At the time of Griffith's Valuation all of Belclare townland was held by James Pinkerton and John Thompson who had a large milling business there, as well as three houses valued at £26, £13 and £18. The Livingstones must have bought out Pinkerton and Thompson. Belclare Lodge is marked on the OS map of 183. The Livingstone's house is shown on the 25-inch map of the 1890s, labelled Shivdella House, which is still extant.
Buildings were demolished at Belclare in the late 20th century to make room for building development.
