Conwy had been fortified with a castle and encircled by city walls by Edward I at the end of the 13th century. It was just one in a series of Welsh towns taken by Edward in his bid to maintain English rule and quash any potential rebellions. This house dates back to Elizabethan times when the town was experiencing a resurgence of fortune, and when many wealthy merchants were setting up their homes here.
