Judith de Bruges
- This gentle's name has been entered on the Scroll of Honor - An Tir Remembers.
Joining the SCA around December AS XXIV/1989, she was one of two first simultaneous inductees into the Order of the White Scroll of Terra Pomaria, the Barony’s highest order, along with her lord husband Lionel the Woodworker of Antwerp. She was also the original holder of the Office of the Grete Boke and once held the office of Gold Key in the same place. Sadly, she is the first member of the Order of the White Scroll to pass away. Judith was an early contributor to the transformation of Terra Pomaria from shire to barony, having been a signer of the petition to attain baronial status presented to Their Majesties Gunnarr and Gabriell at May Crown Tournament XXVII/1992, May 16th. Other Awards and honors bestowed upon Judith include membership in the Order of the Jambe de Lion, receipt of a Silver Apple for service in Terra Pomaria and she was given founding Baron Cesare the Merchant’s personal favor. She was well-known for having made the original blue cushions for the Baron and Baroness’s chairs circa AS XXVII / 1992; the cushions are still in use as of AS XLI / 2006 having served three landed Barons and Baronesses. Judith’s last two SCA appearances were at the 20/10 Anniversary Revel of Terra Pomaria and Ducal War both held in AS XXXVII / 2002. Mundanely, she was the mother of fellow SCAdians Finna Grimsdottir (aka Fionnghuala inghean Aoidh) and Jeane Chantal la Bouviere who survived her along with her lord husband.
