----- Old world (prior
to the TS2 revolution) -----
The Gobelin Residence was
started 129 years before TS2 by Steven Gobelin and his wife Chia Clemp.
They produced lettuce and kept chicken, although they were very wealthy
compared with Simmerville households at the time. They had 3 children,
and the son Bartemon Gobelin got the house here at 17 Old Simmer Lane.
Less farming took place on the lot, because the next couple generations
worked with education.
Steron Gobelin, who resided
here 62-44 years before TS2, expanded the house - pretty much to the standard
of today. He managed the hood trades, and did well. His 3 children spread,
but son Bartemoleus Gobelin got this house. He worked with education like
his grandfather did. He married Christina Hicks and their son Stewart Gobelin,
the fashion designer, got the house.
4 years before TS2 Stewart
married Angela Mervil (Ol'Ed's grandchild), also known as the cat woman.
She brought the Mervil Market management into the household, while Stewart
established his own clothing studio, Gobelin Fashion.
