House Hewett of Oakenshield rules over Oakenshield, one of the Shield Islands of the Reach.

Lord Hewett's castle, with thick walls and studded oaken gates evoking the ancient arms of the house, sits above the harbor of Lord Hewett's Town, which is a relatively big port.[1]

They blazon their arms with an oaken escutcheon studded with iron, a field bendy of undulating blue and white.[2][1] Their words are not mentioned in the books.


The Shield Islands are a considerable sea strength and were the first line of defense during the days when the ironborn pirates tried to sail up the Mander to sack the wealth of the Reach.[1]
