House Ashford of Ashford is a vassal house from the Reach that holds fealty to Lord Bronn of Highgarden. Their seat is Ashford.


Season 5

Samwell Tarly presents some paperwork to Lord Commander Jon Snow consisting of requests to various noble Houses to send new recruits to the Night's Watch. Few Houses can spare any men during the War of the Five Kings so the Watch is left scraping the bottom of the barrel: the requests are mostly to minor lords that Jon says he hasn't even heard of, including Lord Ashford, Lady Caulfield, Lord Smallwood, Lord Mazin, and Lord Wibberley.[1]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, House Ashford is never mentioned. It is unknown which side the house took at the Battle of Ashford and at Robert's Rebellion in general.

The house is mentioned in "The Hedge Knight" (the first of the "Dunk and Egg" stories) and in "Fire & Blood".

The Tourney of Ashford, hosted by House Ashford in 209 AC, 90 years before the beginning point of the novels, is where Ser Duncan the Tall first met young Aegon V Targaryen (known as "Egg"), beginning the Tales of Dunk and Egg.
