Note to researchers:  The above info was taken from group and kingdom records and publications. Be careful about using the SCA Ordinary & Armorial (O&A) for dates because the dates listed there are for when names and/or devices were registered with the SCA College of Arms, -not- when a group was formed or advanced in status to a Barony.  Many times the dates in the O&A are months or even years after a group formation or advancement.
