Description Located south east of Farneybridge this house was occupied by Edward Wilson in the mid 19th century, valued at £34 and held from William B. Armstrong. Raheen Park may have been previously known as Brasfort. Brasfort was the home of the Wilsons in the 1830s. Edward Wilson was Chief Magistrate of Police in county Tipperary in the 1820s. In 1820, his son, Edward Wilson, married Isabella, daughter of Thomas Goodricke Peacock of Fort Etna and they had a son, Thomas Goodricke Wilson, who married Mary Studdert in 1861 and emigrated to Canada. In 1840 the Ordnance Survey Name Books refer to E. Wilson as the proprietor of Raheen Park. Edward Wilson of Raheen Park died at Monkstown, county Dublin in 1880, aged 81, (see D.23260 in the National Archives).
