House Beesbury of Honeyholt is a noble house from the Reach, sworn to the Hightowers.[2] Honeyholt is located next to the Honeywine river, which flows towards Oldtown and the Whispering Sound.

Their arms are three yellow beehives on a black pale over a paly black and yellow field.[3][4][5] Their words do not appear in the books, but according to semi-canon sources it is «Beware our Sting».[6]


Lord Lyman Beesbury was the master of coin and a member of the small council during the reign of King Viserys I Targaryen and before that to his grandfather Jaehaerys I. He was slain at the start of the Dance of the Dragons.[7]

During the Tourney of Ashford, bold young Ser Humfrey Beesbury splintered twelve lances against Ser Humfrey Hardyng in a match the smallfolk called "the Battle of the Humfreys". Humfrey Beesbury, who happened to be brother by marriage to Humfrey Hardyng, took part in the trial of seven on Dunk's behalf. Humfrey Beesbury was slain in the first charge by Ser Donnel of Duskendale from the Kingsguard.[3]

Blind Ben Beesbury was one of the candidates Prince Doran Martell offered to his daughter Arianne for marriage.

Ser Hugh Beesbury took part in the wager on Brienne of Tarth's maidenhood, offering her as a present a pot of honey "as sweet as the maids of Tarth".
