It was certainly a desirable residence and one which boasted a plethora of high society owners over the centuries, from Sir Rhys ap Thomas, ally of Henry VII, to the Herberts and the Mansels (who also owned nearby Oxwich Castle in south Gower). Each in turn put their stamp on the place. Sir Rhys is credited with adding a new two-storey porch block. However, when Rhys’s grandson was executed for treason during the rule of Henry VIII, Weobley was returned to the Crown.
