Families associated with the property


  • IMR 1738 SVB - For Jean Mourant and Susanne Vibert [3]whose first child (of four) was baptised in St Mary in 1723. [4]Jean was the son of Nicollas (1658-1725) and Elizabeth, nee Renouf (1672-1730). We have not been able to place this family in any of our Mourant trees. Jean and Susanne do not appear to have had any grandchildren
  • MRR AE32 1809 - An unusual stone recording a Romeril death at the age of 32 in 1809. Baptism and burial records suggest that this may have been Marie Romeril, baptised in 1778 and died in 1809, the daughter of Jean and Marie, nee Monamy

West gable to road. Two-storey, five-bay house with 20th century two-storey wing running north/south to east.

Notes and references

  1. We have not been able to establish when and why the house acquired this name
  2. Sometimes shown as Rue de l'Eglise
  3. Not Jean Le Bailly and Marguerite Renouf, a clear error in the HER entry
  4. Marriage not found as there is a gap in the registers between circa 1705 and 1730
