Region Riverlands

House Goodbrook is a noble house of the riverlands. Neither their arms or their words appear in the books, but according to semi-canon sources they blazon their arms a blue wavy bend on gold.[2]

The name of the keep of the Goodbrooks and its location are unknown. The lands of House Smallwood of Acorn Hall are near those that belong to House Goodbrook,[N 1] so the Goodbrooks probably live east of the Red Fork.[3]


Lord Goodbrook supported Harwyn Hardhand, King of the Iron Islands, when he warred against the Storm King Arrec Durrandon.[4]

Lord Goodbrook was one of the lords from the riverlands that stayed loyal to King Aerys II Targaryen during Robert's Rebellion, instead of following the banner of their liege lord. For this, Lord Hoster Tully descended upon the Goodbrooks and destroyed at least one village. After the war, his son made peace with King Robert I Baratheon and Lord Hoster, but the wealth of the Goodbrooks had been substantially reduced from the fighting.[5]
