Rathurles was the home of the Brereton family in the 19th century. Occupied by John Brereton in 1814 and T. Brereton in 1837. In 1840 the Ordnance Survey Name Books refer to it as "a modern building". Thomas Brereton was still resident at the time of Griffith's Valuation holding the property valued at £27.15 shillings from Patrick Kernan. Home of Hugh Finch in the 1870s. This house is still extant and occupied.
