John Nesfield’s Retinue
John Nesfield's Retinue is a small group re-enacting the military and
civilian life of John Nesfield's household from 1450 until 1487; John
Nesfield being a retainer under Richard, Duke of Gloucester. Members
participate in battle re-enactment, using longbows, polearms, swords
and firearms. We also support the Battlefield Trust, regularly taking
part in battlefield walks. The group includes keen horsemen and women
who can demonstrate period riding technique, skill at arms and jousting.
The arms, armour and clothing of both horses and riders are carefully
researched to be authentic to the period depicted.
The group are based in the East Midlands, but participate in events both in the UK and in Europe. We belong to both Livery & Maintenance and the Wars of the Roses Federation, whose events we often attend. New members are welcome, including families, and a limited starter kit can be made available. Please email us or visit our website if you would like to know more.
