. Device. Per bend Or and vert, a lotus blossom in profile purpure and a thornbush Or.

This device is returned administratively for the line drawing having a sable thorn bush. On resubmission, note that only sable portions of the armory may be filled in on the line drawing. Further, since the last thornbush was registered 23 years ago, documentation of the depiction of the plant should be provided, per SENA Appendix F, which states that "Charges which have not been registered in over a decade should be redocumented."
