Hugo Swyft was the previous Lord of Cornfield. He married Lady Genna of House Lefford, their marriage yielding three healthy children, the current Lord of Cornfield, Owen, and the twins Victaria and Samwell.
He died during the Oldtown tourney whilst competing in the joust.
Hugo Swyft was born in 323AC to Lord Jaramy Swyft and his wife Genna Brax. His siblings, Joanna, Jeyne and Colmar followed shortly after.
Aware that one day he would be Lord, Hugo was taught from a young age not only to be skilled at arms, but also with people. When the time came, he proved to be a capable Lord, praised by noblemen and smallfolk alike.
