Situated on the estate of Edward C. Villiers, this house was the home of a branch of the Blennerhassett family in the mid 19th century. It was named Rock View on the first Ordnance Survey map. The Ordnance Survey Field Name Book refers to Rockview as a "plain thatched cottage built in 1819". On the later 25-inch map the house is labelled "Rockfield House". Slater, in 1894, refers to it as the seat of R.B. Blennerhassett. In 1906 Rockfield was described as a mansion house and valued at £22. It was occupied by Richard A. Blennerhassett. A house is still extant at the site.
