1: .Æðelðryd MacGillavrey -New Name & New Device

Azure, on a pile inverted argent between four cats pawprints two and two argent a brown mouse proper dormant.

ROUGE SCARPE: Name forwarded to Laurel. The submitter should be aware that the spelling of the given name may change. The Prosopography of Anglo-Saxon England (PASE) normalizes the name as
<Æthelthryth> and had the attested spellings of <Æþeldryð> in the 7th-8th century and <Æðeldryð>  in the late 9th century. Since the article used for documentation included the submitted spelling the name has not been changed in kingdom but if the submitter would prefer one of the forms found in PASE they should contact Rouge Scarpe within two months.


Device forwarded to Laurel with the blazon: Azure, on a pile inverted argent between four cats pawprints two and two argent a brown mouse proper dormant. There is a step from period practice (SFPP) for the use of pawprints but that is the only one. You can have one SFPP in an armory design, two or more are reason for return.

ROUGE SCARPE: Device forwarded to Laurel with the blazon: Purpure, two ravens respectant and on a point argent a triquetra vert, a bordure ermine. The original blazon mentions an annulet interlaced with the triquetra but it was not depicted in the emblazon. The emblazon is at the complexity limit of 8 (Point+bordure+ravens+triquetra+argent+ermine+purpure+vert=8) and the addition of an annulet would have caused it to be returned for violating SENA A.3.E.2. Complexity Count http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#A3E2 so the missing annulet is a good thing.
