Old Jersey Houses

Vol 1 - 'Here is an exceptionally fine example of a tourelle staircase. It was illustrated by de La Croix, in a rather crude lino-cut. It is clearly the remains of an original house, the south facade having been much altered, but the bottom right-hand window is 17th century, and all the right-hand part looks nearer the original than the left. The tourelle has been heightened but retains two fine windows, which are somewhat larger than usual, though clearly contemporary with the tower.'
