My local re-enactment group is a shire called Tree-Girt-Sea, and we live in the Incipient Barony of Ayreton, which is shortly about to rise from incipient status to actual baronial status. I thought I’d mark the occasion by presenting the baronial couple with a set of feastware. They’re free to keep it for themselves, keep it for any/all who hold the office, give it away as largesse, or keep it for the barony to loan to distinguished guests. Their choice. That’s what makes it a gift rather than a trust.
