History

House de Ufford is a new noble house, formed on the 4th of Juillet in the Year of the One 1866. Then Sir Wulfred de Ufford was raised to nobility by His Grace, Duke Gauvain Tarris for loyal and lengthy service to House Tarris and the Crown. Granted first a small holding, the former home of the Malkess family who were found to have betrayed the Crown in the recent Thorn rebellion, and then the entirety of the former Malkess fief of Aspendon. Following the death of Lord Wulfred on 12 Aout 1874, the fief was inherited by his son, Sir Godfrey.

The Lords of Aspendon are vassals to Viscount Chandus.

House Relations

Chandus Thomas : House de Ufford has loyally served House Tarris for as long as we can remember and being raised to such a position only instills what an honour it truly is. Especially when made vassals to House Chandus, another family we have fought beside in many a war. We will serve them steadfastly and without complaint. By their will and by their command we shall ride and serve.
