In 1786 Wilson notes a house on the left of Whitegate as the seat of Charles Allen. This may refer to the house labelled "Mosestown House" on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map. At the time of Griffith's Valuation it was occupied by Edmund Roche, son of Francis Roche of Rochemount. The house was valued at £21 and held from Edmond B. Roche. Edmund was a distinguished soldier rising to the rank of Major General and married Anna Matilda, daughter of the Reverend Austen, of Hadwell Lodge. In 1894 Slater recorded a house known as Ballymonis as the seat of General Edmund Roche. Mosestown is labelled Ballymonis on the 25-inch Ordnance Survey map of the 1890s. It is no longer extant.
