House Staunton of Rook's Rest is a noble house from Rook's Rest in the Crownlands. Neither their arms nor their motto have appeared in the books, but according to semi-canon sources they blazon their arms with two black wings upon a white fess on checkered black and grey.[1]


The Stauntons supported the blacks and Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen's claim to the Iron Throne during the Dance of the Dragons. Lord Staunton was killed by the greens during the Battle of Rook's Rest, and his head was taken to King's Landing.[2]

Ser Joffrey Staunton served in the Kingsguard during the reign of Aegon III Targaryen.[3]

Septon Sefton was the brother of Ser Simon Staunton, the third husband of Lady Rohanne Webber. Sefton served at the Great Sept of Baelor and at Coldmoat.[4]
