Auvergne Farm

This property merits only the briefest of mentions in the first volume of Joan Stevens' Old Jersey Houses, and that is a reference to a 'curious piece of stone built into a wall along the road' with a carved design which Mrs Stevens could not decipher. She says that chamfered window sills and lintels are evidence of an earlier house on the site, but makes no attempt to date that which stood when she wrote her book.

An addendum in the second volume records the presence of a dates stone with MLF 1696, thought to be for Moyse Le Affole, or Laffoley. J Laffoley was the occupant in 1849, so the property apparently remained in the same family for some considerable time.
