Greetings to All, The Armorial and Saker website will be updated tonight to reflect this items below. In Service, Gunnar Thorisson Vert Hawk Herald CALONTIR acceptances * Anna Plantyn. Name. Both elements can be found in Norwich, England, in 1585 in the FamilySearch Historical Records, making this an excellent late 16th century name! * Ardovino Dragonetti. Blanket permission to conflict with name and device. Paly purpure and argent, a chevron counterchanged. Ardovino grants permission to conflict for any name that is not identical to his registered name. He also grants permission to conflict for any armory that is not identical to his registered device. * Gawain of Miskbridge. Reblazon of device. Sable mullety argent, a ship Or sail furled, fore and sterncastles enflamed proper, issuant from base a demi-sun Or. Registered in October of 1982 (via the Middle) as Sable, mullety argent, a lymphad Or, fore and aft castles enflamed proper, issuant from base a demi-sun Or, the submitter requested the reblazon of the primary charge to a generic ship, for which the position of the sails must be specified. * Georgette Durning. Name. Both elements are found in England in 1632 in the FamilySearch Historical Records. * Gwendolyn verch Morgaine. Badge. (Fieldless) A brunette mermaid proper maintaining a sword and buckler Or. This badge does not conflict with the badge of Colin of Duntamknackan: (Tinctureless) A merman, bow in dexter and arrow in sinister hand, tail raised to sinister. There is a DC for the tinctureless/fieldless allowance and, based on the August 2015 Cover Letter, another one for changing the types of the held charges. * Maximilian Praetorius. Name and device. Quarterly Or and gules, a double-headed eagle counterchanged. Maximilian is a late 16th century German name found in the FamilySearch Historical Records, making this an entirely German name. Nice device! * Miakushka Loshkina. Name (see RETURNS for device). * Mór Bhallach inghean Domhnaill. Badge. Per chevron gules and argent, two decrescents argent and an owl affronty purpure. * Robert of Ruda. Reblazon of device. Ermine, two spears in saltire sable between in pale a stag's head erased vert and a boar's head erased gules. Registered in May 1988 as Ermine, two spears crossed in saltire sable, between in pale an elk's head erased vert and a boar's head erased gules, in period blazon, the term elk would have denoted the beast known in North America as the moose, which is not the case here. We have corrected the blazon. * Seumas Sionnach Geal. Reblazon of badge. (Fieldless) On an escallop inverted argent a sea-elk vert. Registered in November 1995 as (Fieldless) On an escallop inverted argent a sea-moose vert, the moose was known as an elk in period Europe, so we are correcting the usage. * Signý Ulfsdóttir. Name change from Angeline Marie le Chat du Coeur (see RETURNS for device). This name does not conflict with the registered Sigrid Ulfsdottir due to substantial change in the second syllable of the given name (-rid versus -ny). The submitter's previous name, Angeline Marie le Chat du Coeur, is released. * Signý Ulfsdóttir. Badge. (Fieldless) In pale a cow courant conjoined to a crescent argent. * Signý Ulfsdóttir. Badge. (Fieldless) On a wolf courant Or, a knot of two hearts voided and braced to form a single cord sable. The interlaced hearts are a period charge occurring in the arms of Schulthaf in 1548. Please advise the submitter to draw the tertiary charge larger in order to improve its identifiability. * Tatiana Nikonovna Besprozvannyja. Device change. Gules, a natural demi-tiger rampant regardant erased argent striped sable and an orle argent. The submitter's old device, Argent semy of patriarchal crosses sable, on a pile inverted wavy gules a natural tiger passant reguardant argent striped sable, a bordure counterchanged gules and argent semy of patriarchal crosses sable, is retained as a badge. There is a step from period practice for the use of a (demi)natural tiger. CALONTIR returns * Miakushka Loshkina. Device. Argent, a polypus facing to dexter purpure within a bordure gules. This device is returned for redraw for having some the polypus' tentacles extending above its head. Please see the May 2015 Cover Letter for information about a correct depiction. * Signý Ulfsdóttir. Device change. Paly argent and gules, on a fess nowy sable a wolf's head erased argent. This device is returned for redraw. Please instruct the submitter on the proper way to draw erasing: either three or four prominent, pointed jags on the erasing, as described on the Cover Letter to the November 2001 LoAR: Therefore, for purposes of recreating period armorial style for erasing, the erasing should (1) have between three and eight jags; (2) have jags that are approximately one-sixth to one-third the total height of the charge being erased; and (3) have jags that are not straight but rather are wavy or curved. Alternatively, the submitter could decide to resubmit the tertiary charge as a wolf's head couped. * William of Questionable Intentions. Badge. Azure, two chevronels inverted braced and in base a fleam argent. This badge is returned for redraw. The chevronels should be drawn so as to issue from the sides of the field, not from the chief. Per precedent: "The chevron [inverted] should not intersect the corners of the chief" (Baldwin of Erebor, LoAR 7 July 1986, p. 6). The device needs to be redrawn with the ordinary issuing from the sides of the shield. [Anastasia Gutane, LoAR of October 1999] If the chevronels intersecting the corners of the chief is grounds for return, then the chevronels issuant from chief itself, and not from the sides of the shield, is likewise grounds for return. -- Manage your subscription at http://listserv.unl.edu. listserv.unl.edu lists do not accept incoming email from Yahoo.com, AOL.com or Dropbox.com due to their DMARC policies.
