Samuel Barrett was leasing a house valued at £24 from John Blakeney in 1856. In 1837 Lewis had recorded Greenhills as the seat of S. Barrett. In 1885 Walford noted that it was the residence of Mrs. Barrett, widow of John Samuel Barrett. In 1906 Greenhills was part of the estate of Lord Ashtown (Trench). The house is still extant but derelict.
