Introduction

Lord Martyn de Halliwell first got involved in the SCA in late 2006 after being approached by several SCA members while selling hats he had made at a local Renaissance Faire. His first event was Noisemakers II in February 2007. He currently resides in the Canton of Black Icorndall in the Barony of Bhakail, where he is active as Baronial Chronicler & Canton Herald, volunteers his time at events, runs a weekly A&S workshop, cooks, brews, and works on period music. His plans include more music, more heraldry, more cooking, more brewing, and more target archery.

Persona

  • Lord Martyn de Haliwell was born into a minor Breton noble family living 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 and merchant, the other a successful military commander), having extensive stays in London, Paris, Rome, Constantinople and Cologne. After the kidnapping of his parents, he immediately returned home from his time 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.

  • However sometimes- Martyn Halliwell is currently a lord of unknown origins and can be found perusing the libraries, churches and associating with the musicians of the Court of the Tudor monarchs.
