Cerridwen verch Ioreword Pronounced: Kar-id-wen varch Air-word. Officially registered as Wen verch Ioreword.



Cerridwen verch Ioreword was born in Wales in 1495 to an English merchant class mother and a disinherited minor noble German father. As she grew, Cerridwen often travelled with her father, who became a merchant, learning the trade, how to keep the household, and anything else her father could teach or find someone to teach her. She has a special affinity to the arts, especially sewing and embroidery. During these travels she met and became betrothed to a Scotsman, John Roslyn the Ox, and was married shortly thereafter.

John was appointed as an ambassador to the Electorate of Saxony court in 1515, taking his young bride with him, to her father’s homeland. Upon her return she was able to rekindle the ties with her father’s mother and brother. When her uncle passed a few short years later with no issue of his own, she inherited his estate and lands. As a citizen of Wittenberg she is required to adhere to the applicable sumptuary laws of Wittenberg and the Holy Roman Empire and subject to the restrictions and privileges afforded to her station as a minor noblewoman and estate holder.

Interests and SCA-related hobbies

Passion for costuming and embroidery, although specialties are early 16th century German clothing, 16the century German sumptuary laws, Opus Anglicanum ("English Work") embroidery, and smocking. I love talking about sumptuary laws, clothing, embroidery, smocking, weaving, bead work, or anything else fiber arts. While I love a good story, ballad, performance, and/or music, I'll leave that to those who more talented in that area. I have also picked up on wood working and carving. When not playing in the Arts and Sciences, I enjoy helping water the combatants and working in the Youth activities.
