Awards & Offices



Rapier fighter, costumer, cook and confectioner with the Tadcaster Militia, Cadet to Don Ian Raven of Tadcaster.


Alesone Gray, is the daughter of a successful merchant that made a sizable donation to the crown and received a Knighthood. She grew up in Cranlegh village, Surrey, England, as the youngest sibling with five older brothers, in the later part of the 16th century. She was taught dancing at an early age, by the master hired to teach her brothers fencing. She would secretly watch the fencing lessons, longing to play with the blades. After being caught on numerous occasions with weapons in hand, her father allowed her to take lessons with her brothers. She eventually cajoled her father into allowing her to be trained to use black powder and cannons.
