In 1814 Ballyeighter was the residence of Anthony Donnellan. Lewis records Balleighter as the seat of P. Donnellan. By 1855 it was being leased by Lord Clonbrock's estate to Martin Coolahan and was valued at £8. The Coolahans continued to own the property until the mid-20th century when it was divided by the Land Commission who also demolished the house. There is no trace of Ballyeighter now.

Burkeville was offered for sale in the Encumbered estates court in July 1852. At the time, Maurice Bennett was the tenant of this "fine commodious dwelling house". This was a later house. At the time of Griffith's Valuation it was held by Nicholas Coolaghan and valued at almost £10. It was still in the possession of Nicholas Coolaghan in 1906. A house still exists at the site. The Sale Notice also refers to the site of the original Burkeville house, which was, by then, no longer extant but which it was suggested could provide the site for another commodious house.
