Lord Manfryd was named master of ships, as well as lord admiral, by King Jaehaerys I Targaryen after the former master of ships, Lord Daemon Velaryon, was raised to Hand of the King. This made Manfryd the first man raised to the position of master of ships that was not a member of House Velaryon.
After Daemon resigned the office of Hand, some suggested that rivalry with Lord Manfryd played a part in his decision.
Lord Manfryd served as master of ships until his own death in 89 AC. His eldest son, Robert, succeeded him as Lord of the Arbor whereas Daemon's grandson, Corlys Velaryon, followed him as master of ships.
