The shire was founded in 1984 by a group made up in large part of persons connected to Goodfellow Air Force Base and Angelo State University . It was originally known as Three Lochs, then as Trelochs, Treloch, and Stamdonshire, but the first name successfully registered for the branch was Standonshire . That was changed to the current branch name in February of 1995 .
The branch arms, Azure, a laurel wreath Or and a chief argent goutty-de-larmes, were registered in November of 1993.
All activity in the shire was voluntarily suspended in June of 2010.
