Description At the time of Griffith's Valuation, Moneygold was leased by the Fawcett family from Viscount Palmerston's estate and was valued at £13. Lewis records it as the residence of the Soden family in 1837. McTernan notes that it was the seat of the family from the early eighteenth century when James Soden leased almost 1000 acres from the Temple estate. In 1906 it was the property of Major G.M. Eccles whose mother was Isabella Soden. The house was damaged in a storm in the early 1960s and subsequently demolished.
