Le Bocage Cottage was sold for £625,000 in 2005 and £860,000 in 2010. It is not clear whether this was the name for the whole property at the time or whether this was a sub-divided element of Le Bocage House

Families associated with the property

  • Mourant: The 1901 census showed widowed market gardener Abraham Mourant (1859- ) living here with his daughters Ruby (1889- ) and Florence (1896- ) and sons Ernest (1890- ) and George (1893- ); also shown in the census was Abraham's widowed mother-in-law Amelia Dean (1837- ) who was listed as a housekeeper and was presumably looking after her grandchildren. Dean was her maiden name because Abraham's wife was Minerva Amelia Benham, known as Milly. Abraham was the son of Philippe and Jeanne, nee Ahier. We have not yet been able to fit the family into any of our trees.
