House Manderly of White Harbor is an ancient house from the North with its origins in the Reach.
A thousand years before the conquest the Manderlys lived at the banks of the mighty river Mander, but they were driven away byHouse Gardener. They fled north and were welcomed by the Starks of Winterfell as their own bannermen. Due to those origins, they are the only noble house from the North of Andalish origins and customs, and thus they follow the Faith instead of the Old Gods.
Eventually, they became the lords of White Harbor, previously inhabited by pirates that were driven out by Jon Stark. White Harbor is the only city in the North, and a main port for commerce and naval transport.
Their blazon is a white merman with dark green hair, beard and tail, carrying a black trident, over a blue-green field. Their motto has not yet appeared in the books.

“They rode by night, and by day took refuge from the sun beneath their tents. Soon enough Dany learned the truth of Doreah’s words. This was no kindly country. They left a trail of dead and dying horses behind them as they went, for Pono, Jhaqo, and the others had seized the best of Drogo’s herds, leaving to Dany the old and the scrawny, the sickly and the lame, the broken animals and the ill-tempered. It was the same with the people. They are not strong, she told herself, so I must be their strength. I must show no fear, no weakness, no doubt. However frightened my heart, when they look upon my face they must see only Drogo’s queen. She felt older than her fourteen years. If ever she had truly been a girl, that time was done.” — Daenerys Targaryen; A Clash of Kings
