In 1786 Wilson refers to Carrowbrowne as the seat of Mr. Blake. This may refer to Walter Blake as family history records suggest some of his children were born at Carrowbrowne. The castle is shown and labelled on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map of 1842. The townland is part of Lord Oranmore and Browne's estate at the time of Griffith's Valuation. By the time of the 25-inch edition of the 1890s it is shown as "in ruins". Some ruins still remain at the site.
