In 1840 the Ordnance Survey Name Books mention Right Hon. Thomas Lefroy as the proprietor of this house, "a neat cottage, the residence of William Kingsley". He was still the occupier at the time of Griffith's Valuation, when the house was valued at £5. Family history sources suggest that the Kingsley family continued to reside at Knigh Cottage into the early twentieth century when it was acquired by the Harty family. It is still extant.
