Early C19 farmhouse with added service range. One of the earlier houses surviving in the area which was largely built up with mine-workers cottages for the Penrhyndu mine. There are variant spellings of the name. Marked on the 1839 Llanengan Tithe Map as Marchrhos, owned by the Vaynol estate, occupied by Thomas Jones. Captain Henry Jones of Marchroes (1820-59) is buried at Llanengan, and the name of the farm now applies to the settlement called Machroes around it. In poor condition 1997.
