Historic Environment Record entry

This does not appear to be a listed building, which is very unusual for a property of this age and history.

There is no entry for the house itself, but one for the three datestones

Old Jersey Houses

A brief entry in Volume 2 records the three datestones and suggests that the house was built at 'about' the time of the 1863 stone

Notes and references

  1. An unusual stone with Jean represented by the traditional 'I' but Jeanne by the more modern 'J'
