In the Books
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Pennytree lies in the frontline of frequent border disputes between the Blackwoods and Brackens and possession of the town has changed a lot over the centuries. It is named for a huge old oak tree, to which hundreds of copper pennies have been nailed. It has a holdfast as strong as any in the riverlands, with thick stone walls twelve feet high.
On the way back from Raventree Hall, Jaime and his troops stop at Pennytree. He notes that Pennytree has been burned in the War of the Five Kings, but most of its houses have since been rebuilt. The inhabitants hide at the stronghold, fearing that the troops arrive to raid the village, as happened more than once. Jaime tells them he does not mean harm, but they do not believe him. One of his knights suggests to break into the stronghold or burn it down, but Jaime refuses to harm people for no reason.
