Started reading this book recently, but I have a few questions on the terminology. What is a bannerman? What is Theon Greyjoy's relation to Eddard Stark? I know that Greyjoy is Stark's ward, but what is a ward in the sense of this book?

A bannerman is the person charged with carrying the armies banner into battle. They're usually found in the proximity of the leader of the army.

As for the relationship between Theon and Eddard there is no biological one if I remember correctly. Theon is a prisoner in all but words. In order to maintain a peace/alliance between the Stark and Greyjoy families Theon has been sent to Winterfell for a number of years. It was a pretty common thing to do in medieval times.
