Westbelleford

The Canton of Westbelleford was a canton within the Barony of Ben Dunfirth. Encompassing the mundane lands of Brantford, the canton fell into ruin shortly after it's foundation. It has seen its rebirth as the Incipient Canton of Stórfjǫrðr.

History

The Canton of Westbelleford was founded in September of AS 35. Soon after Ben Dunfirth and Ramshaven had a small spat concerning their borders. Ben Dunfirth claimed to hold deeds to Ramshaven lands, while Ramshaven reivers were sighted in Ben Dunfirth.

In time, the settlement of Westbelleford would fall into ruin, but it's memory was kept alive by those who had once dwelt amongst its shattered walls. In time, these surivors gathered up resources, newcommers, and the backing of the Barony of Ben Dunfirth. There they rebuilt the settlement and re-tilled fallow fields. Taking the new name Stórfjǫrðr, they adopted the old arms of Westbelleford, proudly displaying the boar in fealty to their barony.

Thus while Westbelleford is no more, the spirit of the canton lives on.
