The Original Wythe Retinue
During the Wars of the Roses (1455-1487), one Thomas Wythe of Worcestershire was a lawyer and 'commissioner of array', involved in raising the men of Worcester to fight for the House of York. His arms bore a golden lion rampant, on a green field with gold border. One of our group's co-founders has a connection with the original Wythe family, and so it was decided to take the name, in honour of that first Wythe retinue.
