Known members of the House:

Wife of Halys Hornwood. She was born a Manderly and is a cousin of Lord Wyman. At the time of ASOIF she is a middle-aged woman, past the time of child bearing. After the death of her husband and son she had a number of suitors who would have liked to marry her and become regent of the Hornwood lands. There was also a question of the succession. The candidates with the best chances seemed to be Lawrence Snow, the bastard son of Lord Halys, and Beren Tallhart, second son of Lord Tallhart. His mother, Lady Berena Talllhart, was a sister of Lord Halys.
The Bastard of Bolton struck first. He captured Hornwood, forced Lady Donella to marry him, and killed her by starving her. He then took the Hornwood lands as his own. In response to her death, Lord Wyman Manderly sent armsmen to capture the castle.
Sister of Lord Halys married to Leobald Tallhart. Her son is suggested as adoptive son and heir for Lady Donella.
The bastard son of Lord Halys, he is presently in the care of House Glover. He is suggested as heir of Hornwood.
