If I remember right, you're in Colorado now,
yes? If my brain's working correctly, that's
Artemesia? It sounds like you've already at
least talked to a herald or heralds about it and been stymied.
The main SCA heraldry page does have a names
resource, but it's mostly focused toward given
The one article there that deals with English
place names is lengthy, but the bibliography
could give you a few good places to start
searching for documentation to help you legitimize the use of "of Darkwood".
Here they are, so you don't have to go looking:
Cameron, Kenneth. English PlaceNames. London: B. T. Batsford, 1961.
Ekwall, Eilert. The Concise Oxford Dictionary of
English PlaceNames. 4th edition. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1960.
Fellows Jensen, Gillian. Scandinavian Settlement
Names in Yorkshire. Copenhagen, 1972.
Gelling, Margaret. Signposts to the Past. London: J. M. Dent & Sons, 1978.
Mills, A. D., A Dictionary of English
Placenames. New York: Oxford University Press, 1991.
Reaney, P. H. The Origins of English PlaceNames.
London: Routledge and Kegan Paul, 1960.
I'm sure some of these would be available at a
big public library or university library in your
area....or, perhaps a herald or two in Artemesia
might have some on hand? Here's a link to
standard SCA accepted name books that could be
used as sources: http://www.sca.org/heraldry/laurel/admin.html#APPENDIX_H
