Dame Merouda Pendray

her chronicle


This is both a research project and an experiment in creating a diary in the style of a Tudor-era woman. Research notes are usually found here, and my primary journal is here.

Today shall I take me vnto the King's roads with the Lady Ysolt to travel on matters of scholorship, the Kingdom's herald having summoned all his officers unto him for a college. We go to the southern bank of the inland sea, to the place of the Dark Stones, and there shall we dispense what knowledge we have to those who shall seek it of us.

On this day did I spend some little while in conversation with those who do hold with the teaching of the german, Martin Luther, in hopes of obtaining their favor, that I might make use of what room they might let out of their rectory, but to no avail.

So also did I meet with the lady Beavin and her Lord Ivan, to sup at the sign of the Pegusus with myself and my Lord Miguel. We did beseech the Lady Isobel and her lord Andrew to join with us, but she, sore ill, remained within the house. My lady Beavin did, upon meeting her again at her manor, make a gift unto me from her wardrobe, whch I most gratefully and plesantly received, and so also did I briefly speak with the lord Stanislaus, who hath been long absent. He was with his sonne, and soon departed. And from there did I return to my own manor and work for a time in recording all the books of my library before I did retire.
