1860
Originally known as Coldra House, the building dates from the early 1860s when it was the home of Thomas Powell Jnr, the son of a leading figure in the coal and iron trade who formed the Powell-Duffryn Company. Thomas’ tenure was short-lived - in 1869, he and his wife and young son were murdered while on safari in Abyssinia. The Monmouthshire Merlin newspaper reported that Thomas’ brother Henry went to the country to investigate the deaths, but only the bodies of the parents were found and there was no trace of their son, John. More lurid accounts suggest that ‘cannibals’ attacked them.
