Maester Jellicoe was a maester of the Citadel that supposedly lived among the children of the forest. He suggested that the settlement at the top of the Whispering Sound that would eventually become Oldtown began as a trading post where ships from Valyria, Old Ghis, and the Summer Isles put in to replenish their provisions, make repairs, and trade with the "elder races"[N 1]. According to this theory, Oldtown would date to the Dawn Age and predate even the arrival of the First Men to Westeros.
