House Swyft of Cornfield is a vassal house that holds fealty to House Lannister of Casterly Rock. Their seat is Cornfield, located north-east of Crakehall and south of Clegane's Keep. They are landed knights rather than a full noble house.[1]

Their sigil is a blue bantam rooster on yellow. Their house words are "Awake! Awake!"

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, House Swyft is counted as a strong vassal and ally of House Lannister. However, Tyrion Lannister considers Ser Harys to be a chinless craven and lickspittle of little worth. Dorna is described as "equally chinless" as her father.

House Swyft joined their Lannister lieges in siding with King Aegon II Targaryen during the Dance of the Dragons.  At this time they were a full noble house, but by the time the series begins they are a knightly house. How the Swyfts lost their lordship is unknown.​
