The Census of Elphin records Robert Burrowes as resident at Caracin in 1749. Johnston Burrowes was leasing a property valued at £3 to the Beatty family at Carrowcrin, barony of Tirerrill at the time of Griffith's Valuation. McTernan states that the property remained in the Burrows family until the early 1900s. It became vacant after the last of the family died and was eventually converted into farm-buildings.

At the time of Griffith's Valuation, Henry Burrowes was leasing a property valued at almost £8 from the O'Hara estate at Coolaney. This seems to be the property marked on the 1st edition OS Map as Greenfield Cottage. It appears on the 25-inch Ordnance survey of the 1890s as Greenville. The original house is no longer extant.
