-The favours grew out of the original tradition of the "Most Chivalrous Fighter"​. In the first years of the Lady Mary Memorial Tournament, winning the actual fighting tournament was not the crowning glory of the day - it was being chosen as the Most Chivalrous Fighter. This person was chosen by the Baroness (Fiona) as he rmother, the Lady Mary, thought that his virtue was more important than that of prowess. Grand scrolls were created for both the victor and the Most Chivalrous, signed by the Baron and the Baroness, with the recipients'​ names added on the day. In addition their names were inscribed onto the trophies that were items treasured by Lady Mary, to join those worthy nobles who went before them.+The favours grew out of the original tradition of the "Most Chivalrous Fighter"​.

 As the first years went by, it became increasingly difficult to choose just one person who embodied the virtues of chivalry and honour. The tone of the tournament was such that ALL combatants strove to deport themselves with honour and chivalry upon the field. Everyone wanted the Most Chivalrous title! It was glorious! Then with the addition of the other tournaments,​ it became even more difficult to  choose, because who was to get it? The Fighter or the Fencer? The Archer? The Baroness had to resort to asking the counsel of the Ladies at Court, even the Queen, to aid in her selection of the Most Chivalrous. As the first years went by, it became increasingly difficult to choose just one person who embodied the virtues of chivalry and honour.
