Robert Atkins Twiss, second son of Robert Twiss of Cordell House, county Kerry, was living at Parteen Villa in 1837. In 1840 the Ordnance Survey Name Books refer to Parteen Villa as the residence of Thomas Mansell Bradshaw, "a neat house in the cottage [stile]". The house was occupied by the representative of Robert Twiss at the time of Griffith's Valuation, value at £29+ and held from Mrs Margaret Ormsby. Parteen is probably the house at Birdhill occupied by Robert G.E. Twiss in 1906 and valued at £30. A building is still located at this site.
