Definitions for "Barony"
All of the individual groups of the SCA are organized in a sort of medieval structure. Our local group is a Barony. Most of the SCA Baronies are made up of multiple groups, for example the Barony Middle Marches to the south of us is made up of several smaller groups called Marches, such as the March of Three Towers (Mansfield Ohio). Our Barony is rather unique in that it currently has no sub groups. All Baronies have a Baron or Baroness.
