Hazel Leaf Pursuivant
Hazel Leaf Pursuivant is the title given to baronial heralds of Terra Pomaria. The office is generally held for two years.
The Herald of Terra Pomaria is one of the oldest offices in barony filled at the first official branch meeting on January 5th AS XVIII/1983. Upon elevation to baronial status in May of 1992, Terra Pomaria, under the guidance of then branch herald Friedhelm der Luchs, decided to make the position an official titled office. In May of 1994 the title Hazel Leaf Pursuivant was registered with the SCA College of Heralds as the official title. Although Friedhelm orchestrated the registration he was never officially Hazel Leaf Pursuivant in name as the official registration took place after he had stepped down. Cesare the Merchant filled the vacant office in early 1996 while also serving as Baron of Terra Pomaria as the result of an unexpected vacancy and the requirement at that time that the branch herald's office be filled.
The Order of the Hazelnut was created in Terra Pomaria for those who exhibit outstanding heraldic service in correlation to the title of Hazel Leaf Pursuivant. Although admittance to the order is not exclusive to former Hazel Leaf Pursuivants and/or Terra Pomaria Heralds, all current inductees have served in the branch herald's office.
Among the numerous pieces of ancient regalia that accompany this office include several baldrics, two tabbards, one bearing the device of the barony the other the badge of SCA Heraldry, a ceremonial cup and a SCA Heraldry Badge-designed floppy hat. As well, the leather-bound ceremonial of the branch may also be considered regalia linked exclusively to this position.
