The household was founded in 2005 after Sir Stephen and Mistress Mathilde stepped down from reigning as Crown of Lochac.

Saint Piran, patron saint of Cornwall and tin-miners, is the nominated patron saint of the household. He was thrown off a cliff in Ireland, tied to a mill rind, and floated to Cornwall upon it. As such, the household device is black and white, in the colours of Saint Piran, with a mill rind in the centre.
