The Ryswells are not the original Lords of the Rills; but let us cast a veil over those difficult times.

They are loyal vassals of Winterfell, who have often intermarried with the Starks; they breed superb coursers, the north's best warhorses; from their seat between the barrowlands and the Stony Shore they are the north's first line of defense against Ironborn reavers, a responsibility they address with the utmost seriousness.

The present head of the family is a woman, Eddara Ryswell, who became her father's heir after the deaths of not only his only son but his eldest daughter. The Rills is not unsatisfied with her: there's many a man-at-arms who'd have had her the heir all along, son or no son…
