Early LifeEdit

Ainsley is the middle child of her mother and father. When she was around 11 her older sister left to be a Ladies-in-Waiting for the Queen of Scotland, and moved to France. Her parents sent Greer off since their money was drying up, and they needed her sister to marry someone rich.

Season 1Edit

Greer and Leith are talking in the kitchen at night during the Boating Party. Leith Bayard tells her a story about his father's favourite goat he had to chase, after he decided, no more sheep and goats, indoor work for him. Greer tells him, her father keeps hounds, and they're all over the house. She even thinks he cares more about the hounds than her mother and sisters. Revealing her father sent her away with Queen Mary to find a husband. She has to marry well, for her family's sake. Her parents made that very clear to her. The only way to rise in the world is through land and title, and for people like them, they have to marry them. Love has no place in her life, but she hopes it will, but has four younger sisters counting on her. If she rise, they rise. Adding when they saw her off to France, her father looks at her like an investment, wondering if she'll fail, or pay off.

Ainsley Norwood was with her younger sister Colleen and their father when they arrived at French Court to meet Greer. She had been away for over a year and was now engaged to Lord Castleroy, another Lord Julien declined to marry her. Their father was annoyed Greer had taken so long to get married and have been complaining about it the whole way to France.

Once inside the castle they met Aloysius Castleroy, who looked a bit older than expected, but was very nice. Their father was pleased when Aloysius decided to weive the dowery payment for Greer' hand.

Days later at dinner, things were going very well until Robert Norwood began insulting Greer again. Her future husband stood up for Greer and demanded he treat his soon-to-be wife with the respect she deserved. Then Lord Castleroy told everyone he was going to give a huge amount of money to all of Greer's sister so they can marry for love, and not be forced into the same pressures Greer was forced into.


  • Toy Soldiers took place over a couple weeks. Robert and his family would have lived at the castle for 3-6 weeks.
