 ===== Persona ===== ===== Persona =====
-The Honourable Lady Emelote of Calais (//​pronounced:​ Ehm-eh-loh//​) was born in Calais, France in 1494. She is the only child from her parents. ​ Her Father ​was a Merchant of the Staple of Calais and was influential in the wool trade in Calais. Being the only child, her Father ​thought it wise to educate her in the wool business so that she may ensure the family legacy, no matter the man she married. Her family spent time between Calais and their wool estates in the Chichester area of England. ​+The Honourable Lady Emelote of Calais (//​pronounced:​ Ehm-eh-loh//​) was born in Calais, France in 1494.

-Emelote married in 1512 to Geoffrey of Calais, a Mercer and they returned to London. They were blessed with a daughter in 1525. Unfortunately,​ Geoffrey died in 1530 from a fever when he was returning from the continent. Emelote then took over their London business and shop and has worked at expanding ​the it. She is determined to move the business to become larger importer of various goods and supplying to the various London shops and shoppes around England. She enjoys the exchange and challenge of finding the best materials and sundries at good prices. She travels between their estate, London and Calais learning the trade and researching about diversifying in imported fabrics. When she is not working in the business, she continues her husewife duties and teaches their daughter all she needs to know to continue the business when she leaves this mortal coil. The year is now 1535. +Emelote married in 1512 to Geoffrey of Calais, a Mercer and they returned to London. They were blessed with a daughter in 1525.
