In the booksEdit

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, House Stokeworth is headed by Lady Tanda Stokeworth, an aged woman who seeks to marry off her daughter Lollys. Their sigil is a white lamb holding a golden goblet on a green field and their words are "Proud to be Faithful."

During the Targaryen Conquest, Aegon I Targaryen's army landed at the mouth of the Blackwater River, on the northern bank (at the location where the city of "King's Landing" was later constructed). Aegon had three thousand soldiers and three dragons. Rosby and Stokeworth were the first two strongholds in the path of the Targaryen army: faced with such a force, and only able to muster their small local garrisons, both Rosby and Stokeworth surrendered without a battle. Duskendale and Maidenpool also soon surrendered after brief engagements. Their armies were then added to the Targaryen forces and continued on through the rest of the conquest.

During the reign of Aerys II, Manly Stokeworth was Commander of the City Watch. He was succeeded in the position by Janos Slynt. Littlefinger remarked that the widowed Lady Tanda has no love for the Lannisters: it is quite possible that Manly was in fact her husband, and that he died during the Sack of King's Landing committed by Tywin Lannister's army.

House Stokeworth seems to be one of the important major families from the Crownlands - though not quite as important as rulers of Rosby and Duskendale, given that Castle Stokeworth has not appeared on official maps of the Crownlands, though it has been mentioned that it is located on the road between Rosby and Duskendale. Even so they are not a vassal of any other noble House, and are an important supplier of food shipments to the capital.

During the War of the Five Kings, with the two major breadbasket regions of both the Riverlands and the Reach rising in rebellion (for Robb and Renly, respectively), food shipment to King's Landing from outside of the Crownlands cease. Soon after Tyrion Lannister arrives, he notes that the lands of House Rosby and House Stokeworth combined are supplying fully half of the food shipments that are still entering the capital city, so it would be best not to offend them. These continued shipments manage to keep the city and its garrison relatively functional, but the food shortages still cause prices to drastically increase, leading to much suffering among the city's poor.
