Manor Overview


Winterbourne Gunnet, is an older manor, and is considered to be the first of the Winterbourne manors, or so the vassal knights of Winterbourne Gunnet would maintain. A fortified manor house allows for fine protection, as well as the small village attached does boast of a wall. There is some talk of getting a motte around the settlement, though any real progress has yet to be seen. It cozies right up to the Bourne river, which provides fishing, as well as what agricultural success the manor sees.


Winterbourne Gunnet, maintaines that is is the eldest and first settlement of the Winterbourne family (Dauntsey and Stoke considered to be cousin branches, though there is nothing to substantiate this). A staunch pagan family, they have served the Pendragon faithfully, in the various attacks and sieges on Carlion (In which members have died gloriously in battle). They took part in the invasion of Frankland and there earned a mutual hatred of the Frankish knights, as well as have been known to partake in Naval Raids.

The are most famously known for their part in the battle of Lindsey, in which the former head of house, Rhys ap Caradoc helped capture Octa to much glory, In recent history, the House has shown suspicions to the Wylyes, due to Rhys' disappearance and supposed murder on route to cement a betrothal between his eldest, Corraidhin, and a member of the British Christian house. Winterbourne Gunnet's people are often considered rough and rustic-preferring to hunt and hawk than participate in the intrigues of court.


Nortwest of Sarum, Winterbourne Gunnet sits on the Bourne river, just south of their closest neighbors at Idminston.
