Extended Information
The area has been occupied for more than two millennia. An Iron-Age settlement has been found closeby and the house lies within the boundaries of the easternmost fort on the Antonine Wall, built c.142 AD. The lands here were the property of the Cockburns between 1358 and 1541. They passed to the Abercrombie family before being purchased by John Hamilton of Letterick (Lord Bargany). The house has also been the property of the Setons and Maxwells.
