Maesmor Hall, Llangwm parish, Wales

Maesmor is on the A5 between Dinmael and Maerdy, in Llangwm parish, some way W of Corwen, N Wales.
This was in the historic county of Denbighshire.
It is now in Conwy.
It is near the 3-way junction of Conwy, Denbighshire and Gwynedd.

Maesmor Hall is on the River Ceirw (in Welsh, "Afon Ceirw"), on the Maerdy side (E side) of Maesmor, in extensive grounds.

Maesmor Hall is on a site dating from the 13th century.
There is an old Castle Mound at the site.
Not sure when current building dates from.

Maesmor Hall was owned by the same family continuously (with switches into female lines) since 13th century.
Surname eventually became "Maesmor" in 16th century.
It passed by marriage from the last Maesmor to Peter Maurice est c.1718.
Then passed by marriage to Edward Lloyd est c.1775. He was living there by 1776-77.
Then passed by marriage to John Manners Kerr 1829.
The date "1830" is on the front of the present building.
[Hubbard, 1986] describes the 1830 works as "a Neo-Tudor remodelling" rather than a totally new building.
John Manners Kerr certainly living there as at 1841. He died there 1843.
His widow died there 1859.
Her sisters, elderly unmarried Lloyds, lived there. Last one died 1872.
William Kerr and Elizabeth Parry then lived there. He does not descend from Lloyd but she apparently does. She died 1908. He died 1911.
Their son William John Kerr was selling off land there in 1920.
Was owned by same family (through female lines) for 700 years. Think now sold.
Now a guesthouse.
