In 1786 Wilson refers to Roxborough as the seat of Mr. Persse. At the time of Griffith's Valuation it was the seat of Dudley Persse and valued at £70. The house at Roxborough is most famous as the birthplace of Isabella Augusta Persse, later Lady Gregory of Coole. Roxborough is now a ruin, having been burnt in 1922. The impressive front entrance gates (M541136) are still extant. A steward's house house, close to Roxborough, is located at M534128. This is still extant and occupied.
