And then you have the Order of the Ring Thegns registered to Ansteorra by 
Laurel in April of 1981 which doesn't even appear in our OP as a closed or 
existing order in any fashion.

Any heraldic history buffs on the list who remember what the Ring Thegns 
were, were intended for, who might have been members, etc.?
