The sale rental states that Robert Biggs built this house for about £800 in the mid 19th century. It is not marked on the first edition Ordnance Survey map. Griffith's Valuation records Samuel Biggs as the occupier of the house, valued at £11 and held from Edward Biggs. The sale rental of November 1867 advertised the sale of a valuable leasehold, the estate of Samuel and Robert Biggs, at Gortmore (222 acres and dwelling house). The 22[2?] acre estate of Samuel Biggs at Gortmore was sold to John Samuel Clarke, the petitioner, in November 1867 for £650 (The Irish law times and solicitors' journal: Volume 1, 1868 - Page 679). A house is still located at this site.
