When Sir Jonathon Phillipps of Launceston died, his trustees decided to sell the estate.

Due to the Phillipps Estate Act of 1813, for the first time in seven hundred years anyone could buy their property freehold.

The house was purchased by George Coath of Pelynt for £3,000.

The house was lived in by his descendants right up until his great-granddaughter died in 1955.
