Abraham Evans, with an address at Derrynahinch, is recorded as owning over 700 acres in Leitrim in 1878. Two other Evans family members owned land in Drumkeeran at the same date. Jared and John Ovens, also of Derrynahinch, owned nearly 400 acres in Leitrim at the same time. A rental in the National Library shows William Johnson renting out land at Drumkeeran in the mid 19th century.
