The Ormsby family had a house at Cummeen, Coolera in the eighteenth century. Wilson noted it as the residence of John Ormsby in 1786, when he describes it as "a magniificent and beautiful seat". At the time of Griffith's Valuation the representatives of Charles Ormsby were leasing the house and land at Cumeen to William Phibbs who in turn leased the house to Alexander Wylie. It was valued at £13. Some building remains and a possible folly are still visible at the site.
