Marche of Alderford greets newborn member

In the Marche of Alderford (located in northeastern Ohio), Lady Zabava and Lord Quentin announce the birth of their son at 4:15 EDT today.

Ekaterina and Quentin Whitmyer in the modern world, Zabava and Quentin are the proud parents of their first child, whose name has not yet been chosen. Baby Whitmyer weighed 7 pounds 15 ounces (3.6 kg) at birth and was 20 inches (58 cm) long. The baby is healthy and happy, and mother is "tired from labor but doing fine otherwise" and in good spirits. A brief hospital stay is expected.

Mom and Dad are both newly-armigerous SCAdians, members of the Marche of Alderford and of the household Erevnite Asteron (the same household and shire as several staff).

Lady Zabava says she's glad the baby was born in mid-July instead of later, because if all goes well she still plans to be at Pennsic this year.

From all of us at, congratulations to the new parents!

Note: The "original article" link below is just a placeholder for now. Pictures of the baby will soon be online, and when they are we'll provide a link to them.


Great news! We can't wait to meet our new household member. Hope he gets along well with big "sisters" Luna and Tigger!
