The Ystumcolwyn property was in possession of Lumley Williames, who in 1703 married a kinsman, Arthur Williames of Cochwillan, Gwynedd. The property descended through their son Edward to his daughter Ann who married Howell Vaughan, whose descendant was Sir Robert Williames Vaughan. The stable building and the brewhouse range bear the initials of Arthur and Meriel William(e)s of Ystumcolwyn. A timber beam, reset in a later building in the farmyard, has the inscription IW 1680 MW.
