The Westropp family are recorded as "of Mellon" from the early 18th century. Bence Jones dates the present house from circa 1780, the Ordnance Survey Field Name Books from 1812. Inhabited by Mrs Jane Westropp (nee Dawson) in the early 1850s. It was valued at £36. This 3 storied house was still in Westropp possession in the late 20th century. It is now run as a stud.
