Escutcheon Notes:

Client will NOT accept Major changes. Client cares most about spelling (Wants the AE ligature) and the desired gender of the name is female.

The consulting herald made a note on the form saying she would verify the grammar when she got home. I have e-mailed her to ask if she did so and will forward the commentary to Dragon and Rouge Scarpe.

There was an attempt on the form to alter part of what was typed as "vole" with a mark that looks like an "a". A search turned up a charge, a "vol," leading me to assume this was meant to be crossed out, so that is what I have recorded here.

Correction (2010-Nov-02 23:11:55): Proposed Blazon should read: Per bend sinister azure and vert, a vol and a water bouget within a bordure embattled Or
