Officers

In the SCA an officer is a volunteer who performs a specific task within the group.

Seneschal Seneschal
Local chapter president responsible for conducting business meetings and acting as legal representative of the group. The Anglo-Norman term sénéchal referred to an officer in large or prominent noble houses. More often, it referred to a royal administrative officer in charge of justice and administration of a county. These officers would assist judges at assizes, assemble juries, and collect fines. The term was primarily found in the southern provinces of France, particularly the Languedoc region. The northern parts of France called the office bailli, or bailiff. These French terms (seneschal and bailiff) were used to describe the English position of sheriff, a contraction of shire reeve. This term continues to this day despite the Norman conquest of England.

 Casatellan Castellan
  Our Castellan welcomes new members, arranges educational demonstrations for schools and organizations, and points new members toward those that can help them with clothing, armouring and learning. The Castellan was the constable, governor or captain of a castle. The word was derived from the Latin Castellanus. The castellan usually combined the roles of majordomo and military administrator, particularly in the absence of a resident Lord. The term châtelain (or the feminine châtelaine) is the same position in France with the same Latin roots. There is a small difference between the French and the English terms, however. In France, with the feudal system rising, the term changed from meaning the office in charge of a jurisdiction surrounding a castle (working for the count), to a hereditary fiefdom of an area where there was no viscount. The term châtelain continued to be used for the concierge châtelain, equal to the English castellan. The term chatelaine also refers to the decorative belt hook worn on the belt with chains for holding useful daily needed items like scissors, keys, household seal, etc., usually entrusted to the lady of the house.

 Pursuivant Herald
Our Herald can help you choose your personal coat of arms or device. In the SCA, herald and pursuivant are used interchangeably, often the latter ranking lower than the former. A herald is the precursor of the modern diplomat. They were sent by royalty and nobility to make proclamations and carry messages. One of their major responsibilities after the late middle ages was the regulation of coats of arms, the symbolic designs seen on shields. It was given the name heraldry.

 Armoured Marshal Armoured Combat Marshal
In the SCA, a marshal is similar to a referee. Our combat sports are based on the honor system. If one is struck fairly on the arm, one decides to lose the use of that arm. The marshal is also responsible for the safety of participants. The word marshal comes from Old Norman French maréchal, meaning stable servant. As marshals became trusted members of court, the title grew in reputation. An anglicized Latin term was created from the words comes stabuli, meaning a nobleman in charge of the stable. This became the word Constable.
