In the 1870s Richard Beatty is recorded as the proprietor of almost 600 acres in county Sligo. At the time of Griffith's Valuation, Richard Betty was leasing over 100 acres and a house valued at £6 from the Fury estate in the parish of Dromard, barony of Tireragh. Charles Beatty was also leasing property in the same parish from the Irwin estate, including a corn mill.
