Late C16 to early C17 house, altered in C19. It is to be distinguished from another farmhouse of the same name in the same parish 1 km further W, sometimes called Llawr-y-dref, which may have been built to replace this house in the earlier C19. Marked on 1839 Tithe Map as owned by the Vaynol estate, occupied by Henry Griffiths.
