Canton of Wyndriche (incipient)

For many years residents in the southern area of the Barony of Endewearde have expressed interest in forming a distinct group that would work together to bring more opportunities for participation in this medieval hobby of ours known as the Society for Creative Anachronism. During the summer of 2013 they formed the incipient Canton of Wyndriche which is a smaller SCA group contained within Endewearde's borders. Residents of the new canton are submitting the name Wyndriche and a device (coat of arms) for registration in the SCA College of Heralds. Lord Otto Gottlieb, Seneschal of the Barony of Endewearde, has prepared the following map of the incipient canton:

The following Endewearde postal codes comprise the proposed canton lands:

04910 Albion, 04915 Belfast, 04917 Belgrade, 04918 Belgrade Lakes, 04921 Brooks, 04922 Burnham, 04924 Canaan, 04926 China, 04927 Clinton, 04929 Detroit, 04932 Dixmont, 04937 Fairfield, 04941 Freedom, 04943 Hartland, 04944 Hinckley, 04848 Islesboro, 04949 Liberty, 04849 Lincolnville, 04951 Monroe, 04952 Morrill, 04962 North Vassalboro, 04963 Oakland, 04354 Palermo, 04967 Pittsfield, 04969 Plymouth, 04973 Searsmont, 04974 Searsport, 04975 Shawmut, 04976 Skowhegan, 04978 Smithfield, 04358 South China, 04986 Thorndike, 04987 Troy, 04988 Unity, 04989  Vassalboro, 04901 & 04903 Waterville
