The first mention I can find of the Haven, Nantyderry is a newspaper advert placed by Miss Byrde for the sale of the property, this was on the 5th November 1920.
Miss Byrde was selling the property to relocate to Weston-Super-Mare.
In 1921 the owner of the property was Mr John Williams, he again placed a for sale advert in the Free Press in November 1921:
“The House stands in its Own Grounds of One acre or thereabouts with Lawns and Kitchen Garden and is surrounded by a large collection of very fine Shrub and Fruit Trees. The House consists of Hall, Drawing Room, Dining Room, Kitchen, Pantry, China Pantry, Scullery, a Convenient Office with Greenhouse attached, Four Bedrooms, Bathroom and upstairs W.C. There are several Outhouses.
The Property is Freehold and is situated within three minutes walk of Nantyderry Station abutting onto the main road from Penpellenny to Nantyderry. It commands a beautiful view of the best parts of Monmouthshire. The House was built quite recently and is fitted out with all modern conveniences. There is a splendid supply of water.”

On the 1926 electoral register Evan and Ann Jones are living at the Haven
In June 1930 Mrs Annie Jones of the Haven had a rug stolen from her motor car whilst parked outside the house.
The 1939 register gives the residents as Evan Jones, a master mariner born in 1878 and his wife Annie who was born in 1884.
