Manor Overview

Pagan religion has not hindered the Woodborough any, they are equals to any of the other manors and honorably serve both Hywn and Earl Robert. Avid enthusiasts in the religious celebrations, they are known to attend and sometimes host events themselves.

Farms, fruit and livestock are the main sources of food and income for manor and the people of Woodborough and merchants take goods to Upavon and Devizes, sometimes as far as Sarum to sell them.


Woodborough is a legacy that can be traced back pretty far, but more records are kept since the era of Sir Gryg de Woodborough who was killed by raiders in 443. Sir Edar de Woodborough died in Saxons raids on Salisbury in 479. His heir and son Sir Cadoc de Woodborough passed away from an illness in 496 leaving Beca de Woodborough nee Roundway with several young children. Her first born son, Hydd, is now a knight in his own right and married, an heir produced, young Ivor de Woodborough.

Cadoc's brother, Sir Tad de Woodborough and Cadoc's second born son, Sir Joseff de Woodborough were killed in 511 by traitors in the ranks of a patrol party that both were on. The traitor was able to kill four and injure two of the squires before his own life was taken by Sir Derec de Roundway, a notable knight.

Beca has kept the family going since, running the house, raising the children, until her son was married and she has since given up the running of the manor to Hydd's wife, Lady Sara de Woodborough nee Compton.



Located along the river Avon, between the northern hills and the southern forests, Woodborough is easily accessible by land or by river. Lush flatlands prime for farming and livestock yet near the hills and the forests make the manor a desirable location. With the flatter lands, visibility is further making it more difficult for surprise raids.
