In the first book A Game of Thrones, during the tourney being held in honor of the new Hand of the King, Ned is walking through the ground and notices the following sigils:

The shields displayed out each tent heralded its occupant: the silver eagle of Seagard, Bryce Caron's field of nightingales, a cluster of grapes for the Redwynes, brindled boar, red ox, burning tree, white ram, triple spiral, purple unicorn, dancing maiden, blackadder, twin towers, horned owl, and last the pure white blazons of the Kingsguard, shining like the dawn. - A Game of Thrones, Chapter 30

So the first few are identified, but what about the others? Do we know the names of the house they belong to?

    We can only hope that House Wyl’s words are “As cunning as a fox who's just been appointed Professor of Cunning at Oxford University”. – Paul D. Waite Aug 11 '16 at 21:36
