The following submissions
were registered by the SCA College of Arms, August 2018:
Cathlin of Morecombe Bottome. Reblazon of device. Per

Blazoned when registered in
May 1985 as Per chevron inverted wavy sable and erminois, a swan

the swan is in a posture we now simply call rising or
Moye Varr. Name and device. Per fess
potenty argent and gules, in chief an eagle rising sable.
device is not in conflict with the badge of Thylacinus Aquila of
Dair Eidand, (Fieldless) An eagle rising sable bellied, headed,
and detailed argent fimbriated of flames proper. On reviewing
the registered badge, the eagle is at least 50% argent, if not more.
There is therefore a DC for the field, and a second for change in
tincture of the primary charge.
Moye Varr. Badge. Per
bend sinister Or and sable, a double-headed eagle and a Catherine
Orrin Darius. Name.
only documentation provided for Orrin was from a
user-submitted record found through the FamilySearch Historical
Records. We remind heralds and submitters that user-submitted
genealogies are not valid documentation. The only FamilySearch
records that are usable are those found in the batches identified in
the January 2014 Cover Letter. Other records that have attached
images of primary sources may be usable on a case-by-case
Fortunately, Orrin is a gray-period English
surname, found in an acceptable batch of the FamilySearch Historical
Records. As such surnames can be used as given names, this name can
be registered as submitted.
Theodora Akropolitissa. Device.
Argent, a bull's head cabossed and in chief a double-bitted axe
palewise gules, a bordure embattled azure.
of Atenveldt. Holding name and device (see RETURNS for name).
Sable, a natural tiger rampant Or striped sable, on a chief Or a bow
There is a step from period practice for the use of a
natural tiger. Submitted under the name Kim Samguk.
The following submissions
were returned by the College of Arms for further work, August 2018:
Although Kim is well-attested as a Korean family name, we
found no evidence to support the construction of the given name
Samguk. The term Samguk in Korean means "three kingdoms"
and is a poetical term used to refer to Korea in 13th century Korean
writings. We were unable to find evidence of Koreans using such terms
as name elements. We were also unable to construct Samguk from period
Korean elements. Accordingly, this name must be returned.
submitter's device is registered under the holding name William of
Matheus Veðr Brokkr. Device. Per fess vert
and sable, in chief in fess a spear sustained by a badger rampant and
in base a sun argent.
This device is returned for violation
of SENA A3D2a, which prohibits more than two types of charge in the
same charge group. The spear is large enough to be co-primary with
the badger, which is already co-primary with the sun. With three
different types of charge in the same primary charge group (spear,
badger, and sun) this meets SENA's description of "slot machine"
heraldry, and must be returned.
