Description The original house, now a ruin, was sometimes known as Creaghduff. Creaghduff was occupied by Burke esq in the 1770s. Thomas Ruttledge of Bloomfield made his will at Bushfield in 1797 and died there in 1805. Bushfield was the home of Arthur Knox and his wife Barbara, nee Lambert. Their daughter, Elizabeth, married Annesley Knox of Rappa Castle. Barbara married Charles White as her second husband and sublet the house to Robert Fair, son of Robert Fair of Fortville. It was valued at £15 the time of Griffith's Valuation. Robert Fair of Bushfield had an only daughter, Jane, who married Thomas Ruttledge of Bloomfield and their second son took the surname Ruttledge Fair. A new house was built in the 1920s and is the home of the Delaney family. Extensive remains of the original Bushfield farmyard survive at the site.
