About Tudor Merchant's House
The year 1500 was a very exciting time for Tenby. The port had a busy sea trade with the West Country and Spain and Portugal. After the Lancastrians won the Wars of the Roses in 1485, Henry Tudor became Henry VII of England. Henry's uncle, the influential Jasper Tudor, Earl of Pembroke, had his power base in Pembrokeshire. He'd invested heavily in fortifying Tenby's defensive walls in the 1450s against Yorkist attacks.
At the back of the house would've been a kitchen centred around a large open fire. The family would've lived mainly on the first floor and slept in the bedroom above.
