Originally the area of Aberglasslyn was a grant of 1,100 acres in June 1822 to Henry Dixon Owen who had arrived from England in 1821 with his brother. 

In 1824 Owen built a cedar and bluegum cottage on the property. In 1828 the estate and uncompleted house nearly 90 feet long were sold to Sir John Jameison. During the next eight years, the estate was let to John Dow and during his occupation, the name “Aberglasslyn” appeared for the house and surrounding land.
