King Henry VIII Armour

Photo of armour made for King Henry VIII around 1545 which was made by the Master Armourer, Erasmus Kyrkener and my 15th great grandfather.

Erasmus often referred to as Asymus was one of King Henry VIII's favorite workmen.

What talent, Erasmus!

What's in a Name

There are many meanings behind the names we are given.

My name broken down is:

Autumn = my mom’s favorite season

Lorraine = named after my grandmother

Baccelli = the pod of leguminous plants

I decided to adopt a Hebrew name. My Hebrew name is:

Bathshua  ( בַּת־שׁ֫וּעַ ) = I chose this name for several reasons, but I will list only two of them for now. My 9th great grandmothers name. Her line connects to my Magna Carta lines.
