Manor Overview

We are open for applications! Family members (extended cousins) and other residents.

Background

Background - this is a narrative of your manor's background/history. Use the timeline for a short documentation of events. This is also a great place to put a description of the coat of arms, colors, and motto using the nested headers (i.e. ++ Coat of Arms).

Location

South and west of Sarum, along the River Nadder.

Situated in a terrain that is mostly flat with greens and some grain fields along the river Nadder betwixt some minor stretches of forest are the lands in care and responsibility of the Baverstock family. The manor itself is a long house, with a hall of medium size, a long table of dark cherry wood with long benches there before an ancient hearth with the coat of arms of the family painted on the center of the mantelpiece - the golden bear of Baverstock on a field of red and black.

The stone floor is covered with a few woollen rugs. The walls are decorated with some ancient weapons of their ancestors - swords, shields - but also with the occasional boar's head and antlers of some impressive deer. A few chambers can be accessed from the hall, but the biggest adjoining room would be the kitchen, with a large kettle hanging over the fireplace, and more pots, frying pans, long spoons and forks hanging from an iron structure attached to the ceiling.

Lady Syndra
syndra Daughter of Sir Lorcan, cousin to Sir Bryce, sister to Martyn and Catriona. Briefly betrothed to Sir Malcolm de Wylye, before this match was discarded in favor of another union between the manors of Wylye and Baverstock. Then there was a planned match to Sir Joachim de Newton, which never passed the stage of first negotiations - mostly due to the differences in faith, and Newton's disapproval of Baverstock's toleration of their peasants still following the Pagan faith.
