I was born to a wood carver in 1373 in Deerhurst England. My father was Arthur Greene of Deerhurst who became a master wood carver at 15 years of age and did commission work for the wealthy to support my aunt and cousin after the fever took my grandparents and uncle. Having never married my mother was a peasant woman from my fathers manor whom I never met having died in child birth.

Having became of age and not having a trade I decided to travel and see what else the world had to offer a young man. I first went south to Italy to see what I could learn of the wine making trade where I fell in love with the vineyard owner's dauther. After receiving his blessing we were wed in the summer of 1398 and then began to travel north to my home land where we stopped to learn about trades that were specfic to the areas that we traveled though. Making my way back to England over land with a wife I also had to learn the way of the sword to protect my family. I have one son who was brought in to the world in the fall of 1399.

After returning to my homelands I took the knowledge of my travels and the knowledge of my father's craft and started making wood tools and toys to support my family. With my father getting on in age my family and I returned to the family manor to help my father run the grounds and farm where we have been since and to present.
