There’s a notice in the Northern Whig for 22nd June 1892: “In the goods of John Carey, late of Rarity Cottage, Cloghogue, near Toome, in the county of Antrim, Gentleman deceased. All persons claiming to be relatives of the abovenamed deceased are hereby required to furnish to me full particulars of such relationship. 20th June 1892, John K. Currie Solicitor for the trustees, Ballymena.”
John Carey is listed in the Valuation Revision records as renting plot 10b, a house, outbuildings and small garden in Cloghogue. Presumably that was Rarity Cottage.
PRONI has this document relating to him, dated 1850, relating to a farmer who was in financial difficulties, presumably caused by potato blight, prevalent at that time:
D1242/26/2 Record from the Court for Relief of Insolvent Debtors recording the debts contracted by William Neill, senior, late of Lake Hill, Co. Antrim, farmer, committed to Carrickfergus Gaol at the suit of John Carey of Cloghogue, Co. Antrim. Neill states that the cause of his present insolvency is 'attributable to the losses in the potato crop.'
