Ty Mawr in Welsh means Great (or “Large”) House, and is located in the Llangasty Talyllyn area of North Wales.  Some of the earliest recorded history of Llangasty Talyllyn dates back to 1584 when High Powell, Lord of the Manor of Llangasty Talyllyn - a title that some sources suggest was given originally to Reginald Walbeoffe by Bernarde Neufmarche, a Normal warlord and the first original conqueror of Wales From the ruins of the Welsh kingdom, he created the Anglo-Norman lordship of Brecon around 1095.

We know the Powells had owned the property for at least 50 years previously, due to a court case between himself and Blanche Parry, a servant of Queen Elizabeth I who had taken him to court over the use of some illegal weirs for fishing in the area.
