Tom Wilson: You are right, there, Chris - from Wikipedia article:
"Plas Mawr was built in the town of Conwy between 1576 and 1585 by Robert Wynn.[4] Robert came from a prosperous local family and entered the service of first Sir Walter Stonor and then Sir Philip Hoby, both administrators and senior officials to King Henry VIII.[5] Robert fought and was injured at the Siege of Boulogne in 1544, took part in military campaigns in Scotland and traveled extensively across Europe.[6] He invested in land across North Wales and married his first wife, Dorothy Griffith, a member of the local gentry, in 1570.[7] Once married, Robert needed a suitable house and chose to settle in Conwy, a prosperous town that was known in the 16th century for its genteel society.[8]"
