Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

An historic farmstead of principally 18-19th century character, with much earlier circa 1500 origins. Mon Plaisir retains a cohesive character and its ancillary structures include a locally characteristic 19th century combination farm building with glazed upper windows, and good quality stone-built pigsties.

A building is shown on this site on the Richmond Map of 1795. The building dates from 15-16th century, developed in the 18th century and refronted in 1823. A farm group with L-shaped plan, comprising a south-facing farmhouse attached to the working buildings - an outbuilding and pigsties to the west, with a single-storey outbuilding range projecting forward on the east side; all enclosing a front garden and yard.

21st century residential development to rear.

  1. Although we have little doubt that Peter was descended from one of the Therin families which came to Jersey from the Brittany town of Ploeuc-sur-Lie we have not been able to place him in any of our Therin trees
  2. Clifford was the son of Eugene Peter Michel, a farm labourer. We have not been able to place them in our Michel family tree, or find any more information about this family
  3. Shown in OJH list as ELG, corrected in Datestone Register
