Anne Neville is recorded as one of the principal lessors of property in the parish of Ardcarn, barony of Boyle, at the time of Griffith's Valuation. A Mrs. Neville, with an address at Stradbally, county Laois (Queen's county) is listed by Hussey de Burgh as the owner of over 300 acres in county Roscommon in the 1870s. The Landowners Survey published in 1876 records her as the owner of over 700 acres. There is also some evidence that a Rev. Brent Neville served as a clergyman in Roscommon in the 1850s. H. Neville of Cork was the holder of several townlands in the parish of Ardcarn, barony of Boyle at the time of the first Ordnance Survey in the 1830s. The Peyton family of Knockdrehid acted as agents.
