Barony of Nottinghill Coil

The Barony of Nottinghill Coill is a Barony in the Kingdom of Atlantia. It is comprised of most of South Carolina west of I-95. Due to the large area we cover, the Barony is further sub-divided into five Cantons.

The Barony of Nottinghill Coill hosts two main events each year: Yule Toy Tourney on the second weekend of December, and Nottinghill Coill’s Baronial Birthday usually on or around the last weekend of January.

History

In 1975 Gavin Reynes gathered seven college students to form the Incipient Shire of Nottinghill Coill. On January 29, 1976, Lord William de Montegilt, Seneschal of the Kingdom of the East, warranted Gavin Reynes as Seneschal of the Shire of Nottinghill Coill, which, Lord William pointed out, included the entire state of South Carolina. At the Principality of Atlantia Twelfth Night on January 12, 1980, Their Majesties granted the Shire baronial status and invested Gavin Reynes as the founding baron of Nottinghill Coill.
