Landed Estates database, National Univ of Ireland, Galway: Rev. Arthur Ellis is recorded as leasing land in the parish of Fenagh, county Leitrim, in 1856. The Ellis family had a house at Tankerville, Balbriggan, county Dublin and also held land in counties Cavan and Louth. Rev. Ellis had a shooting lodge at Slievenakilla in the parish of Drumreilly which the family used throughout the 19th century. It was later the property of John Benison, son-in-law of Rev. Ellis. The building is no longer extant. The Ellis estate in county Leitrim amounted to over 3,000 acres in the 19th century. [Source: http://www.landedestates.ie/LandedEstates/jsp/estate-show.jsp?id=588]
