Re: Titles & Chuckles
Poster: "Joyce A. Baldwin" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Actually, if I were male, yes this would imply ownership of land but for a
female, no. I am calling myself Lady Thrushleigh by virtue of my marriage
to the (totally fictitious) Sir Giles Thrushleigh.**
(He was knighted by out good Queen Elizabeth for his services to the Realm
of England and his title did not come with any grant of land whatsoever.
His manors were purchased by his father from the profits of their
mercantile ventures --he tends to keep quiet about this-- while my dower
property of Rowansgarth was granted to me by my parents on the occaision of
our marriage. )
Jocetta, Lady Thrushleigh (at least until some less stealthy heralds start
jumping up and down and pouting at me.)
**My persona is married; I am single. Yes this is confusing. You will not
see Sir Giles at events as he travels abroad a great deal in his service to
the Crown of England.
