To all those who shall see or hear these present letters Nigel and Adrielle otherwise called King and Queen of Ealdormere greeting and al humble recommendation. Equity requires and reason ordains that men virtuous and of noble courage be rewarded for their merits by renown and that not only their persons in this mortal life so brief and transitory but after them those who shall issue and be procreated of their bodies may be in all places of great honour perpetually shining before others by certain signs and shows of honour and gentility. And therefore We, King and Queen above said who not only by common renown but also by the report and testimony of other noble men worthy of credence am truly advertised and informed that Brennen Suibhne has long persued feats of arms with the blade and as well in this as in other his affairs has borne himself valiantly and conducted himself honourably so that he has deserved well and is well worthy that henceforth and perpetually and for ever he is given an Award of the Scarlet Banner and is counted numbered and received among the number and in the company of other ancient gentle and noble Ealdormereans. In witness whereof We, King and Queen above named have signed with Our hands and sealed with Our seal these presents. Made and given the twenty-sixth day of October, in the year of the society forty-eight in Our Shire of the March of St. Martins at Crown Tournament.

Marrin von Waldburg, Award of the Maiden’s Heart, 2013

In public consistory, at the time of the solemn and royal court held at Trinovantia Nova, the dukes and a brilliant assembly of counts and barons being in session, and a very great multitude of nobles and commoners standing before the most serene lord Nigel king of the Ealdormereans and the exhaulted queen Adrielle, for the purpose of exhibiting the fulness of justice to each person, their majesties first asked that it be defined by a decree who ought to be recognized for their service to the crown. And it was defined by all the dukes and barons who were present, that Marrin von Waldburg had long and tirelessly so served and should be so recognized.

That said Marrin therefore was presented with an Award of the Maiden’s Heart on the feast day of Witta of Büraburg at Crown Tournament. And it was decreed that she could bear the badge of that award without hindrance or let. This was done in the year of the society forty-eight.

Orla O'shannahan, Award of the Orion, 2013

1. In the first place the king Nigel and his queen Adrielle, by thee counsel of all his barons, for the preservation of peace and the observing of justice, has decreed that an inquest shall be made throughout the separate counties, and throughout the separate hundreds, through twelve of the more lawful men of the hundred, and through four of the more lawful men of each township, upon oath that they will speak the truth: whether in their hundred or in their township there be any person who, since the lord king has been king, has not been recognized for their skill in the arts and sciences.

2. And in the case of a person who has not been recognized for their skill, they will be so recognized.

3. And let it be known that the barons and lawful men having named such a person, will have that person so recognized.

4. And further let is be known that such a person is Orla O’shannahan who was shown great aptitude in the fields of jewelry making, metal smithing, dancing, fiber arts, vinting, and weaving.

5. The lord king and queen therefore wish to bestow upon Orla O’shannahan an Award of the Orion.

6. And let it be recorded that such was done on the Feast Day of St. Alfred the Great, in the Shire of Trinovantia Nova, at Crown Tournament, in the year AS48.

Zarek Guey, Award of the Scarlet Banner, 2013

(This is the wording I supplied, though not what was used.)

King Nigel MacFarlane and Queen Adrielle Kerrec, supreme pontiffs, holding the throne for the second time, proclaim:

Since We find that in the Shires of Trinovantia Nova and the March of St. Martins there is an Ealdormerean citizen who has long proven himself on the field of battle, and since We have learned that this citizen’s service by strength-of-arms has not been recognized, We adorn Zarek Guey with a Scarlet Banner. This We do at Our Crown Tournament, in Anno Societatus 48, on the first day of  Ludi Victoriae Sullanae.

Regnante inperpetuum Domino nostro Iesu Christo. Unicuique mortalium uite sue terminus omnipotentis Dei dispensatione incertus esse dinoscitur. Uenit enim Dominus ad uisitandum seruum suum in die qua non sperat et hora qua non putat.

