Gwydir Castle


This castle, or fortified manor house, was the home of one branch of the Wynne family. It has been beautifully restored by its present owners.

See their website.

It was built, according to this website,
by Howell Coetmore, who fought under the Black Prince as commander of longbowmen at the battle of Poitiers in 1356. Following the Wars of the Roses the castle was rebuilt in around 1490 by Meredith, founder of the Wynn dynasty and a leading supporter of King Henry VII.
Meredith is the 10th great grandfather of Emily Parsons née Wynne.
