House Errol of Haystack Hall is a noble house from Haystack Hall in the stormlands, one of the principal houses sworn to House Baratheon.[3]

Neither their arms or their words appear in the text. According to semi-canon sources they blazon their shield as a yellow haystack on orange.[4]


During Aegon's Conquest, Lords Errol, Fell, and Buckler ambushed Orys Baratheon's host as he crossed the Wendwater. The lords later hid in the kingswood, but Rhaenys Targaryen set the forests ablaze with Meraxes. Lord Errol was killed prior to the Last Storm.[5]
