House Zacharia Household
First Age: House Zacharia Household was founded in 1986 when Timotheus Zacharia von Schloss Zwilling & Lynnette de Sandoval del Valle de los Unicornios joined with Dana O'Lawler & Sebastian de Grey to form Owlwycke Priory. Timotheus & Lynnette were House Zacharia, as a member household of Owlwyche Priory. During this age House Zacharia expanded to include Stephen the Sinister (Feb 1987), Cynthia Lloyd of Hightower (June 1988), and Timotheus' and Lynnette's newly adopted SCA son, Wulfric Grimbeald (Nov 1989). House Zacharia went dormant in 1994.
Second Age: In 1995 or 1996 House Zacharia Household was reactivated when Sarah Jeanne Winterton Croft and Duncan Andrew Songhawke Tengri-in Jida joined the household. The household went dormant in 2003.
Third Age: In 2007 House Zacharia Household was again reactivated when Timotheus and Lynnette were joined by their newly adopted SCA daughters and sons-in-laws: Sárnat ingen meic Caille and her husband Marcus Mulcahy, Mouren Muir, Ysoude de Rochester, Madelena Hidalgo de Valencia, and William MacLyr.
One important tenet of the household has always been that we are individuals perusing our own interests; we come together in House Zacharia Household, but remain our own persons.
Our original purpose was to provide service to Altavia and Caid. At any time 2 or 3 of us held offices at the Baronial or Kingdom level. Our definition of service included support of the household members who were officially serving at the event (as autocrats or officers). The person taking care of household pavilion setup/take down, lunch set up, shoving lunch in your face, bringing you water, reminding you to visit the loo, etc. is just as much in service to Altavia and Caid as the person officially serving.
Our current purpose has changed slightly to recognize that while many of us are VERY service oriented, we are also VERY arts oriented.
We strive for "service through the arts", realizing that holding offices and autocrating events are also art forms!
Although House Zacharia Household had talked about a badge in the past, we'd never registered or used anything other than the Owlwycke Priory badge.
In 2007 we finally have a badge! Designed by Mouren Muir, it's a sunburst of hands (helping hands, creative hands, handy hands!).
