Rosemerryn is on an ancient site. First known record is 1283. In 1721, J.L. Mason
paid rates on Rosmerryn. In 1746, it was occupied by Richard Mason, Esq., but the
family was reduced in a few years and the mansion was going to ruin. In 1773, Capt.
Peter Brown, of the Packet "King George", purchased the estate. He married Mary,
daughter of Capt. John Trounde, and was sheriff of Cornwall in 1775.
