History

Later C17, much remodelled in late C18, retaining characteristic C17 stair wing. The roof timbers are apparently dated 1765 and 1771 with the initials of Edward Vaughan (d1796). During renovation, a date of 1666 was discovered upstairs. Home of Thomas Lloyd of Wernvylig, who gave it to his brother, Morgan. Probably sold to Edward Vaughan, who rebuilt the house. Recently restored (January 1996).
