Old Jersey Houses
- "This is an example of a small farm complete with all its appurtenances, including accommodation for horses, cows, heifers, pigs, hay and potato lofts and bakehouse. The cement cladding of the house masks its age, but careful examiunation suggests that it is early 18th, if not 17th century, and that it almost certainly had a tourelle stairway.
- "An adjustment of rents in about 1780 shows that the house then belonged to Amice Perree, having previously belonged to Jean Le Cornu, son of Jean, of Les Landes."
