I am Lady Leofwyn of Wytleseie, from the Barony of Endewearde in the East Kingdom. I am an Anglo Saxon lady living in early 11th century England during the turbulent times before the Norman invasion of 1066AD.


Lady Leofwenn of Wytleseie, was born in 1000 AD, in the Fen lands, in the town of Wytle's Ea, located in Huntingdonshire, in East Anglia, in the Kingdom of England, to Ricbert and Cynwise, and is now living in the Shire of Endewearde in the East Kingdom. Born to loyal parents, Leofwenn was named in honor of Ealdorman Leofsige. Lady Leofwenn's father and mother were ceorls, considered ordinary freemen, and owned a small family run farm. Being the only child of her parents, she inherited the property upon their deaths when she was 19 years old. Leofwenn still maintains the family farm independently from her husband's property as allowed by Anglo Saxon custom, and continues to make improvements to the property. Leofwenn married Alan of Wytleseie in 1021AD and together they have become sellers of foodstuffs and cloth. They are also the proud parents of 5 children.

Lady Leofwenn enjoys many activities when allowed the leisure to do so including the sewing of fine garments, singing, dancing, brewing meads and cordials, and cooking delicious meals to share with family and friends. An archer in the North Tower Archery Company, Lady Leo, as she is affectionately called, has also been known to throw a potentially deadly axe or knife on occasion. Lady Leo is interested in pursuing the scribal arts and presently learning to play music on a custom made harp, built by her loving husband, Alan.
