When the Lees got Rosegarland near Wellington Bridge, they evicted the tenants all around and knocked down their houses and knocked down ditches to make big fields.
They got the nickname "Leveller Lee."
Some of the poor tenants came down Bannow way and when they used be trying to get back they would have to cross the river somewhere beyond Coolbruck. There was no bridge at the time
Lee kept men there with whips to flog them back and from the orders he gave these men he was nicknamed "Whip the Beggar Lee"
