Notes and references

  1. One of two properties so-named, after the ancient, long-extinct, family of that surname. The other is in Trinity. In the mid-20th century it was decided to anglicise the St Peter one, to `Bradford`!
  2. John James, Mary Elizabeth, nee Rive, and their daughter Freda Maud
  3. The N is inverted and joined to the L in the first name and the L is joined to the M in the second. Nicolas Le Metre (Maistre) and Marie Le Brocq. Under removed render on the front of the house
  4. We have not been able to place Nicolas and Marie in any of our existing family trees. There is no record of any baptisms of their children, but it is possible that the Nicolas Le Maistre who married Elizabeth Le Brocq in St Peter in 1723 was their son
