At the time of Griffith's Valuation, John Beecher held two substantial properties in fee at Maulbrack. They were purchased in 1703 by Henry Beecher from the trustees for forfeited estates. In the early 1850s the larger was valued at £36 10s. In 1837 Lewis and Leet in 1814, had noted Hollybrook as the seat of Richard Beecher. It was offered for sale in the Encumbered Estates Court in 1851 and again in February 1852 and April 1858, when the sale notice included a lithograph and floor plan of the house. A plan of the demesne is also included. This house was also the seat of the Beecher family in the late 1770s and noted by Wilson as the seat of an earlier John Becher in 1786. Colonel Anthony Morgan was the owner of a property valued at £150 here in 1906 and The O'Donovan was resident in the mid 20th century. The original house is not extant but a later house exists at the site.

Bunalunn or Mount Music
At the time of Griffith's Valuation, Rev. Richard Webb was leasing this property from Col. Clarke's estate, when it was valued at £10. Lewis had noted it as the seat of R.F. Webb. Leet refers to it as the seat of Alex O'Driscoll in 1814. In 1906 Capt. Anthony Morgan was the owner of this property, then valued at £26 5s. The house is named Mount Music on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map but as Bunalunn on the 25-inch edition of the 1890s. AS Mount Music it gave its name to a novel by the celebrated Anglo-Irish writers, Somerville and Ross. The house is still extant and was offered for sale in recent years.
