Notes and references

  1. There is confusion about whether the property is in Rue de La Mare Ballam or Rue des Issues. It depends on where one ends and the other starts, and without access to official maps it is not possible to reconcile the differences of opinion between HER, the Datestone Register and Google Maps. It does seem to us that the datestone register, which shows Rue des Issues, is wrong and that the original house, or houses, is on the roadside of Rue de La Mare Ballam, and the redeveloped outbuildings are accessed from Ville des Chenes behind
  2. Cross-referencing this record, the entry in the Datestone Register, and a 21st century almanac, suggests that the property started out as a single building, known as La Sergine. According to the Datestone Register, at some point in the early 18th century it was divided into two, named La Sergine and La Sergine Mauresque. This seems unlikely because country properties did not have individual names at this time. By the time the property was listed in the late 20th or early 21st century, the two homes had again been combined into one, called La Sergine Mauresque. Still later there has been considerable development and La Sergine Mauresque and three other properties, presumably the former outbuildings, now comprise Clos de La Sergine, and there is a further property called La Vieille Sergine
