Sir Watkyn owns estates in South Wales and Gloucester. He was knighted by the king for raising a troop of horse. The troop sadly rode to glory in a small battle in Cheshire. Opinions vary on the troop's loss - the uncharitable suggest that they changed sides, whereas the more charitable argue their destruction. Sir Watkyn holds the cornet (the cavalry flag) of the troop, which suggests that some at least survived to preserve it.
Sir Watkyn has one of two wives, depending on the nature of the living history. They are Lady Margaret and Lady Dorothea. If one is performing this role, the other takes an alternative position in the Household.
