Ellis had a shooting lodge at Slievenakilla in the parish of Drumreilly which the family used throughout the 19th century. It was later the property of John Benison, son-in-law of Rev. Ellis. The building is no longer extant. The Ellis estate in county Leitrim amounted to over 3,000 acres in the 19th century.
