Tordane held the lands between Terrick's Roost and Hag's Mire at the end of the riverways coming down from Seagard. The name of Tordane Tower, and the presence of the crane quartered with the Nayland Harpy on the Stonebridge banner are the last traces of the family. The town is a center of trade and commerce. Most of the traffic of merchants stems through Stonebridge and often the outlying areas bring in their wares to take advantage of the goods coming down river.
House Tordane has been joined with House Nayland by the marriage of the Lady of Stonebridge, Isolde Tordane and the Lord of Stonebridge, Ser Ryker Nayland. Before the union, Stonebridge and Tordane were bannersworn to House Terrick. The land is now in allegiance with Nayland. Ser Tyroan Nayland has been appointed Steward of Stonebridge, while Ser Rygar Nayland serves as Sheriff.
For generations the blood of Tordane has overseen the care and management of Stonebridge. The last Lord to rule over the town was Geoffrey Tordane and his heir to be was Geonis Tordane. Both men perished Robert's War during the Battle of the Trident in the year 283 AL. This left his only trueborn child the Lady Isolde to oversee the rule with her mother Lady Valda as first regent, then later castellan.
With the marriage of Lady Isolde to the Young Lord Ser Ryker Nayland, the rule of Stonebridge has fallen to House Nayland, the rival to House Terrick. Upon the wedding, Nayland troops marched across the famous stone bridge the town is so named for. Ser Ryker's death made the Nayland hold on Stonebridge tenuous, despite the fact that Isolde was pregnant with his child. Ser Riordan Nayland was placed as Lord Regent over Stonebridge.
With Ser Gedeon Rivers being legitimized as Ser Gedeon Tordane by King Robert, it seemed that the Naylands would lose their hold on Stonebridge, but Ser Rygar challenged Ser Gedeon to judicial combat and killed the newly-legitimized bastard. Immediately after Ser Gedeon's death, Lady Danae Westerling stepped forward to claim marriage to Ser Gedeon the night before, and that she was certain she was pregnant with the Tordane heir.
Lady Danae Tordane has proven to be pregnant, although the paternity of the child has been called into question. With the support of Houses Charlton and Haigh, she attempted to seize control of Stonebridge by military force. After the Charlton and Haigh forces were fought to a standstill in a bloody draw of a battle, Lord Walder Frey stepped in to call a halt to the conflict. He took Lady Isolde and Lady Valda back to The Twins, and placed Ser Tyroan Nayland, Rickart's youngest brother, as Steward of Stonebridge until such time as he deems otherwise.
