At the time of Griffith's Valuation Robert De La Cour was resident at Fairy Hill, which he held from the Earl of Limerick. The buildings were valued at £36. Hajba writes that Robert lived in this house from circa 1817 to 1878. The property then passed to his niece, Miss Herrick of Shippool, who married William Nicholas Wrixon Becher in 1888 and this couple lived at Fairy Hill. Fairy Hill was in use as a nursing home at the beginning of the 21st century.
