George Nugent Reynolds was the owner of Letterfine in the late 18th century. McParlan records Mr. Reynolds of Letterfyan as a resident proprietor in Leitrim in 1802. Tradition suggests he was afterwards murdered by Richard Keon, a lawyer. His daughter Mary married John Peyton of Laheen and secondly Richard McNamara. His son George Nugent Reynolds (1770-1807) was a noted ballad writer. Members of the Reynolds family were High Sheriffs of Leitrim four times in the seventeenth century.
