From the onset of recorded history, like individuals have gathered in fellowship to ensure preservation of shared interests and in support of the common good. The Noble Company of St. Mary of Walsingham, ("the Noble Company"), is a select group of distinguished individuals who perpetuate the legacy of their ancestors and the history and ideals of through their personal example. Membership by heredity is based on descent from a noble family of any country or by descent from a member of the Noble Company. Membership by personal merit is based on a record of professional achievement, community work, and humanitarian service.
