The roll is preserved in the record office, Dublin. It was edited by Richard Caulfield in 1859.

The Cliffes of Ireland had significant land holdings in Ireland.Bellevue was purchased about 1825 by Anthony Cliffe, whose family seat was at Abbeybraney, near Gusserane. The Cliffes had come to Ireland with Cromwell's army in 1649 and had been given grants of land in counties Meath and Wexford. By 1822, they had added substantially to their holdings with properties in counties Cork and Kilkenny.
