At the time of Griffith's Valuation John Orpen held land in the parishes of Inchigeelagh, barony of West Muskerry and Cullen, barony of Duhallow, county Cork. John Herbert Orpen was a grandson of John Herbert Orpen, sixth son of the Reverend Thomas Orpen of Killowen, county Kerry and an eminent physician of Cork city in the late 18th century. His uncle the Rev. John E. Orpen was among the principal lessors in the parish of Kilmocomoge, barony of Bantry in the mid 19th century. The Reverend John E. Orpen married Frances daughter of Richard Ashe of Coolehane and they had four sons who all died childless. Their second son Richard Ashe Orpen of Lisheens and later of Elm Park, Cork, assigned Elm Park to his nephew Richard Ashe. Richard Ashe Orpen of Elm Park, Farran, owned 2,204 acres in county Cork in the 1870s.
