that's very kind - thanks

it would be great to discover who built them, if there is any mention in old papers

is it possible for me to access any of these papers online, do you now (to save you  and any others any trouble on my behalf)?

I don't think local papers are online. There will be a bit of a delay in checking my local library as the service is closed at present to facilitate a move to a brand new purpose built and high tech(or so I'm told) library which will open in about two weeks.

To answer my own question, 9 years later: The Sea View in question is a sub-townland area located in Forth Commons, on the mountain of Forth. There are references to the area from before 1865 down to the present time.
This makes perfect sense to me as the correct location, as the family concerned were residing in Forth Commons at the time of Griffith's Valuation. And yes, there is a "sea view" from the mountain, hence, presumably, the name.
