Description Bushy Park was the home of Thomas Towers in 1814 and in 1837. In 1840, the Ordnance Survey Name Books refer to it as " a comfortable house, the residence of Thomas Towers" and also include reference to a letter written by Mr. Towers in which he expressed the wish that the house would revert to the name Shesharaghmore house though this does not seem to have happened. Sarah Cambie was occupying the house valued at £15 and held from Thomas Towers in the mid 19th century. David Clarke is described as "of Bushy Park, Borrisokane and Macclesfield" in the 1870s. Still valued at £15 this house was held by the representatives of David Clarke in 1906. A building is still extant at the site.
