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.

The household has members predominantly from the Barony of Politarchopolis, however, there are also several members from across Lochac and internationally.
