Members of Lord Grey’s Retinue
Stephen Albright, A Gentleman or an Archer.
As a Gentleman, Stephen serves as Lord Grey’s Kitchener. He is responsible for the management of all foodstuffs for the household. He has several properties located mainly in Wessex and Devonshire and has a small manor near the household given to him by Lord Grey for exemplary service.
Stephen tries to balance his duties as Kitchener with seeing to the proper upbringing of his two daughters. His eldest daughter Alice is recently married to a minor knight. This means greater political connections for Stephen and also an increase in property and money. His youngest daughter, Rachel, resides in the household of his oldest friend. The lady of the house is supervising Rachel’s education and teaching her the skills necessary to be a proper Gentlewoman. Although Stephen is a gentleman of modest means he has a few trusted servants to manage his affairs and to take care of his properties.
