It is said that the house was built in 1807, for the then owner of the Paper Mill built on the opposite side of the River Clwyedog in 1801, and A.N.Palmer notes that a house had been built here by 1808. A title deed of 1866 shows that the house was built by an Edward Bozley, and it is described as 'afterwards greatly enlarged and improved by Messrs Williams and Joseph Harris'.
