The Lord of Lerd was a nobleman who lived in a beautiful palace. Although he had a daughter named Bessie Blithesome, he was one of a few people who did not welcome Claus on his early travels; his servants shut the door on the traveler's face.

Later, his daughter visited Claus with a cavalcade of horsemen to ask for a toy. She received the first doll from Claus. (The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus)
