RICHMOND, Va. – As the story goes, Rothesay – a nearly 10,000-square-foot riverfront mansion near Carytown — was built to appease an unhappy wife.

News archives say that in 1911, Winifred Duffy Hayden married Jonathan Bryan, brother of newspaper publisher John Steward Bryan.

Anne Anderson, one of the manor’s current residents, said Rothesay began as a place for the newlyweds to settle.

“Mr. Bryan had a house built for his wife and she didn’t like it,” she said. “So he had this built.”
