Mount Sedborough Manor

One thousand acres was granted to John Sedborough of Porlock in Somerset, England around about 1614, which centred on the townland of Rateen. Originally called the Manor of Latgir but later Mount Sedborough. John Sedborough died in 1629 bequeathing the property to Barbara and her husband John Mayne.

In 1641 during the Irish rebellion of that year, John Mayne was murdered there in front of his family leaving his wife and only son, John. The Mayne family still has descendants of John and Barbara living at Mount Sedborough.
