* Around Spring of 1984 in Hemet, California a man who went by the name of Jevelyan, excitedly told his friends that he had finally found a local contact number for the Society for Creative Anachronism. He had briefly been a member at the place he lived before he came to Hemet. Because there was so many of them the Barony sent a team of people to Hemet the following week to talk to the newcomers. The teachers at that first meeting were Master [[Aldred von Lechsend aus Froschheim]], Countess [[Ascelyn Schirleah]], [[Eadwynne of Runedun]], Master [[Wilihelm Roderick FitzLovel of Kerr]] and Lord [[Duncan Brock of Greyfeather]]. Among the newcomers were Lochlan (Jevelyan), [[Damales Redbeard]], [[Yvon Bater of Darkwood]], [[Paganus Grimlove]], [[Thomas Bordeaux]], [[Allaine de Beaumont of Glastonbury]], [[Ciaran Faol Ruadh]] (who now goes by Magukhai Isige), [[Conall Eoin MacTavish]], [[Eldwin Nightowl]], [[Steffan the Scrivener]], Brian and Kim Rents,  John Lower and others lost to memory.

The name means, “Summer pastures of the foreigners,” which reflected Hemet reputation of being the winter home of many senior citizens who lived somewhere else during the rest of the year. Lady [[Illuminada Eugenia de Guadalupe y Godoy|Illuminada]] was Gallavally’s first Seneschal. By 1989 Gallavally was very active and wanted more autonomy. When they were granted full Canton status Lord Bhaltar was the Seneschal.
