Order of the Golden Staple
The Staple is for Service to the Barony. The token is a medallion with “Per pale vert and gules, a staple Or” upon it, but has more recently been created in the form of a large brass staple
Order of the Rowan Berries
The Berries is for endeavours in the various Arts and Sciences. The token is a pouch bearing “Two rowan leaves conjoined vert, pendant therefrom three berries gules“.
Those combatants who serve the Barony in its martial endeavours for considerable time are asked to join the Yeomanry. The badge of the Levy is an Ailette (shoulder plate – a precursor to the epaulette) bearing “Per chevron dovetailed argent and vert”, or more recently a belt token with the same
The Frantic Falcon is for Event Stewarding “above and beyond the call of sanity”. As the barony is host to the Rowany Festival, the Kingdon’s largest event, the necessity for this award cannot be overstated.
Often the Barony receives assistance from a gentle who lives outside the boundaries of the Barony – the Silver Cinquefoil is a mark of thanks and the esteem in which they are held by the Barony. The token is a silver cinquefoil (a five-lobed flower), either set as a pin, or as a pendant.
Order of the Dovetail
Awarded for consistent courtesy towards others, this award is given solely at the Baroness’s pleasure. There is no specific token for this award – the token is chosen by the Baroness.
The Order of the Rowan Haft
Awarded to those who have given consistently to The Barony over a long period of time. The token of the Rowan Haft is a shaft of wood.
Along with the Baronial Champion, the four Baronial Guards serve the Baron and Baroness in matters both martial and pacific. The term of service is a year. Two guards change-over at Yule Feast, and the other two are changed at Rowany Festival. You will know a Baronial guard by their belt – dovetail divided green and white lengthways with the symbol of the Rowany Berries on the tip.
