Description In 1786, Wilson refers to Farmhill as the seat of Mr. Vesey. Dean Arbuthnot, who lived in the house in 1814, was rector of the parishes of Crossboyne and Kilcolman and a brother of Sir Robert Arbuthnot. The Gonne Bells were recorded as resident in Lewis and the Ordnance Survey Name Books. The house appears to have been known as Farmhill during the Vesey/Arbuthnot/Gonne Bell ownership and thereafter as Carradoyne House. It was occupied by Thomas Elwood in 1845 and by Lady Lynch Blosse at the time of Griffith’s Valuation. By the 1860s it was the home of the Sheffields. It was occupied by Katherine Tynan and her husband, Henry Albert Hinckson, during World War I. Carradoyne House is still extant and occupied.
