At the time of Griffith's Valuation, Edward Cooper owned a property at Rosses Upper, barony of Carbury, valued at £16. In 1906 the representatives of William Middleton held a property here valued at £18 as well as over 350 acres of untenanted land. The property also has associations with W.B. Yeats who used to spend holidays here with the Middleton family. The house is now a ruin.
