Introduction

Lord Martyn de Halliwell first got involved in the SCA in 2006 after being approached by several SCA members while selling hats he had made at the PA Renaissance Faire. His first local event was Noisemakers II in February 2007, and his first Pennsic was Pennsic War XXXVI (2007). He currently resides in the Barony of Bhakail, where he is an active member, volunteers his time at events, runs a weekly A&S workshop, cooks, brews, and works on his skills as an artisan and musician.

Persona

  • Lord Martyn de Halliwell 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 traveling between the two.

  • However, sometimes- Lord Thomas Martyn came to London from Halliwell and can be found perusing the libraries, churches and associating with the musicians of the Court of the Tudor monarchs.
