At the time of Griffith’s Valuation, Henry Herbert was leasing a property at Torc, valued at £39, to Sir Thomas Herbert. Lewis refers to it as the residence of Capt. Herbert in 1837 while Leet mentions it as the seat of Charles Herbert in 1814. In 1906 it was part of the Guinness estate and valued at £11 10s. Bary states that Torc Cottage was a handsome property surrounded by plantations. McCoole claims that Henry Arthur Herbert had built Torc Cottage for his mistress. The building is no longer extant.
