Gerrard Carpentarius, Court Barony, 2013

In the land of Ealdormere, in the far reaches of the March of St. Martin, there lived a toymaker.   Some called him wicked, evil, and demented, and he said naught to dispel these rumours,  but every act he did belied his noble heart. He was of boundless support to the people of the March, his toys brought delight to young and old and his brush illuminated the deeds of the people, and he wielded a rapier with the joy and strength of a hammer. With largesse freely given, it was always Christmas in Ealdormere.   Seeing this, Trumbrand and Kaylah, Wandering King and Cheeful Queen, did decide to dispel the rumours once and for all and to recognize the nobility of heart of Gerrard Carpentarius.  On the eighteenth day of the month of May, in the forty-eighth year of the Society at their Crown Tourney, they did bestow upon him a coronet of silver adorned with six pearls and the rank of Baron of their Court. Let no one gainsay the nobility of this man, as hands and seal hereby attest.
