Robert Nesbett was resident at Fort Nesbett in 1814. The Ordnance Survey Name Books also mention him in 1839 though they refer to Thomas Towers as the proprietor of the townland. In the early 1850s, Thomas O'Brien was the occupier, holding the property from the Reverend James Nesbitt. The buildings were valued at £12.15 shillings. A building is still located at this site.
