According to the Blazon Pattern Search Form:
There have been 13 registrations for Armory with either "an orle of chain" or "an annulet of chain" since the Regalia was registered by Laurel in 1998. Those who have are noted in the LoAR as being a KSCA . There were 16 registrations before then with no such notations in the LoAR.
There have been no registration for armory with a "Chapeau", "Pelican vulning itself" or "A pelican in its piety" at all (unless it's in the most recent LoAR which brought up the question in the first place). In fact, the only 2 Pelicans on registered Armory are from the 1970s.

I was talking specifically about the bestowed peerages - I've seen lots of
crowns, but never a pelican or knight's chain.
As a Laurel, I'd never add a laurel wreath to my own device, even if I were
allowed to, because it's association with group status is just too strong
for me personally to get past.
