Description Frederick Blennerhassett was leasing this property to Francis Chute at the time of Griffith's Valuation, when it was valued at £13. Lewis notes Kilkeaveragh House as the seat of Reverend J. Maunsel in 1837. Bary quotes O'Donovan who claimed that Francis Chute had built this house in 1836 but it is possible that he renovated an earlier property. The house is described as "in ruins" on the 1895 OS Map but there is a house labelled Seamount a short distance away, which Bary states was built by the Blennerhassetts and is still extant. Details of ground plan of Kilkeveragh House are held in the National Library of Ireland, Ms.13,631(7).
