The Right Noble Griffin FreeholdRRE had its inception in A.S.II (1967), but only consisted of John ap Griffin, Flavia Beatrice Carmigniani (then Bjo of Griffin), Kathryn du Griffin & Lorissa du Griffin, i.e., our immediate family.

Later, we opened the Freehold to members outside the immediate family; Sir Robear du Bois was the first. The badge for the Freehold was registered in about A.S. XII (3/78).

When the Freehold came back from a long slumber about 2003, more members joined the ranks. We include fighters in all combat forms, a bunch of youngsters growing up in the SCA and 7 dogs :) After Years of running the Freehold, John & Flavia turned the helm over to their daughter Lorissa, who now maintains the same standards they established in the 70s.

The formal motto of the Freehold is: Service comes from being clear about the larger goal and committing to that goal, first and foremost.

The informal one is: "Get your funny hat on, we're going to Disneyland!"

The Griffin Freehold was granted a charter as the first Right Noble household of Caid by Edward III and Mora III on November 5, 2011.
