In 1703 William Gore of Woodford bought part of the estate of Charles O'Connor, attainted, in the barony of Ballintober, county Roscommon. Sir Ralph Gore, of Belle Isle, county Fermanagh, served as High Sheriff of Leitrim in 1710 and later as Speaker of the Irish House of Commons. His mother was Hannah Hamilton of Manor Hamilton, county Leitrim. McParlan includes John Gore of Woodford on a list of "resident gentlemen of property" in 1802. Robert Johnston Gore offered for sale lands at Tumonaghan as well as the house and demesne at Woodford in the Landed Estates Court in June 1865. The Gore estate at Woodford still amounted to over 500 acres in the 1870s. By 1906 the house and c.100 acres of untenanted land was the property of Emily Upperton. Members of the Gore family served as High Sheriffs of Leitrim in 1677, 1734, 1774 and 1775.
