Overview

House Fossoway of Cider Hall is a noble house from the Reach, sworn to Highgarden. Cider Hall is located at the fork of the Mander and the Cockleswent. They are known for their vast orchards.

Their banner is a red apple over a golden field.

In our canon, the Fossoways are split into two branches based on an old land dispute, long before they ever branch off into separate houses. They are divided, but still one family, with two lords who come together to dual rule.
