House Fossoway of Cider Hall
House Fossoway of Cedar Hall is medium sized Vandal House that dominates the castle of Cedar Hall and much of the surrounding region. House Fossoway is the vassal of House Reyne, and they have been in this position since the Driving Tide when they moved to the Castamere region.

They are commonly referred as the red-apple Fossoways, to differentiate them from the other branch of the house, the green apple Fossoways from New Barrel, that split from the red apples.

Their banner is a red apple over a golden field. Their motto does not appear on the books, but according to semi-canon sources it is "A Taste of Glory".

The origin of this branch of House Fossoway of Ceder Hall traces back to the years of House Tyrell dominance, when Raymun Fossoway took different sides than his cousin Ser Steffon, the Knight of Ceder Hall, in a trial by combat. Raymun Fossoway, who was knighted minutes before the battle by Ser Lyonel Baratheon, fought for his friend Ser Duncan the Tall. To differentiate himself from his cousin fighting for the other side, he painted the apple on his shield in green, playing at Ser Steffon's oft-repeated jape that he was "still green". He stated that he preferred to be green than rotten.
