- In 1707 the Bournes family, Cromwellian settlers from Castle Connor, county Sligo, acquired lands in the Rossport area, barony of Erris, county Mayo, from Sir Arthur Shaen. Branches of the family were established at Rossport, Carrownaglogh or Stonefield and Portacloy, parish of Kilcommon. In 1855 George Smith Bournes, eldest son of Samuel Bournes of Rossport House and his wife Maria Watts, daughter of Andrew Watts of Ballinglen, county Mayo married Elizabeth Hartley Isabella Wallace, eldest daughter of Charles P. Wallace formerly of Lime Park, county Galway. The Countess of Wessex descends from this marriage, seehttp://www.thepeerage.com/p10414.htm#i104136.
Almost 3000 acres of John Bournes estate in county Mayo was offered for sale in the Landed Estates Court in November 1867 but the sale was adjourned due to only one bid being placed. In 1876 members of the Bournes family living in Clara, county Offaly, owned 5760 acres in county Mayo. Most of the estate was sold to the Land Commission in 1926.
- The house at Limepark is recorded as the seat of C. Wallace in 1837. Horatio Wallace was one of the principal lessors in the parish of Aughrim at the time of Griffith's Valuation. In December 1858 he and his wife Maria Jane, offered for sale in the Encumbered Estates Court lands in the baronies of Tyrawley, county Mayo, Corran, county Sligo and Kilconnell, county Galway. The original lease dated from 1783, the lands in Corran being leased between the Ormsby estate and Matthew Fleming. J.E. Wallis of Beaufort Square, London, is recorded as owning over 400 acres in county Galway in the 1870s.
