Description Wilson, writing in 1786, refers to Cree as the seat of John Becher. At the time of Griffith's Valuation, Sir H. Becher was in possession of Creagh House, then valued at £25. In 1894 and 1906 it was owned by Sir John W. Becher and valued at £30 15s. It is still extant and the well-known gardens are sometimes open to the public.
