History

Originally a canton of the Barony of Septentria (then a territory of the Midrealm), Ben Dunfirth was officially founded in A.S. XVIII. As detailed in The History of Ben Dunfirth, a previous SCA group called New Farthing (with comparable membership) had existed in the area, only to have their charter revoked after a "coup".

The canton of Ben Dunfirth changed fealty to the Barony of Rising Waters in A.S. XXIII, and became a full Barony in A.S. XXIX.
