Old Jersey Houses
This secluded house near Carrefour au Clerq was dated to 1668 by early 20th century historian Edmund Toulmin Nicolle but this date could not be confirmed by Joan Stevens, who mentions it in the first volume.
The bench beside the hearth which Nicolle discovered has long since disappeared, along with a bread rack.
