I have played in the SCA since I was young, about 12. Introduced to the society though my childhood friend and her family. I hail from the fair Barony de L'Ile du Dragon Dormant from which I followed my parents to the hot and humid Shire of Sangre Del Sol in the Southern kingdom of Trimaris and from there to the Kingdom of Caid for a very short spell. Eventually I was brought back to the East Kingdom in the North and have settled in the Shire of Quintavia.

Perronnelle de Croy was born on St. Betto's feast day in 1042 in the small town of Croixmare, near Rouen. Her father, having journeyed to fight the Byzantines in his youth, now a lord in his own right. Shrewd management made him prosperous and in 1058 Perronnelle was sent to be a companion to Margaret, wife of Ranulf de Briquessart, Vicount du Bessin. In time she came to be married to a knight attached to Bishop Odo of Bayeux. In 1066 the call came from Odo to gather and follow William into the land across the sea. Her husband, a loyal knignt, left his lady and children and went to war.
He has with success and recognition by Bishop of Bayeux himself and granted lands in no less than eight different counties. Two of such holdings:
- Fringford - which lies between Oxford and Buckingham. Roughly ten and a half 'hides' here, which is about 1,260 acres.
- -It is recorded that there are eighteen villagers at Fringford, twelve smallholders, and two mills.
- Wiltshire - part of a larger area known as 'Swinedune', or 'Pig Hill'. The holding here is assessed at five 'hides', which is about 600 acres.
- -There are five villagers, two smallholders with two ploughs, a mill, a meadow and some pasture land.
With her children, Perronnelle, keeps her lords hall and lands in Normandy while he fights alongside Bishop Odo. Somewhat skilled with bow and sword she mostly devotes herself to the arts. Her interests are wide and varied. She has often been found in the kitchen cooking and cleaning while singing strange and inappropriate songs. She can also be found sitting and enjoying such arts as sewing, weaving, or playing her harp.
This gentle has also been known as one of the Bards of Loo.
