A Clash of Kings Edit

House Caswell follow their liege lords in declaring for King Renly Baratheon upon the death of King Robert Baratheon. Catelyn Stark meets Renly's army under the walls of Bitterbridge, where a feast and tourney are being held. Lord Caswell shuts himself up inside Bitterbridge after the death of Renly near Storm's End.

A Feast for Crows Edit

Caswell men are encountered at Maidenpool by Brienne Tarth. This presumably means that Lorent Caswell has sided with his liege lords in favour of King Tommen I Baratheon. It also suggests that the Caswell forces are under the command of Lord Randyll Tarly, who held Maidenpool at the time.
