The earliest mention of the estate is in 1544, when William Griffiths, the Rector of Llanfaethlu, whose ancestors were the Griffiths family of Penrhyn, bought a house named "Ty'n y Pant".[1] His grandson, the Chancellor William Griffiths, oversaw the building of a new house on the site in 1634.[2] Another William Griffiths, the Chancellor's grandson, made further alterations in the late 17th century and early 18th century, the oldest of which remains in the southwest side of the house.[1] The fine hall of the house dates to this period. During the ownership of Holland Griffiths (1756-1839) in the late 18th and early 19th century,[3] further remodelling of the estate was conducted, during which time the dining room, sitting room and library were given a major renovation. The interior was updated in the 1980s.[1]
