Appointment of Bailiff, Manor of Colyesburg, 2019


To all faithful in Ealdormere to whom the present writing shall come, Colyne Stewart of Colynesburg say greeting in the Name of the Wolf. As it was the prerogative of the Crown of the North, in the personage of Siegfried II and Xristina, to bestow upon me, the said Colyne, rights to the lands of Colynesburg called in the vernacular Drews End, to hold in feu and heritage with all its just perinents, as contained by the King's Highway to the north, thence west and south along the Crossroad Creek, thence east along coast till it comes to the Royal Forrest of Beaton, thence north over the fen back to the King's Highway.  Such lands were granted to my personage, whole, free and undisturbed in perpetuity, without any kind of subjection, service claim or demand, with liberty of fishing in the loch and with liberties in the forest of Beaton. As it is now come a time for myself, the said Colyne, and his house to pay chevage to Their Excellencies Septentria and move from Their ancient Ursine lands to the eastern reaches of the Hare, know ye that I have called upon Her Excellency Anneke the Furious, to act as my steward, bailiff and reeve and watch over the entirety of the estate as described above in my absence, and I ennoble her to oversee and collect from any lands, tenements, rents, reversions and services, with their appurtenances, of the manor of Colynesburg. In witness whereof to this present writing, I, the aforesaid Colyne have put my seal. Given on the feast of Margaret Pole, in the 1st month of the reign of Roak Khan and Hyrrokin Khan Begam and 24 years since the Proscription .

Based on Quitclaim of lands and Arms by Walter Haywode To John Fromond (12 March 1402/3).

Taking a Break

I, Maister Colyne Stewart, am departing these lands on a pilgrimage, one from which I may not return. I have asked the scribes of my ethereal library to maintain these archives, for now at least.

I wish you all good journeys.
