        They've been discussing this site on the heraldic list(s) this week. The
        prevailing opinion seems to be that they normalized common given names
        (John, Thomas, etc) but uncommon given names were put in 'as is' (Sibryght,
        Lambekyn, etc) and that bynames (last names) were generally left alone.

        There's also several posts of reasons why, but that's the gist of what went
        across.

          Well, put in "as is" or else only partially Anglicized/normalized
          (e.g., Latin case endings, if any, removed) -- it is hard to say
          which without seeing the originals.
