Awards & Offices




Lord Martyn de Halliwell first got involved in the SCA in late 2006 after being approached by several SCA members while selling hats he made at a local Renaissance Faire. He currently resides in the Canton of Black Icorndall in the Barony of Bhakail.

Originally intending to study period music & heavy fighting, Martyn found himself drawn to working as event staff and assisting others in their endeavors. Presently, he tries to spend time evenly between volunteering, archery, & music. His plans for the future include: more achery, more music, more volunteering and heavy fighting.


  • Lord Martyn de Haliwell was born into a minor Breton noble family in Richmond, North Yorkshire, England in the 14th century. During his youth he traveled extensively with both of his grandfathers (one a well-known diplomat, the other a successful military captain), having long stays in London, Paris, Rome, Constantinople and Cologne. After the kidnapping of his parents, he immediately returned home from his studies abroad. He now resides in and administers his parents estates in both Richmond and Brittany, frequently travelling between the two. He holds some small estates in Avignon, but has yet to travel to them, relying on the chatelaines there to manage them. Finally having his institutional education years behind him, and his parents estates under proper management, he plans to become a more active member of the court.

  • However sometimes- Martyn Halliwell is currently of unknown origins and can be found perusing the libraries, churches and associating with the musicians of the Court of King Henry VIII.
