Wilson refers to Ballybawne as the seat of Mr. Kelly in 1786. Occupied by John Kelly in 1837 and by John Mahon at the time of Griffith's Valuation. The sales rental of 1863 includes a lithograph of Ballybaun, which was described as 4 storeys high. The house was occupied by the Mahon family until 1916 when it was taken over by the Congested Districts' Board. It is no longer extant.
