In 1879, following the death of its then owner Sir Richard Waldie Griffith the estate passed to the wife of Colonel Bramston Smith of Dublin and then to her daughters, one of whom was married to Lieutenant Colonel Phibbs of the Royal Irish Fusiliers and the other to Captain Newman of Cork. By 1916 the estate was in the possession of Mrs. Phibbs`daughter, Mrs. H.T. Daniell. The Pencraig estate was sold in 1952. A housing estate and College bearing the name Pencraig were established on the site.