Alterius uero, quod nuper edificatum est in monasterio eiusdem religiose Dei famule, omne tributum atque uectigal concedimus quod etiam a theloneariis nostris iuste impetitur publicis in locis que appellantur Fordwic et Seorre. Hinc igitur precipio et precor in nomine omnipotentis Dei patriciis, ducibus, comitibus, theloneariis, actionariis, publicis dignitatibus, ut hec nostra concessio in Dei donatione eternaliter sit confirmata, ita ut nec mihi nec alicui successorum meorum regum siue principum seu cuiuslibet conditionis dignitatibus nefario temeritatis ausu de supradicta donatione nostra aliquid fraudare uel minuere liceat. Si autem contigerit ut nauis ista rupta et confracta sit uel nimia uetustate consumpta siue etiam quod absit naufragio perdita, ut alia in loco illius ad utilitatem ibidem Deo seruientium famulorum Christi et famularum construatur, ad hanc uidelicet conditionem, ut quicquid in suis mercimoniis in diuersis speciebus adquirere possint, nobis fideliter inoffense offerre debeant simul cum ipsa naui ad locum qui appellatur Fordwik. Et quicumque de hac donatione nostra, quod etiam specialiter omnipotenti Deo firmiter concessum est, aliquid nefario caliditatis ausu abstrahere uel minuere temptauerit, sciat se a consortio sanctorum omnium separatum et cum diabolo et angelis eius inperpetuum esse dampnandum, quoniam sanctum locum istum dehonestare conatus est, in quo primi apostolorum principis Petri intercessio orationibus assiduis et elemosinis floret pro omni populo Christiano.

During the reign of our Lord Jesus Christ for ever . The term of his life of mortal men to each one of the dispensation of the Almighty God, is known to be uncertain . He came to pay visits his servant for the Lord in the day when he does not expect and at an hour he does not think . Eadbert Wherefore, I, the king of Kent, of the second year of our kingdom, and with the consent of the council of the archbishop of one of my Bregwini and of the princes , and for the eternal redemption of my soul , I was to give some of these very same man, he attributed the giver of the good of all , our Lord and Savior shows had decided to endow with setting up , ie, two transport ships is also our right to tax that was in place, whose name is a saw, according to the petition, the venerable abbess Sigeburge its sacred family life in the monastery of St. Peter , which is located on the island holds , as of kings and the king of Mercia Æthelbald namely Clement Offan far is the tax has been already admitted in a place whose name is Lundenwic . The other , which was recently built in the monastery of the same religious servant of God , grant that all tax and taxes also from our theloneariis justly attacked public places which are called Fordwic and Zohar . Hence therefore, I pray in the name of the Almighty God, and I order the patricians, from dukes, earls, theloneariis , actionariis , in their public dignities, that this our grant was confirmed to be eternally in the deed of gift of God , so that it not to me nor to any of my successors , or of any condition of the princes or dignitaries of the kings of that wicked act of rashness attempt to defraud or diminish any of the above , our donation allowed . If, however, this ship so be that he is to be broken, and the broken, spent, or excessive or even , God forbid, the lapse of a shipwreck are lost, so that they are serving God in the same place , in the place of that to the benefit of Thy servants and handmaids of Christ, and is construed , the condition of the course, to this end, that whatever their trade and to different species of they can acquire , we must faithfully pleasantly offer simultaneous with the ship to a place called Fordwik . And as many of our own this donation , which he also firmly agreed that they to Almighty God in a special way , something wicked act of heat may be taken away or attempt to abstract the daring , let him know that he is separate from the company of all the saints , and to be damned in perpetuity, with the devil and his angels , for he is holy is this place, he tried to dishonor by , in which the constant of the first prince of the apostles Peter and almsgiving intercession prayers for all the people flourishes, Christian. Therefore, they will lack the blessing of God is living and dying are properly subject to the curse , but the violence has amended worthy satisfaction studied corrupt . But this increase will keep whoever is blessed for ever and deserves to hear the voice of the happiest with the saints , the holy father Come mei.1
