 About the Office:

 A Seneschal was an officer in the houses of important nobles during the Middle Ages. In the French administrative system of the Middle Ages, the Seneschal was also a royal officer in charge of justice and control of the administration in southern provinces.

The Seneschal is the chief administrative officer of a canton or other local group. Their job includes coordinating other group officers as required for the smooth operation of the group and is responsible for the relations between the group and outside agencies. The Seneschal presides over group business meetings and is responsible for understanding and, when necessary, interpreting baronial, kingdom, and society laws as well as ensuring that they are followed appropriately.


Welcome to the Canton of Middlegate.

I hope that you are able to find all of the information which you may be looking for about our local chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism. If you have any questions be sure to contact me or any of the other officers listed on this site and we will be glad to help you.
