Re: Ceremonies of property transfer

Poster: William Morris <william.morris@sc.edu>


In reference to the concept of the clump of dirt.  Just under a year ago 
I became seneschal for the canton of Cyddlain Downs.  Going through some 
of the old paperwork from years ago, I found reference to the founding of 
our barony.  In that founding ceremony, a pail of "sacred dirt" from 
another part of the kingdom was brought down and placed in the barony to 
symbolize the "unity" of the kingdom and to welcome the new barony.

I will attempt to find that paperwork and individuals who were around at 
the founding and get more information.  It seems this ceremony has been 
performed already in kingdom.
