House Fossoway green.png
Coat of arms Or, an apple vert
Seat New Barrel
Lord Ser Jon Fossoway
Region The Reach
Title the Knight of New Barrel
Overlord House Tyrell
Founder Raymun Fossoway
Founded 209 AC

House Fossoway of New Barrel is a house of landed knights from the Reach, sworn to Highgarden.

They are commonly referred as the green-apple Fossoways, to differentiate them from the original branch of the house, the red apple Fossoways from Cider Hall. The location of New Barrel is unknown, although it is possible that the lands of the green apples are adjacent to the lands of the red ones.

Their banner is a green apple over a golden field.[1][2] Their motto does not appear on the books.

History

The origin of this branch of House Fossoway is from 209 AC, when Raymun Fossoway took different side than his cousin Ser Steffon, the Knight of Cider Hall, in a trial of seven at Ashford Meadow.

Raymun, who was knighted minutes before the battle by Ser Lyonel Baratheon, fought for his friend Ser Duncan the Tall. To differentiate himself from his cousin fighting for the other side, he painted the apple on his shield in green, playing at Steffon's oft-repeated jape that he was "still green". He stated that he preferred to be green than rotten.[3]

It is unknown how the green house branch prospered after the Ashford Tourney, but approximately a century afterwards its strength was comparable to the main branch.
