Master James Wolfden lives near Newbury, England in the mid-14th Century. As an archer, he served at both Crecy and Calais under the rule of King Edward III. This enabled him to earn enough wealth to buy a some amount of land. He currently works as a forester and organizes the bow and stable when royalty comes to hunt in the forests. As a forester, James has learned some fletching and bowyering skills in addition to huntsman lore. Should the good King call on him again, he will be glad to return to France to establish Edward’s claim to the throne. James is married to Margaret Hamilton of Stirlingshire. They have three children.

I was the Lions Gate Baronial Archer. (2007-2010) I briefly served as the Lions Gate Chronicler from March 2010 to November 2010.

At the Tir Righ Fall Coronet Tournament in AS XLIII, I was elevated to the Order of the Grey Goose Shaft by King Owain and Queen Wrenn. My white bracer has a kumihimo cord made by Master John MacAndrew. My medallion was given to me from Mikhail Kurganovic. I have sinced passed the medallion on to my Lady, Margaret Hamilton of Stirlingshire and the bracer onto His Lordship, David of Tiriane.

At the Baroness Tourney in November AS XLV, I stepped up as the fourth Baron of Lions Gate with My Lady, Margaret Hamilton of Stirlingshire, as the Baroness.

At the Tir Righ November Coronet in AS LIII, My Lady and I were elevated to the Order of the Pelican by Their Royal Majesties Christian and Helene.
