Membership is limited to 100 hereditary members, at which point membership in this company is closed and a new company established.

Membership eligibility is by inheritance from a Companion or by inherited or granted title of nobility or knighthood,
pontifical honors, or nobility of commission or profession.

The primary tiers of membership are:

Serving Companion
Sergeant Companion
Hereditary Noble Companion

The Adjutant is responsible for content of public communications, such as KnightLife Magazine and content of the Company web site. The Adjutant also manages communications among companions, such as newsletters, and membership actions.

To support member privacy, Companions do not post copies, replicas, or
excerpts of credentials, correspondence, or other documents of the Noble Company
publicly without the express permission of the Grand Master.

Medal of the Noble Company.
May be worn by all Companions and is the primary insignia for Serving Companions.


The green and white ribbon, as well as the use of green and white throughout the insignia of the Noble company comes from the colours of Saxony. This was chosen because the Walsingham Shrine resulted from the vision of a Saxon noblewoman, Richeldis de Faverches in 1061.
