At the start of the Faith Militant uprising in 42 AC, King Maegor I Targaryen gave Lord Meadows command of six lordly hosts against nine thousand Poor Fellows at the town of Stonebridge. Led by Wat the Hewer, the Poor Fellows were caught between Lord Meadows' hosts as they attempted to cross the Mander. The poorly armed Poor Fellows were slaughtered by a charge of armored knights on heavy horses. Wat the Hewer was captured, but not before slaying half a dozen knights, including Lord Meadows.[5][6]
