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. Their motto does not appear on the books.

Origin

The origin of this branch of House Fossoway traces back to year 208 AL, when Raymun Fossoway took different sides than his cousin Ser Steffon, the Knight of Cider Hall, in a trial by combat.

Raymun Fossoway, 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 Ser Steffon's oft-repeated jape that he was "still green". He stated that he preferred to be green than rotten.[1]

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.
