This property is featured in Vol 2 of Joan Stevens' Old Jersey Houses and Grouville, the History of a Country Parish, the parish's millennium book.

A gatepost at the entrance to the farmyard has TLB EBT 1769 and this is repeated on a flight of external stone steps in the outbuildings, representing Thomas Labey (1710-1785), Constable of Grouville, who married Elizabeth Bertram. Thomas inherited La Fontaine in 1744 from his father, Philippe, who married Jeanne Anthoine of Longueville.
