Mistress Eleanor Deyeson

Eleanor as commonly pronounced, Deyeson is "Day-son."my device.jpg


  • Born in 1319 in Bridport, Dorset, on the southern coast of England. My device reflects both my seaside heritage, and also christian imagery (very common in our historical period).
  • Motto - "I never met an artefact I didn't like." Which means I can be found wearing just about anything, as I'm most interested in the Material Culture of the SCA period, specifically Accessories. In order to learn about the accessories, I also study Costuming and Calligraphy & Illumination.

History in the SCA:

  • Timeline:
    • First saw a demo in the Haymarket, May of 1986. Joined campus group in Aug 1986
    • Found a husband (Gerald Goodwine) at an SCA event, and then spent a number of years less active while working on our joint, ground up projects. (Katherine Davenport, Bechte von Holtzburg, Deinol of Llananno, Sigurd Goodwineson, and Lorraine de Lanci.) Got back into active participation once they could all feed themselves.
